Elif Eren is a Turkish photographer who is living in Istanbul. She loves to travel and shoot everything around, especially moments that she suddenly meets.
Elif has joined with us in few projects before, and she has just come back in another project called 5 things I love about Film to share with us her 5 main reasons that keep her passion on shooting film.
1. You can't see instantly!
2. Film is like manual experiment. If you want the grain, close to iso. If you want light-leak, turn on your camera's top (or cover, lid?) for 2-3 seconds. And if you want more green, shoot with Fuji film. It's easy.
3. Every camera has a different voice. when I bought a new camera I was so excited because nobody knows what will happen to film, which is endless combination.
4. When I'm taking the photographs I put myself into analogue camera. Where do I have to focus on? Is there any beautiful image? Then where I live not enough to take amazing photos, so I must see another places, I must go another mountains, nature, seasons, cities, or countries.
5. I love to capture the moment. I love the negatives, it's not like digital.
