My son decided it would be fun to try and shoot some pictures with film. *gasp* Do you remember the limitations? the expense? But, sometimes in limitations there is freedom. I'm not sure where it is here yet...ha!...but it's forcing him to really think about exposure and composition. So far there are no pictures developed. He is shooting really old film which of course will be corrupted to some degree, but he thought it better than putting money into something that he may not stick with. The first film was so old it was completely green and he wasn't charged for the developing. He just bought some new film so hopefully he'll have some success. Or, he will find out that the camera is malfunctioning. Time will tell.
This is my in-laws old 35 mm camera. My first 35mm is broken and my second was either lost or stolen on our honeymoon. That is what forced me to begin to shoot digitally. Maybe not such a bad thing. However, I have to say that touching and handling the film while showing him how to load it was a treat!!! It brought back memories and good feelings. It's been 10 years since I've shot film. How about you? How long? Do you miss it at all?
