Filipa has a lot of reasons to love shooting film and today she came back to share with us her 5 main things.
1. Excitement. What I love most about film photography is the excitement you get when you finally see the photo you took after you get your film developed. I sometimes even forget what I took, so seeing the result after you shot those 36 photos is quite a beautiful feeling.
2. Imagination. When you take your photo, you're not sure how it will actually turn out and you have to wait until you get your film developed. I often find myself imagining how they might look like and thinking if I did everything right and what would happen if I didn't. Will they still look good enough?
4. It's beautiful. I think I can also say that film photos have this beauty that can not really be described. From the colours on the photos, grain, light leak, etc...
5. Camera. My Minolta is probably my biggest treasure. The thing that also makes it special is that it was gifted to me by my dad, who used it more than 40 years ago.
