Grainy Day Fun
by Bonnie Tate
I was surprised how much I enjoyed shooting film with my students at Gulf Coast State College a couple weeks ago. I enjoyed, probably more than them, waiting a week for the negatives to arrive in the mail and wondering what, if anything, would come from the roll of Fugi expiration 2008. A part of me misses the imperfection of film photography, the unexpected shots that are either better or worse than imagined. Even the soft film grain visible after the scans had a lovely appeal. And the double exposures, what a treat!
