11 Feb Lomo + Film
It’s like the old holden vs ford, nikon vs canon comparisons…….film vs digital. Since working here at CESCO I have noticed a lot of photographers coming in and purchasing film – going back to the roots of photography. Its not just the older-aged amongst us either, younger photographers have shown an increased interest in film cameras such as the Lomo Diana range. In fact, the range was one of our most popular Christmas pressie sellers.
So is there an urge for people to go back to something that is a bit elusive? Something that offers more of a challenge than just popping a card into a reader, loading the image to the computer and make a few changes in Lightroom, PS or your chosen program?
Shooting film makes a person stop and think about their shot, aperture, lighting and other environmental factors. You slow down……there’s no delete button on the camera!!
I guess what we would like to know is do you think film photography is a dying art or is it something that should be considered a crucial part of the photographic experience?
