Belle Lumière – A Community for Film Photography Lovers

Film photography is something I’m dying to get into, but have yet to try it out. The beauty and benefits in being capable to shoot with only a roll of film and no delete button are like no other.

The closest I’ve ever come to shooting film was with disposable cameras from the corner store as a teenager. Those old 35mm cameras produced intense anticipation as you waited to be able to pick up your photos from the store after being developed. There was no digital way to preview the images. You couldn’t delete the mishaps. And I got a lot of overexposed, crummy images, and a handful of keepers.

Interview with Photography Community 30 Minutes in the Life

In the life of a photographer, whose art is created in tiny fractions of a second, thirty minutes is a sustained thought. Thirty minutes, the length of a child’s ballet class, a quick sauce’s simmer, a commute, is long enough to witness change and short enough to be over before you know it.
