Brandon Wilson - 5 things I love about Film

America based-photographer Brandon Wilson who joined with us in few film photography projects before now coming back to share the reasons that make him still love shooting film in another project called 5 things I love about Film.

1. The process. It's not about guessing and checking. It forces you to be knowing of your craft. To be disciplined.

2. The look. Digital cameras have come a long way, but the texture, the colour, the richness and life of film emulsion can't be fully replicated.

3. The fear. Did I expose properly? Is the camera functioning correctly? Did the lab develop it right? Do I have enough shots left on this roll? It's exciting. To be certain, yet always questioning.

4. It's tangible. It's right there in your hands. You can see it and feel it.

5. The relationships. With the shop owners that sell me film.The technicians at the lab who process and develop my images. The subjects in front of my lens who become excited and nostalgic at the use of film. I would miss that.
