2016 was a big year for film. I feel like it finally came back for real. I saw more young people shooting film and I saw more people expressing interest in film. I even donated a few point and shoots to friends in need of the aesthetic. 2016 was also the year I jumped into shooting more with my Hasselblad 500cm. Big deal, right? I've been using it a lot to work on some projects I'm not going to divulge quite yet, but there's some things in the works and I'm excited about them. I somehow broke every point-and-shoot I have touched recently, but the good folks at Southeastern Camera in Wilmington are always down to help me out and their East Coast Film Lab does a great job getting stuff developed and scanned. Got a few things developed and scanned at Ball Photo in Asheville too. I guess 2017 will be the year of name dropping and shout outs. So yeah, film is not dead. Not at all. Enjoy these photos. Or don't. You have that option.
