Intro to Film Photography, Part 1

This is Part 1 of an introduction to film photography! We'll learn about the differences between film and digital photography. We won't take photos in this experience, but I'll take you through some of my own photos, show you how to pick different types of film, and then we can plan out the best location for Part 2 of this experience.

To explore this experience together, we can...: Think manual everything! We'll see buttons, and feel the weight of the camera. You'll feel the different metal camera fittings and also see how the different lighting and film affects your photos.
-: You'll see some of my photos, learn different camera settings and parts of the camera. You'll understand the difference between digital photography and film, and understand the patience that film photography takes!
-: You'll hopefully take away a new love of film photography and see how you might start to capture the right moment.
