That Old Film Camera
Although film is a dying form of photography, my 35mm film camera is a staple in my camera bag. Perhaps you can get the same type of photo with the “inkwell” effect in Instagram, but there lies something unique in a 35mm black and white photo. With only so many shots on a roll, much more attention is paid to framing, set up, and lighting when taking a shot with film. I only bust this camera out at the most opportune times, making these some of my most favorite photos every trip. Below, here are some shots from Asia with the team in South Korea, and around Sapporo, Japan.Henrik Harlaut at Gyeongbokgung Palace
