I should preface this entire post with the fact that I started into photography back in 2004 with a digital camera. I had never shot film previous to last year. Back in the summer, I happened across a Nikon FE at a garage sale for $5. Owning a Nikon DSLR and a few film-friendly lenses, I snapped it up. The first roll of film I ran through it was Ilford XP2 400. I wasn't overly happy with the results, partly due to underexposing most of the shots and mis-loading the film. It was nice to see that the camera worked though. For my second roll, I decided to try a film that was a little different. Enter the Kodak Ektar 100. Kodak touts that it's the "World's Finest Grain" in a color negative. I was told it's great for scenery and landscape work, as it has high colour saturation. I started the roll back in the fall as the leaves started to change and just finished it up the other day. I really liked how the photos turned out.
I am definitely falling in love with shooting film and plan on shooting much more in the future.
