Film Photography by Scott Levine

Scott Levine is a photographer based in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. He shoots almost entirely film, except for some snapshots of the family. "I'm in my 40s now, so I've been shooting film since I was a kid," he says. "Over the years, I've realized that I love all there is about using film, all the way from loading the camera, through shooting only a few photos, only what I need, and making sure they're good, through developing them myself. Sometimes it takes me weeks to shoot and develop a roll. There are few things that I enjoy more than pulling a fresh roll of negatives out of the tank and holding them up to the light that first time. I mostly like to shoot landscapes near where I live, and love to collect and try out old cameras. If they're fully manual, so much the better. A film advance lever is good for the soul."

His favorite cameras are Minolta X-700, Olympus XA2 and Yashica-Mat 124. "It's fun for me to experiment with different cameras, films, and developers, but all that really matters to me is composition," he adds. "I tend to be drawn to simple and clean compositions, usually in black and white." Here's a selection of his work.
