Bert on shooting film:
"In my own experience in shooting film for more than 30 years I’ve always enjoyed the slower pace of shooting with film, being more deliberate and serious about the shots I take. Knowing I’m limited, only getting 36 photos on a 35mm roll it forces me to think about each shot. I slow down and compose my images more carefully. There’s also the excitement that I get when I first see my slides after waiting for the film. And I don’t get that feeling when I’m downloading images from my digital camera or memory-card."
All photographs shot with a Leica M6 or Leica R3, Elmarit 28mm lens, and Kodachrome 25.
