So the obvious question in a world of digital photography - why would you want to get into shooting film? I've read quite a few blogs of other people diving into the world of film photography, with varying reasons. Some have just discovered their father's old camera hiding away, covered in dust, and fancied trying it out. For others, that's how they started in photography and are keen to keep it going.
For me, there were many reasons. Although I didn't find any of my relatives old camera lying about, I do have some vague memories of playing with their cameras when I was young (I use the word 'playing', as when I you're about 5-6 years old, it felt more like it at the time!), so it's always been something I'd wanted to try, I guess I kept putting it off. Being born in '87, it's fair to say that I've very much grown up in the digital era.
The main reason I wanted to start was simply to help improve my photography as a whole. Even before reading much about film photography, it goes without saying that it's a much slower process from start to finish. I've noticed on some occasions that I may have some 'bad habits' with digital photography, and like many, probably take advantage of how easy it is. From racking off dozens of images of a single scene, only to pick the best one later in Lightroom, only to find that none of them captured the moment as I wanted, to rushing the entire editing process in general in a hurry to get everything online.
