Amazing Portrait Film Photography by Alexander Nesterov

Alexander Nesterov is a 30-year-old Ukraine-based photographer who has been taking pictures during the last 5 years, “started it in 2012 when I buy my first camera – Digital Canon EOS 400D. I rarely talk about myself and do not particularly like it. So I try that  my shots say more about me, then I can do it by myself.”

Alexander shoots on both film and digital. His work focuses mainly on portrait and fashion photography, as well as the street fashion. “I use different cameras, from  digital cameras to film, including the medium format, as well as a camera with instant printing like Fuji Instax camera.  Since each of these cameras gives a result and I like its own way. But must confess, most of all I like shooting film, it gives me a big pleasure.  And I hope film not yet says it last word in photography.”

Erin Oxnam - 5 things I love about Film

Erin Oxnam is a 24-year-old Australian photographer who is living on the Gold Coast in Queensland. “I've been shooting film regularly for 4 years now and will continue to do so until everyone stops producing film.”

Erin comes to share with us her main reasons that make her still love shooting film.

1. There is variety. I love that every single film and camera does something different. Novelty seems to be something that has become more important to me as I grow up and provides a lot of change and excitement into my life. I love that you can choose between 35mm, slide film, medium format, instant, disposable, SLR, TLR, Instax, Polaroid, super 8... the list goes on and on. The possibilities are vast and so much more exciting than digital photography.

2. Nostalgia. There's a reason why we look at photos from the past and feel warm and fuzzy looking at them. Photos taken on film are timeless and when people look at film photos they love them, without necessarily knowing why or what it is that makes the photo feel so special.

3. The unexpected. When I get a roll of film developed usually I can only remember a couple of images that I have taken on the roll so I'm left with about 20 surprises - those surprises sometimes end up being my favourite photos.

4. Community. The film community has grown so much in the last few years and it's been amazing to see the young photographers in particular embrace film. It's so easy to snap 50 photos on your phone in a couple of minutes but to be limited to less than 36 photos per roll (depending on the camera/film used)  you really do have to think about the shot which makes for a better photo. When I take a picture of my friends with a film camera and send them the photo, it almost always becomes their profile picture on various social media sites. I know it doesn't have much to do with my limited skills as a photographer - it's all film.

5. Film reflects the way we live life. Our brains remember fragments, bits and pieces of memories. Sometimes it's grainy and sometimes it's blurry, just like film photographs.
