"You have to slow down and think about what you are doing and make every frame count."
Everything I shoot is on film. For 35mm I use a Canon EOS 1VHS and a Canon EOS 500 with a 24-70 2.8L, a 16-35 2.8L and a 50 1.2L as well as my old faithful Olympus OM10 with a 50 1.8 and 28 2.8 and a crazy fisheye. For Medium Format I use a Mamiya 645 Pro TL with an 80 1.9 and a 35 3.5. I also have a polaroid 250 with a little flash. I prefer film because it captures a greater dynamic range, it looks better and I love the grain. I also love the discipline of shooting on film. You can't just shoot 1000 images and make 1 of them look good on a computer. You have to slow down and think about what you are doing and make every frame count. It also forces you to engage with the person or situation you are shooting instead of just firing off 1000's of test images and checking the monitor on the back of the camera until you get it right. My favourite 35mm and medium format film stocks are Fuji 400h, Portra 160 and Portra 400, Tri X Black and White and Ilford 400 HP5 and Delta 3200 when theres no light. Lately I have also been shooting with cinestill 800T tungsten film and have been really enjoying the results with that too.
