Film and Food

Added on by lea thompson.

I use digital SLRs for most of my work, but there is still nothing quite as satisfying as the 35 mm film experience. I love being physically involved in every aspect of the photo making process. Finding the subject, loading the film, listening to the shutter release, cranking the film to rewind, spooling the reel and developing the photos in the dark. It's an intuitive process, and in a world of glossy photo spreads, it's nice to see some imperfections. In the future, I'll experiment more with medium format cameras to get better depth of field and avoid that lens distortion, but I'd like to work more with the ideas and feelings people have in relationships with food.
