Samuel West Hiser - 5 things I love about Film

Samuel West Hiser is an American photographer & printmaker based-in West Tisbury, Massachusetts. He teaches darkroom technique with the Holga at Featherstone Center for the Arts. Hiser’s work has appeared in The Vineyard Gazette and elsewhere.
"A photograph is text. It can contain any and all the parts of speech. It is a way of speaking without speaking."
Here, 5 reasons why he's still shooting film:

1. Because I can (I have access to a darkroom).

2. The palpable depth of the emulsion.

3. Changing film types & speeds is cheeper & easier than changing digital sensors.

4. Grain added by a computer is an ethical misconduct.

5. It makes me wait.
