From our clients to seasoned photographers, more and more people are turning back to film photography and discarding the digital camera for a more nostalgic form of preserving memories. Kodak even came out with their new 35mm camera this year. Film photography is an art form that has been around for over a century. With the advent of digital cameras, film photography became even more of a rarified art form. As someone who worked in photography before digital cameras were readily available, I started as a film photographer and still use this medium to create art to this day.
One of the main advantages of film photography is the unique look it provides. Film has a different color palette, contrast, and grain structure than digital, giving it a vintage, timeless feel. This look is hard to replicate with digital technology, and it is one of the reasons why film photography is still popular today.
Another advantage of film photography is the process of shooting. With digital cameras, you can take hundreds of photos in a matter of minutes. With film, you have a limited number of frames per roll, and you need to be more intentional with your shots. This process of slowing down and thinking more carefully about each shot can lead to more thoughtful and intentional photographs.
Film photography also has a unique dynamic range. It handles highlights and shadows differently, creating a more natural-looking range than digital cameras can achieve. This gives film photography a look that is closer to how the human eye sees the world. To see more of our team’s work in film check out our gallery here.

Film photography is a beautiful and unique art form that is still popular today. The process of shooting with film is slower and more deliberate than digital photography, and it requires a different set of skills. However, the unique look and feel of film photography make it a worthwhile endeavor for anyone interested in photography. If you’re interested in trying your hand at film photography, start by choosing the right camera, buying film, and simply practicing.
