Years ago, my dear friend Gretchen and I got together to experiment with one of those cooler-than-thou plastic cameras. The results looked as though she was the ill-fated star in some sort of horror film, but don’t worry, no Gretchens were harmed in the shooting of these images.
This was the first time I ever tried shooting 35mm in a 120 camera, and I fell in love with the sprocket hole aesthetic. It is a perfect example of one of the reasons that digital cameras (as cool as they are) will never stand a chance at replacing film cameras as my true love. The possibilities of what you can make film cameras do, with no regard for whether or not the designer had that in mind when they thought it up, is almost endless.
Anyone out there want to tell me about cool experiments they’ve done with film?
