Having an opinion. That is valuable.
I recently inherited an old olympus 35RC. An automatic, circa 1970. It is light, attractive and simple. The first roll I shot produced images that were so different from digital. The process of shooting with caution, knowing that I have a limited number of frames, and with suspense, not knowing the results immediately, is very satisfying. Picking up the developed film and accepting whatever I produced, without spending time on digital alterations, is a relief.
It is literally transforming.
