Romana Camenzind - 5 things I love about Film

Romana Camenzind is a 23 year-old psychology student from Switzerland, who shoots both film under her nickname paularoïd and digital under a bird flies by on Flickr. We asked her to tell us five reasons why she's still shooting film.

1. In film photography, there are no rules. I can do whatever I want, try out and experiment, make double or multiple exposures without knowing what will happen.

2. There is always this thrill to wait for your developed film. How will it look like? And what was on this film roll again? It's like opening a present.

3. The realisation of limited opportunities, coupled with the rising prices of film makes one more conscious and selective about composition, lighting and subjects before the finger hits the shutter button and then I can hear the sound of the camera, this certain click which I love so much.

4. Film photography brings back much nostalgia. It just looks different. The colours, the sharpness, the tones. It IS different.

5. It is possible that I make mistakes. Beautiful mistakes.
