This was the first roll of film that I shot in Prague and I am so happy with how it turned out. I don’t want to spoil the video for you if you haven’t watched yet, but let’s just say the Bridges & Boats theme expands a bit as the day progresses. I mention at the end of the video how breaking my arm forced me to slow down with the camera. Before the injury when Lou and I would shoot these videos more often than we’d like to admit the actual shooting of the film wasn’t the focus. Instead the composition of the video took priority. Sometimes there would be moments where I would think there was a photo I’d like to take and then Lou would film me walking over and as I pulled up the camera, I would realize that the shot wasn’t actually something I liked or thought worthwhile enough to capture. But knowing that he was already rolling (and we shoot RAW so file size is always an issue not only for storage but our memory cards too!), I would just take the shot. So long story short, on this roll we had to change our workflow – instead in almost all of the photographs, I would go compose my shot, figure out my settings, and then Lou would start rolling and I would go take the photograph. Not only did I feel way less rushed and like I was composing better, but I also had way more FUN! It felt like I was actually taking the time to see the world around me and choose the scenes that were most interesting to me. Film photography is just a hobby of mine, but shooting on this trip to Prague made me realize how it can actually help me remember to slow down and focus on the important things instead of just trying to complete the task at hand.
