WHY SHOOT FILM ?
MunKeat is a person who appreciate things from the past. With the advancement of digital era, it's sad to see cameras being replaced as frequent as mobile phones where each manufacturer trying to out do each other by coming out with more megapixels and lightning fast auto-focus system. The camera is getting more and more complex each day boasting loads of features which we do not really need.
Shooting films brings us back to the pure simplicity of photography.
The great thing about film cameras (especially the older ones) is the simplicity of using it. His all time favorite Leica M3, a 55yrs old camera is still working flawlessly like it was only a few years old ! All it has is just a shutter speed dial and an aperture ring. At that level of simplicity, it forces one to learn, where basic and fundamentals are crucial.
