In The Frame: Film Photographer Henry Giddens
My name is Henry Giddens. I live in Austin TX, and I love shooting film. My passion is skateboarding, that's where the majority of my photos come from. The best people in my live, and the coolest places I've been are because of skateboarding. I capture these people and places and all the activities that come along with film photography.
What attracts you to photographing with film? The suspense! Shooting multiple rolls not knowing if they will come out like you really want. And then you get the rolls back, and you see photos you don't even remember shooting. It's always a beautiful surprise.
What type of gear/film do you tend to gravitate to as of this writing? Minolta 7x, Canon telmax point and shoot
Tell us about the work you're submitting. These photos are some that I totally forgot I shot, that came out better than expected. I like to think that there is no "right" way to shoot a photo. Your camera is your canvas and as an artist you can do and use it however the hell you want to.
