Film Makes Me Happy

Chicago, 2015

I've mentioned this before, but I like film photography. The not knowing if you really got the shot...the anticipation of waiting till your film is processed. Don't get me wrong, film makes me slow down and be more methodical about my images, but I still don't have that immediacy of seeing the image and knowing 100%, like with digital cameras.  

 

I also really like the square format of my medium format Hasselblad. Sometimes I think I was always meant to see things square. I’m happy when I look through the viewfinder, and it’s square, not rectangular like my DSLR. It’s a nice change of pace from my everyday view.

 

Anyway, this is a shot I took while I was recently in Chicago on a project. I took some time one morning to go hunting images and came back with this one. I found the repetition of the two buildings windows, paired with the curved lines of the center building and the reflections of each other inside of each other quite the visual stimulant.

 

Enjoy
