When was the last time you went on a photo walk, with no intentions other than simply photographing anything interesting you came across and enjoying some time doing what you love? This great video explores the idea of grabbing a film camera and heading on a casual photo walk.
Coming to you from Samuel Elkins, this awesome video follows him as he shoots some medium format film on a photo walk around his Los Angeles neighborhood. I think this sort of exercise can be a great way to get back in touch with why you fell in love with photography in the first place. First, you're free of any sort of pressure tied to what you produce for money, making it easier to just focus on what you want to shoot. Second, I think shooting with limited film frees you from worrying about editing the images when you get home or from taking dozens of shots. The simplicity of it causes you to slow down, relax, and enjoy simply finding subjects you find fascinating or interesting play between light and shadows. It's definitely worth trying out for yourself. Check out the video above to see what the experience is like.
