Thought I would try something new by taking a picture of my process/set up before shooting a particular shot. I have not been doing this often since I usually like to shoot through the viewfinder but whenever I get the chance I will be posting on here.
Here are just a few examples:
One of the biggest downsides of shooting film is the time it takes to complete a roll and get it developed. This roll took almost a month to complete but the results definitely made it worth it.
Downtown Long Beach: I had to wait about an hour to submit in some plans to City Hall in Long Beach so I used that time to explore the vicinity.
I wanted to try something new since I have recently gotten into film photography. Here are the shots I took on my Nikon F3T that ended up being pretty good. Surprisingly, I was able to get some great shots just on my second roll of film. Be sure to check out my first experimental roll post, with that being said – Film Roll #2 Little Tokyo, Los Angeles
I figured the best way to learn film photography was to just go out and shoot. I didn’t care about getting good shots but focused on playing around with the controls and see what works or don’t work. Here are the shots I took with my very first film roll. I did not expect much at all but I was surprised at how good some of the images came out. With my second roll I was able to get a lot more usable and better photos which can be seen here (will update when the post is up). My advice to anyone starting to learn film I think the best way is to experiment with your first roll. It’s like with any technology you mess around with the device and see what it can/can’t do and move on from there. With film it will be a little harder because you don’t know how it will come out until you process them (usually 1-5 days depending on the place).
