Initiation to film photography

film photographyAs I stated in a previous post, I got myself into a photography club to learn how to take better pictures with my awesome Nikon D3100 DSLR. Friday, the photo club proposed an initiation to film photography.

I attended it as I had great memories of the time when I first was introduced ten years ago to dark room printing with a friend who became a professional photographer since.

I have to say that this IS a lot of fun.

Processing, editing and printing your film photo is indeed a much more active process and operation than for digital pictures. You are standing up, walking between the various parts of your photo lab…

I think I may get a hold of the old film camera my dad and have some fun with it as I really would like to experiment this.

If like me you are interested in how to process your film photography, you might be willing to check out that great Instructables page.

  1. Yeah, film photography! The ultimate test to tell the difference between real photographers and those who just own an overpriced camera 🙂
    I’d love to take up film photography, but my dad’s silver camera is broken down…

  2. Ah, if it is broken you should fix it 🙂

    and it you can’t, there are potential great deals with second hand cameras. One of my friends in the photo club bought for 400€ a DSLR that would have costed thousands a decade ago…
