Dear Film, I like you. / by Jessica Peterson

I have been reacquainting myself with film again.  I don't think I was aware of how beautiful film really was.  For the past month I have been carrying my old Nikon FM 10 (my first camera) around with me with an old roll of Kodak Portra 400 VC (my favorite).  I wanted to have it for when the time was right.  I found myself shooting when the light was hitting someone just right and I wanted to make sure I had it for myself.  I am really happy I have given film a second chance, there really is something special about it, the tiny imperfections from the dust spots and negative scratches to the grain from pushing too far.
Film feels more precious, I was only shooting one shot of each frame so I wanted to make sure it was a nice one.
