One of the biggest changes for me, since embarking on The Film Project, has been to carry a 35mm camera instead of my normal digital.
In part, this transition is made easier because of the capabilities of the iPhone, which I use in tandem with the film camera. For every film shot I capture, I also record a digital so I can have valuable metadata such as time, place, and even weather conditions.
For example, this image, "Not a Through Street," was captured a 11:20 am on Jan, 22, 2016, on Sebastopol Avenue in Santa Rosa, CA. The temperature was 57 degrees at capture. I used a Contax G1 with 28mm Zeiss and Fujicolor Pro 400.
Having this kind of data, not to mention a digital version, alongside my film shot has added new life to my analog photography. It really is the best of both worlds. And instead of running into a dead end, I think my analog work has a bright future.
