Film is not dead - Norfolk

Since I am an autodidact who never really studied photography in a classroom, it's a treat for me to go on a workshop every once in a while and learn from the best people in the business.

This year I've been quite a good student, due to the fact that I'm very keen on learning to shoot on good old-fashioned medium format film. Finally a couple of weeks ago I flew to England for a long awaited workshop by Jonathan Canlas. Jonathan wrote a book, called Film is not dead and has been traveling the world for a while now, teaching photographers the craft and beauty of shooting on film. He hardly ever makes it to Europe, so I jumped right at my seat for the workshop in Norfolk, England. Having read all of his books, I was quite curious on how FIND could make a difference. And there are no words to express how much it did. Coming home I felt like crying (cause it was over) and laughing (for being so blessed to have had the chance to go and do it) at the same time. What FIND is, can only be described as "an experience" - one that, if you're interested in film photography and you get a chance to make it, I wouldn't dare you to pass upon. Hell, I would go a second time if I could! This is just a few impressions of my time in England and those talented peeps I was lucky to spend it with. I know it might sound a little creepy maybe, but this week has changed not only my photographic journey but also my life - for the better. Those memories, those people and you, Mr. Canlas, are very close to my heart.
