Film: Love Hate

Finally got around to developing some film. To be honest, while I love shooting film developing and scanning myself has gotten tedious. I just don’t have the time any longer to set aside for marathon developing sessions followed up by marathon scanning sessions. I’m beginning to hate this part of the process. I know hate is such a strong word. Don’t get it twisted film will always have a place in my life. While most days I have my Fuji X-Pro2 slung across my shoulder rest assured there’s also a point and shoot film camera in my bag, whether it be my Holga 120N, Olympus Stylus or Leica Mini Zoom.

Luckily in Seattle we still have a few dedicated analog labs operating and thriving with the resurgence of film. I may just go ahead and support these local businesses and start sending a few rolls there way. Everybody wins.

A few sacred frames from the Rolleiflex. I say sacred not because of the subject matter but because of the time. Rarely these days do I go out just for the sake of making images. When I exposed these frames that was one of those days. I took the Rollleiflex over the Leica that day because I wanted to slow down and take my sweet ass time. Note to self, make time for the sole purpose of shooting this summer. Oh and these were shot on old faithful Kodak Tri-X 400, forgive the puns I’m a dad now and they just come so easy.
