Negative to Positives

Tonight I have been scanning in some old negatives from when I was in high school.  I was not much of a photographer back then, but I did like to take pictures.  I noticed that I did not take many pictures of the same thing at one time.  Digital allows you to take as many photos as you want, while film limited you a little more.  While I greatly enjoy not being limited to the number of photos, I think that film did make me slow down a little.  Slowing down to look at what is around you is a great way to make sure that you are not missing something.  Looking at different angles and taking time to compose the shot will make it more than just a snap shot.  I am going to set a goal of slowing down and putting a little more planning into each photograph.
