Film Cameras: The Original Instagram

We recently rediscovered the "original" Instagram filter: 35mm film.

Back in college Erin and I took a film photography class and loved learning the film development and printing process first hand. Sure it was a ton of extra work, but a lot of fun too.

Over the past several weeks we've pulled out our old Pentax cameras again and started snapping away before summer is all but gone.
It's crazy how much film cameras required us to plan every aspect of a shot before we snapped the shutter open. Below are some favorites from our first reels.
One of the hardest parts of shooting with film is waiting to see how the photos will turn out. But when the wait is over, we fell in love how each photo has a life of its own -- and we didn't even have to add a filter.
