I'm very happy seeing my photograph from Spiddal, Co. Galway published in the French weekly magazine Courrier International (issue #1431, April 5th). It is a double page opening of the 36 pages dedicated to Ireland.
I exposed my first ever roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 at the Iverk Show in Piltown, Co. Kilkenny on 26th August 2017. It took almost two months before I could see the results. I must say that I am really pleased.
I don't really want to be a part of film vs. digital discussion. I will continue shooting digital but every so often I will expose a roll of Tri-X or Portra when I feel like doing so.
Some of the reasons why I've decided to try shooting film.
Nostalgia - I wanted to take photographs as a kid, but I could rarely afford buying and developing the film. Nowadays I can 'waste' money the way I want to :-)
A need of slowing down and thinking more before pressing the shutter.
Sometimes it is fun to do something without an instant gratification.
Somehow it feels different. It helps me getting closer and more personal to the people I photograph.
