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.
