6 Things to Love About the F6

The F6 Project is all about connecting like-minded photographers around the world interested in pursuing “the value of unique pictures” with the best 35mm film camera ever made. Even though we’re not exactly like minded, we share a common passion, and can benefit from sharing thoughts and ideas about this art form we’ve come to love so much; film photography.

Sometimes an image is less about the artistic merits of the frame and more about the memory it triggers.

Because of that, during this Thanksgiving weekend here in the U.S. it seems appropriate to thank Khanh Hmoong and Pankha Nguyen of shootingfilm.net (no longer reachable for some reason) for the inspiration of the following. Beginning today we’re trying a new idea designed to build deeper connections with F6 shooters around the world. Anyone (and we mean ANYONE) shooting film through the F6 to send us 6 reasons, and 6 of your favorite F6-created images to share WHY – despite the proliferation of digital camera options available – you’ve chosen instead to use this fabulous camera.

Please tell us a little about yourself, and include a link to your web site and blog. We’re really hoping this exercise continues to build deeper connections amongst the F6 community around the world. All entries should be submitted by e-mail and we’ll publish them on the blog as soon as possible.
