This last year and a half I’ve really slowed down on shooting film. A number of things factor into this but it’s mostly the cost. Back in March Fujifilm discontinued my favorite film, and I’ve been trying really hard to ration the film I do have because $40 for a pack of FP-3000b is INSANE and I absolutely refuse to spend even close to that for ten measly photos. I have a hearty stock in my refrigerator that I’m hoping to save for the future. I try to only use it on special occasions or when it feels absolutely necessary but there is one time I will always break out the film – vacation!
I didn’t shoot nearly as much film this year out west as I did on my first trip out there in 2014 but I did get some really lovely results with the few packs I did use. For each of these photos I took a nearly identical shot with my digital camera as well but there’s just something about the way film looks that captures the vibe of road trips so perfectly. I treasure these photos!
