My Analogue Days: Photographing Food in Film

While some of my friends would be whipping out their digital cameras and/or iPhones out to take photos of their food and drinks, I would be wielding my trusty Nikon FE2 to immortalize delicious dishes in film.

I must confess that I am part of the population of Asians who like taking photos of their food. I shoot first, then eat after, much to the dismay of my friends who can’t wait to wolf down the delicious food before them. But, while some of those who share this hobby or practice with me would use their digital cameras or smartphones to take photos, I would do so with my trusty Nikon FE2 typically loaded with ISO 400 film.

I guess it’s one of my own ways to make my days a little bit more analogue. It’s easier and more convenient for people to just use their phones and Instagram away photos of their delicious lunches and dinners, but I am just not content with that. I actually prefer taking photos of food in film; they just look so much better and I don’t have to edit them anymore to make them appetizing. So, whether I simply eat out on my own, get invited in parties, or dine in a fancy restaurant with my family or friends, I always bring my Nikon FE2 and a bunch of ISO 400 films with me.

Of course, I don’t always get good photos, but those that do turn out nice can really be nice. Come and take a look:

You can find more of my food in film snaps in this album.

It’s these results that keep me shooting food in film with every chance I get. I hope you find them as nice and appetizing as I do!
