Giuseppe Lacorazza - 5 things I love about Film

25-year-old New York-based Colombian photographer Giuseppe Lacorazza has been shooting film mostly and had his work featuring on Shooting Film 2 months ago.

For Giuseppe, film photography is just a hobby because his main work is a professional cook, but it always play an important part in his life. So he has many reasons to keep it on and he would like to share with us 5 main things.

1. I love the fact that once I shoot and take a picture it's printed in the film forever, you can't delete them as you would in a digital camera. That idea of how definitive my choices are is appealing to me, as it makes me be constantly aware. I only have certain amount of frames to shoot, so I have to make them count.

2. To me film delivers a sense of nostalgia that you can't get with digital camera. The grain and the colours always take me back, as if what I just shot was a distant memory in someone else's life.

3. I love the feeling of excitement and anxiety that I get once I finish a roll. I want to develop them right away.

4. One of my main reasons to shoot only film is the fact that I'll always have my films with me, the memories of my life today are saved in the countless films that I have developed. I like that its a physical, tangible way of keeping memories, instead of just pictures stored on a PC.

5. To finish, I would say that I prefer analogue cameras because I feel more in control. I like to set it up the way I like it and because it's my camera that's shooting I won't find pictures that are the same way. Every camera has a special something that gives it an identity, whether is a flaw or just a setting.
