mexico in film :)

Film is one of those nostalgic things for me. I just love the process of it! Finding the “right” shot, loading the film, the smell of the film, framing the photo just right and then hitting the shutter….nothing instant. I just love it. It brings me back to the non iphone, non instant days that sometimes make me go crazy! :) Or maybe that’s just me…..

The current age of digital convinced me to throw my film cameras into the depths of my closet to collect dust. And then I went to the Jose Villa workshop. Something happened for me there…..and it was magical! :) I watched Jose shoot and it all came rushing back to me…..I fell in love all over again. Although there was a LARGE part of me that was kicking myself for not brining MY film cameras to Mexico, but I was able to get my hands on a gorgeous Hasselblad and it just sang to me every frame that I took! My only regret is that I would have had one for the entire trip! :)
