Why apply a film mentality to digital photography? | Levi Bettwieser | TEDxBoise

vor 2 Jahren

Personal photography has dramatically changed even over the past 15 years. Unhindered access to image creation, combined with instant viewing, allows us to curate our personal histories in a whole new—yet not necessarily better—way. And when our visual history lives primarily on computers and phones, we lose an important tangible connection to our past. In this talk (featuring samples from rescued images), Levi shares ways to create more meaningful images even in the digital age, preserving a more genuine snapshot of our history.

Levi is a founder of and technician for The Rescued Film Project. As such, he is often the first person to see the images captures on lost, orphaned rolls of film. Levi enjoys taking photos with one of his 15 antique film cameras and works to debunk the popular notion that film photography is more difficult than digital.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
