Film photography

Most film photography comes with a lack of immediacy, which adds to the experience of finally viewing the images. Film isn’t dead and is even experiencing something of a revival with new cameras and film emulsions cropping up. It’s a medium ripe for experimentation.

Is film photography hard?

Good photography isn’t easy, whether you’re using a film or digital camera, but it can certainly feel like there is more of a learning curve with film photography. The delay between when you take a photo and view it with film photography can make the learning process feel slower, but it can also make you slow down and be more considered.

Is film photography dying?

While it might not be the heyday of film photography, it hasn’t died out and many photographers still prefer film to digital. A range of films are still widely available and specialist film processing companies can easily be found online.
