Film is funny this way: photographers who spent years and years burning film, after the digital jump, either can’t stand the thought of film anymore or still use it once in a while. And then there are the digital era photographers that never tired anything film related… Once in a while, in conversations, I come across this latter kind and, surprisingly or not, many want to give it a try, if for nothing else, to at least bury the subject and never have to think about film again.
But, unlike digital media, the variety of camera types and different film is so big that confusion reigns.

increase the confusion provide a little help, on this episode we have as guest Rob Nunn to talk about different cameras and some of their characteristics, as well as different film stocks. We even approach (slightly) film developing at home (in my opinion, if you’re going to try shooting film, you will lose much of the experience if you don’t try to develop it at home).
As always, we appreciate your feedback. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send them our way.
Enjoy the show…
