Film photography tips for beginners
One of the best things about film photography is that it forces you to slow down and take your time with each shot. Here are some tips on how to get started:
- film cameras can be a little heavier, but they’re also smaller and more portable than digital ones.
- find a subject you like and experiment with framing, lighting, composition, and depth of field until you feel confident enough to shoot on your own.
- take photos in natural light whenever possible; if not, use an external flash or attach one of those mini LED lights (like the kind used for camping)to the top of your camera lens using gaffer tape or another adhesive material, etc.
