Cassie Cook Photography-Memphis TN-film photography

A couple years ago, a Canon T50  film camera found it's way from a thrift store in Jackson, MS all the way up to Memphis TN and right into my hands. At the time, I didn't know where this little camera would lead me, the adventures we'd find, or that it would be the window to a whole new world of photography that I had yet to discover.  At the time, I would use my roll of film, and then send it off for developing and then wait for my photos to be sent back to me. It was a fun little waiting game.

Fast forward to just a couple months ago, when I began to crave more. 

As a photographer, there's always more. There's always room for improvement and expansion, and although I desired that for my business, I craved something for myself. Something to keep me grounded and bring me back to what inspired me to pick up a camera in the first place. It fascinates me how a little device can capture a split second, a whole moment, with the click of the shutter. I wanted to see the process, from beginning to end, what it takes for each image to become what it is. 

So I added developing a roll of my own film to my 2016 bucket list, and by March I got to cross it off. It was such an incredible feeling getting the chance to watch my photos go through each stage, and what all it takes to turn a roll of film into photographs. It's safe to say, that after that first time developing, I was in love. In love with the process, the smell of the chemicals, the anticipation when you're about to take the first look at your film. I fell in love with the imperfections. Because those imperfections I encounter and embrace in my film photography remind me that photographs don't have to be "perfect" to be works of art.
It's now a part of me, and I can't wait to continue this plunge into film photography.
