Shooting with film never crossed my mind when I entered into the realm of digital photography. I didn't know film photography still existed. Digital was the way to go and that's all I focused on, until I began rubbing elbows with other street photographers. They all began with digital photography, then somewhere in time film captured their hearts. As it has mine. What peaked my interest were the blogs about using film in street photography. The mystery of shooting film is one of the highlights blogged about. Meaning, when you shoot with film you don't have an LCD screen to view an image after made with a DSLR camera. With film, you see nothing and you must wait to have it developed before you see the end result.
Wanting to give shooting film a go, I put the word out in social media that I was looking to buy a film camera off of anyone who wasn't using theres. A friend of mine responded by giving me for free a Canon EOS RebelG that he doesn't use now. This film camera is a good one. I'm forever grateful for my friend helping start out with shooting film.
From time to time I post on my website photos made with film. My preference is Kodak Portra 400. I've dabbled a little with black and white film, but I love color. After you read this take a moment to view the photos in the Film gallery.
