The other day I read this blog post (and then the comments section) about a new digital camera that doesn't have a preview screen...for the bargain price of $20,000. The opinions about it were (of course) all over the map, but the part that interested me most was the idea that back when we used film, we had to focus on the next photo we were going to take instead of looking back at the one we had just taken.
Smart. I hadn't really thought of it that way.
Partly thanks to the blog post, but mostly thanks to Tara's amazing film photography, I got out my film camera* and started snapping (admittedly glancing down to see what I had just shot out of a habit a few times). I got my photos developed Wednesday and was excited to see that some had turned out even better than I'd hoped** (of course, some were terrible too).
I'm considering shooting one full roll of film over the month of October. A photo or so a day. It's sort of the opposite of the "wait for it" concept or the "crop it" concept or the "timercam" concept and it might be fun to switch things up like that.
And don't worry guys, I haven't forgotten about my business story. I am currently writing part nine and editing part eight. I have already realized I have left so much out (this business has been a lot of years in the making) so that's going to be pretty intense to rework. I plan to share a small business story post every other weekday throughout the month of October.
Thank you so much for following along and your comments have been TOPS this week. Happy Friday! Ellerie and I are off to the zoo (again!)!
