Enjoy the experience of shooting with film


Beyond Digital - Why Film is Back

A surprising trend has emerged that's capturing the hearts of Millennials and Gen Z. It's the rekindling of love for film cameras. But what exactly draws these generations to this analog world? It's the thrill of an experience that provides a break from the digital world. Let's delve into it.
For this young generation, information and entertainment have always been just a tap away, instantly gratifying our desires. However, this convenience can be unfulfilling at times. The beauty of a film camera lies in its thoughtfulness. Loading a roll of 24 or 36 exposure film into a camera slows us down, makes us think and feel! Literally. We get to feel the roll of film that we are going to turn into our images.
Next, there's the sense of anticipation as we wait for our film to get developed. It's like the excitement we feel of unwrapping presents on Christmas morning. Will the shots turn out as we hoped, or will they surprise us in unexpected ways? When we get a successful shot, we get a feeling of elation. Even when there are imperfections caused by miscalculations, each flawed image holds a lesson, and the promise of growth in our photographic journey.
It's an experience starkly contrasting the digital images stored on our phones and computers. Film forces us to slow down, think and savor the patience that results in gratification.
