From a stroll in the woods

Earlier this week it was a day when it was not raining…

So I took my dogs and my camera and went for a refreshing walk in the woods. I did some double exposures and yesterday I developed the Fuji Provia 100F 120 in C41 chemicals at home.

Usually I do not crossprocess films with macro pictures, but I wanted to try this, and I am quite happy with the results.

One of the big reasons why I love working with film, is that I force myself to slow down, to be here and now, in a completely different way than when I photographed with a digital camera. Then could the thoughts flutter away while I photographed. But when I came home with almost only garbage on my memory card, I was frustrated.
How often did it happen that I would rather left my camera at home to avoid frustration, and longing for taking great photos left a hole in my soul.

So now I feel much more satisfied again, having found my way back to the film photography again.

  1. Stunning photos. Excellent work. And love your comments about slowing down with film. I’ve never worked with film, but I can imagine it through your words.

  2. Excellent photography! Love the multiple exposures. I love digital photography but it misses the “romantic” features of analogue/film. For one, the waiting to see the result. Everything has to go so fast nowadays that so many people have to re-learn “enjoy”.

Please, share your thoughts
