For many of us photographers, we started off photographing on film and film cameras and I like to think that's the best way to learn this craft. You begin to see how the the emoltion reacts to light and how your method of wet processing and printing changes the effects and quality of the images by the slitest change of the temperature of the water and chemicals to how much you adgitate. At first your images will be terrible but as you keep at it, you will begin to home the craft.
About a year ago I switch over and started shooting fully digital but the process and the mind set I have when create a photograph hasn't changed. When I photograph I always think in a ways of film, So that when I'm processing my images I can get the most natural quality in my images. I had alittle fun with these images and I fell in love with the crazy colors all over again. These are what I call digital film and I know that I went alittle over board with the film emulation but I'm in love with the color.
Enjoy life and keep moving forward.
