Summertime in Berlin with Felix Machleid
We love these photos of Berlin in the summertime, shot by Felix Machleid, a German student + photographer–he took some time out of his busy schedule to tell us about his process and the feelings analogue photography conveys.
What camera do you use?
I use a Minolta X-700. A few years ago I found the camera in my parents closet who then gave it to me as a present for my birthday.
What film do you use?
My favourite film at the moment is Fuji Superia 200 but I also like to shoot with cheap film from the drugstore.
Why shoot film?
I admire the distinctive look and quality of film. Before shooting film I often tried to imitate the particular tone and vintage softness of film in digital photography but quickly realised that no production filter can duplicate the unique look of film. To me analogue photography is more personal, honest and somehow dreamlike.
Compared to digital photography it just conveys more feeling, I think.
