So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about incorporating film into my portrait sessions. My first photography training began with film back in high school. It was a completely different feel from digital. Don’t get me wrong, I love digital. But there is this distinguish look that film can get that digital can’t. The following images where taken today with my 35mm Minolta camera, it was built in 1979 and it still works like new. They don’t make them like they used to. By the way, this is the first camera that I’ve ever owned and it survived a house fire.
