My 2011 in Analogue: Film Not Dead

Yeah, I know my title's not original, but who cares right? We are all here reading this article because of one single reason: to keep the spirit of film alive. Let me show you how I did it for 2011.

I love traveling as much as I love shooting in film. I enjoy shooting in film as much as I enjoy drinking beer. Here’s my formula how I kept the spirit of film alive: travel + film + beer!

This was one of my first shots with Tatiana, my Spinner 360. I was a bit hesitant to do this panning shot but I wouldn’t achieve this result had I not tried. Experiment is the key to wasted films!

We were stranded at the port of Sabang on our way to Puerto Princesa Underground River. Since waves are three times my height and the boatmen don’t allow no one to sail, I ended up shooting at the port. Boo!
