Why I love old school cameras
When I used to work, I earned good money so buying and processing film wasn't an issue. Nowadays, I only take photos when it counts. It can be frustrating, especially when they don't turn out that great, but when you get a good one, it's magic.
Here are a few photos from a roll I'd almost lost (It was in the Mamiya when I sold it!) and another I shot a few months ago. The lost roll was a slide film, which we get cross processed. It gives them this slightly ethereal look, surreal colors and edgy contrast. Will I ever achieve this with a digital?
