One of the main arguments I hear for digital photography is the instant gratification you get. You go shooting and worse case scenario is that you have to wait till you get home and process your images on a computer. Or even better, you send it over to your iPhone through WiFi and throw some VSCO and Instagram filters on it. And for the longest time, that's why I did shoot with digital. The wait for film was too unbearable and I wanted to see my images now.

I shoot almost entirely film nowadays and the wait to see my images has really been a blessing in disguise. It's helped me to focus on shooting when I'm shooting and not have to worry about if I got the exposure right or got the shot in focus. It honestly helps to know I won't see the pictures for maybe even a few months so I don't stress about the pictures I may have missed and just look out for the ones I want to take. Okay rant over.

I took these back in December and finally sent it over to Indie Film Lab (who is literally the best lab in the world so give them a try) and just got them back this week.

These pictures were taken with a Rolleiflex 6003 SRC 1000 and Rollei Planar 80mm f2.8.
