A couple of weeks ago I got this overwhelming desire to find a 35mm film camera. I looked on craigslist and found a listing for someone selling one for $50. When I emailed her she told me that she hadn't gotten any response so she donated it to the local goodwill. Right after work that day I headed to Goodwill and somehow it was sitting in a big pile of other abandoned electronics in a glass case. I got it for $20 and took it home and began playing.
I haven't used a film camera since college so I was a little rusty and I definitely checked the back of the camera more than once to see an image that was not actually there. Its all about surprise when shooting with film and I was pretty sure that all of the pictures would come out completely white or completely back. To my very happy surprise most of them came out! And, I completely and totally adore them. They have such a great silky and warm quality to them. This is something I sometimes spend a lot of time trying to achieve in photo shop with my digital photos.
Do you shoot with film? What has your experience been like?
