This is what I thought shooting film would be like. I would be like Rosie--playing at not knowing what might happen, but still seeing it all in the end. A momentary impairment to my vision but not real blindness.
And yes, shooting film did give me a different perspective. I was more deliberate with what I photographed, and I took more care to get one shot right than ten shots okay. It made me think over a lot of things too, whilst I waited for my roll of film to developed. About seeing, and not seeing, and what I take for granted. About immediacy and waiting and delayed gratification.
But overall shooting film made me more certain in one thing: I want to take photos that change perspectives and that show people what they might not have seen before.
