Today I'm going to tell you why I chose the analogue format before digital format in photography.
The price: Let's face it, film cameras that are plastics are cheaper than digital cameras =P I do understand the developing cost might be expensive but..read on
The thrill: Not seeing what you took and not knowing how it turns out until you develop the films makes me anxious and excited to see the end result! There's no delete or undo button on film cameras and that's why making beautiful photos is a challenge to me.
The effect: Cross process slide films makes wonderful effects that photoshop cannot achieve. It is natural and I don't even need to edit the photos. (I'm lazy when it comes to editing photos) Certain photos can only be achieve with certain cameras and many photo editing softwares actually copy the real effect from the analogue cameras.
The size: Most of my film cameras are compact and light. I love bringing them around because they are light and small! One of the rule of lomography is to take your cameras everywhere you go whether day or night.
Speed: I love analogue cameras because they are small and fast! People would not be awkward even if you do click on the shutter. They thought I'm carrying a toy most of the time. I love street photography so it's ideal for me!
