Film Week – Flowers in the Greenhouse

My beautiful pictureI think another aspect about film photography is the medium, – film. On my digital cameras I shoot onto my SD cards, fill them up, empty, wipe, start again. There is nothing wrong with that – really from an environmental perspective, its better, and once one has the camera, its certainly a lower ongoing cost! But film, you purchase it. 24, 27, 36 shots per little round canister. You shoot the given shots it provides you, and then somewhat magically (ok, just chemically) develop those shots into negatives. That roll of film is a one off. It does not have multiple lives. Each frame was created to capture one, and only one image forever. It may well be a rubbish image, but there is still something special about it.
