There are a variety of filters and presets on the market to help us get back that film look. Some of them are really quite amazing at turning our digital images into film like versions.
It’s particularly difficult to get a sense of digital vs film when squinting at images on our mobile devices. But on a big screen or better yet, on prints, film just feels alive.
These images won’t win any awards. They are just a bunch of photographs from a recent roll of film.
But getting back a roll and seeing them all brings back a bunch of memories from the past week — my son’s little league game when he pitched for the first time, a meal with the family, a walk by myself, a morning hike with our dog, and a cortado at the local cafe. Simple pleasures.
At the rate of digital improvement, I’m not sure how long we will have access to film and high quality photo labs.
But I do hope film lasts forever.
