Over the last couple years I’ve found myself going back to the simplicity of shooting film, despite having the most modern digital cameras. The constraints of film slowed me down and allowed me to truly focus on my subject without being distracted by my preview screen.
Aim, focus, shoot. (Advance film, repeat.)
It’s simple really. You’re focused on the moment, not your gadget.
It was on this premise that Dan Rubin (@danrubin) and I connected. We shared similar experiences and both desired to find that same flow with our DSLRs. Thus some imaginary digital constraints and Neue Film were born.
Your mileage may vary, but visit the site and give the process a try. We’re eager to know what you think.
Credit where credit is due: Dan is really the mastermind behind the process. He was implementing many of the constraints prior to us discussing anything. I just consider myself lucky to have tagged along when I did :)
