Since discovering digital photography well into my thirties, I’ve wondered why some luddites would still work with film.

But now I know. I get it!

There’s something magical about the feel of the shutter click and manually winding on the film. After the first few shots I looked at the back of the camera to inspect the image. But now I’m enjoying not knowing.

Things that bother me in a digital image I now welcome; I like the grain and the slight loss of crispness when shooting film.

Although, I’ve not gone completely manual. I’m using an OM10 without the manual shutter dial – essentially shooting in aperture priority. For purists, I suspect this is still cheating!
