In January 2012 Kodak announced that it was filing for bankruptcy protection, a company with a 133 year history in photography was going out of business. So film is finally dead? I don't think that could be further from the truth. Over the past few months I have been scanning all of my dad's old 35mm slides that he took of us as kids (see my article here) and during this process I have grown to really love the look, feel and quality of film. So much so in fact that I have recently bought a 35mm cameras! Using this cameras has done several things for me. It's made me passionate about photography again, it's taught me a lot about photography, it's changed my view on digital photography in a way I didn't think it would and it's confirmed to me that film is far, far from dead but actually a quietly thriving area of photography.
