Sometimes, it’s good to get back to your roots. Remember what brought you to an art form in the first place.

This past weekend, I had a lot of time to think about just that. And as much as I appreciate the ease of creating images digitally, I do often miss the smell of the darkroom, the sight of prints drying on the rack and the feeling you get when something comes out just right– the first time, or after hours after hour, perfecting a skill.

A lot of that gets lost, without the use of film. I know that there are other skills and standards with digital work, but it’s just different.

In a good way.
