-for the love of film- by fangedfem -for the love of film- by fangedfem
Another simple concept along the same vein as "Love is a mixed tape" found here: [link] .

While I love film and developing and printing, it was my first major when I went to college many years ago, I am in no way saying it is better than digital. Its a process all its own and while I love my digital camera, hell- it took this picture, I love all my film cameras and home darkroom even more as it is how I first started and one should never forget their roots so to speak. But again, please no debates over film and digital as I hate when people say film is better and vice versa - that is stupid. This is merely my way of expressing a medium I love =)

Taken with a Nikon D70 using a paper background and a hand held construction light to get the hard shadow I wanted. (helped by my dearest) I cannot afford any light kits so I make due and while the construction lights get hot, they are a great inexpensive alternative while saving to buy a real light kit one day =) The film was bent into the heart shape and glued. The camera in the shot is one of my older 35mms, a Canon AE-1. Otherwise it was rather simple but it came out just like I wanted it to.

Thank you :heart:

I love it... but I hope you didn't ruin a perfectly good roll of film by exposing it to the light... O.o ((not to sound snarky))

Film, the original awesome. When me and my boyfriend started dating he got really into film and then kind of lots his love for it, but nothing beats that feeling of waiting for your pictures too develop then looking at them afterwards. I wish he had atleast kept one camera I bought one at the beginning of winter at a flea market cant wait to start using it once the weather gets nice again. I have a Nikon SLR digital and no matter how hard you try nothing can duplicate the effect of a film photo quite as good as the real thing!! I hope all those hipsters out there help film make a comeback and not die out.

I totally agree with you about darkroom, I have a bunch of prints that you might be interested to look at.

I have a collection of about 6 cameras, only two of those being digital, and that's not including my pinhole camera either.
I live in the darkroom.

I'm liking this not just for the photo, but for the description as well :)
