Me: I want to start shooting more shots just of our real daily life. Not posed, composed, not only when the light is right, not only when the moment is perfect, just the realities of it all.
Me: But I worry that because these photos won’t be as “good” or as “pretty,” they won’t make facebook, flickr, the wall, the frame, and so they may be forgotten. How should I curate them to make sure I look back at these photos years from now and not just the ones I really worked at or liked? Or should it not be a forced thing, to have to look at them? I just really want to remember all those details, not just the pretty ones, via photos. And is it worth the cost then?
Him: Well, why does it have to be shot on film?
I suppose the answer to that lies in the fact that I never even considered this would be a digital project. Film was the assumed media and digital never occurred to me. Hmmm…
Also, please read this great post by my younger sister, a photojournalism student at UMass. It is very near and dear to my heart.
