Analog Photography

At the age of 10, I learned photography using my dad's Yashica Film SLR. We set up a dark room in the school and even attempted at developing a few photos. I fell in love with the whole process! 

Though I click photos using a DSLR now, I find myself using the film SLR quite regularly. 

 

When one uses a film SLR they understand why it is called 'Making photos' and not just clicking photos. I feel that analog photography makes each photograph a cherished memory. The wait till you complete the roll and get it developed adds to the excitement.

 

Here are some of my recent experiments with film.
