Paulstw Posted December 10, 2013 Share Posted December 10, 2013 I used to use old film cameras as a part of being born in the 70's. It's all I knew growing up. You had 24 pics, and you put the film into Klick Photopoint and 3-4 days later you had some memories. Some of which my mother still has in the loft. I have been looking up older photographers of film and sense a real magic in their work. It's a magic that I feel has been left behind in digital. People are too quick to snap away at anything these days. I have been guilty of it. I then look at my pics and wonder why they are weak. I want to know more. I want to buy a film camera, because all I hear is success stories from people who started out on digital and bought an 35mm SLR and it turned their world around. I was looking at buying a Canon AE-1 Program. I want to strictly shoot B&W to begin with. With my current set up I'm averaging that I use ISO400 more often than anything, so I think using the 400 speed film would be a good start as it's pretty dull these days. I feel I'm taking digital for granted. I'm snapping for the sake of it, and I'd love to try film so do you think this is a good starting point? Appreciate the advice.
