Folk on Film x Against the Grain ~ Calin

Photographer: @calinshootsfilm

Local break: Rainbow Bay

1. What got you into film photography? 

I really enjoy the slowed down approach towards the art. It really makes me think about what I want to capture, especially in the surf. Every frame on film is precious, I wait for the really good moments instead of sitting there with my finger on trigger taking thousands of photos.

I also love the challenge! I find digital photography too easy, cameras are so advanced these days that it took the fun out of photography for me. Little mistakes like missing a shot or something slightly out of focus makes me improve more each time, I feel digital takes all of that away. Film is still so raw and I love that!"

2. What comes to mind when you hear Surfolk?

Surfolk to me is a lifestyle and community bringing likeminded people together to create and enjoy similar interests.
