Ireland on Film

I started my photography by shooting film before I was a teenager.  The analog process continues to this day because there's something about its execution, its developments, and its aesthetic that captures the hearts of thousands of people across the globe.  My affinity for film photography remains despite my heavily digital workflow.  I even keep an "emergency" film camera in my car at all times.

I received a plastic camera for Christmas, a Holga 120N. It's beautifully simple to use and takes a lot of the thinking and over-thinking out of photography. It reduces the photographer to pure artist creating art: observe, aim, capture. Of course, because of its lack of bells and whistles, exposures might not quite be what you expected. I'm told to expect light leaks and the "focusing" is really...
