first encounters with 35mm

As you should (probably) know, I’m really into photography. And recently, I’ve been trying to get into film photography.

I inherited a couple film cameras from my boyfriend’s mom about a year ago, and I’ve been experimenting with them ever since. The Pentax most intrigued me, especially since its entirely manual, but I found it a bit too difficult to use as a complete beginner. As a result, I decided to focus more heavily on the Canon EOS film camera: a bit more modern, so a bit easier to handle.

I also decided to start out with black and white film, so that I didn’t have to worry about getting the color composition right just yet. So I started out with Kodak Porta 400 ISO black & white negative film.
