Since all my work here is all digital I decided I would set my DSLR down and pick up my SLR Canon A-1 circa 1971 film camera and have a go for one weekend. All images are taken on generic Kodak 400 35mm film so I apologize if your eyes are not used to seeing my fully digital work =) Anyways, it was a refresher course in film in which I personally wanted to take on as a project to become a better photographer. I haven’t dealt with film since high school so never the less I was a little rusty when it came to loading good old 35mm rolls of film the old fashioned way. I’m so used to our trusty SanDisk CF cards we digital shooters have the luxury of using. The purpose for shooting film was to better train my eye and thought process when it came to taking a photograph. I believe less is more so the less exposures I shoot the better. Haven’t you ever heard the saying quality over quantity? When you shoot film your thought process and approach to each photograph is extremely different than that of a digital. You also have a higher margin of error if you don’t know exposure and camera settings properly in your head like most film people do. You don’t have the luxury of viewing the image instantly on your LCD so for many people shooting film professionally can be nerve racking if you don’t fully understand camera tech. In the end, I just wanted to have some fun and learn a few things or two =) Here are a few snap shots from my Canon A-1 Circa 1971 35mm with my 50mm FD f/1.4 SSC. I always enjoy the way film images feel when they come out of the camera. Its a whole different feel verses shooting digital.
