My Month of Film has come to an end. I have to say that this was probably the most liberating month of shooting that I have had in years! No worries about anything digital except for scanning the negatives into the computer and editing my favorite images. I only used a few different films, Fuji Acros 100, Ilford FP4+,  and Ilford Delta 100 all developed in Ilford Ilfotec-DDX.

The main thing I learned from this experiment was to take my time and think about what I was shooting. I made a point to look at shadows and light and also composition. To me it’s a better way to shoot instead of firing away with a digital camera. If you shoot enough pictures, you’ll get a good one, right? Having only 24 or 36 exposures will automatically make you slow down. The big question is would I give up shooting digital altogether? I don’t think so but I hope to carry over the way I shoot film into shooting digital. To me there is no reason to take 50 pictures of the same thing just to get a decent shot.

So there you have it. If you have the chance to shoot film, do it! It’s so much fun and every time you develop a roll of film, it’s like Christmas seeing what comes out of the developing tank. Enjoy my slideshow with my most favorite images I took throughout the month.
