We may connect here
But is there respect here
Do we listen
Or try to be heard
When we portray our originality
Are we instead just following the herd
Life should be unique and inspiring
But the noise around us is extraordinarily tiring
The chatter is relentless
And I wonder if we spent less
Time posting and posing
If we'd find more time for learning and growing
I call out to all the makers, the creators, the imaginators
Let's construct the world anew, let's leave behind the wasters

35mm film photography is where I started; film was the only game in town when I was a younger photographer. Then there was digital, which didn't look promising at first. But as dSLRs got better, film photography started to take a back seat. 35mm and medium format film stuck around even though camera manufacturers weren't interested in making film cameras as much.
People started coming back to film after the love affair with DSLRs started to wear off. Even younger photographers, looking for something more tactile, more real, are getting into film (35mm, medium format, instant). I don't think this is a fad. I think the craft of photography is about choice of medium, now more than ever. Wet plate, to film, to digital... it's about recording light.
But it's also about the feel of the tools and the response you get from the subject (in portraiture) based on the tools you're using. I love the feeling I get from a 35mm camera; the manual winding of the film, the manual focus, the click of the shutter. Shooting with film is a slower process. It's more deliberate and considered.

I mean c'mon if this shot doesn't make you baby hungry?!! I was loving having the opportunity to photograph this sweet little fella this last week with @j.l.baker . He was a dream baby for sure... and a perfect baby fix for me.
