Photography

After digging up my mom’s old Nikon FE camera and receiving my shipment of film stock, I haphazardly loaded a roll of that 800-speed Fujifilm film into the camera and started shooting. (I was going to make a terrible joke about developing an interest in 35-mm photography, but I decided against it.)

I won’t claim that analog photography results in higher quality pictures than digital photography, but I attest that the experience is better. Modern photography is ubiquitous but careless—snapping a pic on an iPhone takes less than a second. Analog photography encourages patience, intention, and economy, virtues that modern technology has abandoned.

I invite you to take a look at some of my favorite pictures!
