Now and then I ask myself whether I am a “digital” photographer who just sometimes likes the world in front of his eyes to be interpreted by photographic film, or whether I am a “film” shooter who occasionally prefers the simplicity and convenience of his digital camera.
When Lili and I arrived at our first shooting spot, I might have got an answer – at least for that day. As usual I wanted to check out the light with some digital test shots, but when I took my camera I realized that I had not a single SD card with me. Five different cameras and about a dozen film rolls, but not a single data storage medium. Interestingly, I wasn’t so much annoyed that I couldn’t take digitals, but more that I carried a heavy and completely useless camera with me during this hot summer day.
Anyway, we had a great afternoon. Lili is not only a pleasant and beautiful model, but also a nice and intelligent young woman who gave me some very interesting insights into her work on and behind the stage at the theater.
