Film has been making a big come back within the past year. I love photographing with film because of the way it looks and feels. Although I thoroughly enjoy shooting with film, the return time could take hours or even days to develop, scan, and print. Which is why digital photography is so much more reliable and quicker.
Since I love the look of film, I enjoy editing my digital photographs to look like they were taken with a film camera instead of a digital one. I've been noticing on Instagram that I'm not the only one that does this. Below are 2 other examples I found on Instagram of digital images edited to look like film.
Light leaks are normally unwanted anomalies that happen when film gets partially exposed to outside light. Because Digital cameras use a digital sensor instead of light sensitive materials, light leaks do not happen. But they are a commonly associated with film and are known to be quite beautiful when done correctly. People, including myself, like to edit photographs to look like film to become different from the rest and adds an artistic element to our photography. It has become an big trend since 2015 when film began making it's come-back. Now instead of sending your film away for days to get developed and hoping it came out correctly, beautiful film edits are in reach within minutes for digital images.
