I have been playing around with digital photography since 2017 and just a few months—a few months—ago did I find out my mom was pretty sure she still had her film camera from when she was 18…

So, I asked her to find it because I wanted to try it and naturally totally forgot about it. But then, she surprised me by bringing it to my apartment and I was absolutely stoked.

Flash forward a couple weeks to when I visited my parents and actually got to use the camera because I wanted to use it with them and needed to get film. (Yeah, didn’t plan that very well.)

Either way, it was a lot of fun. I don’t think I’ll ever use film for professional sessions (I take way too many photos for that), but I do think it’ll be fun to bring out during parties and other social gatherings.

For now, here are a few of my favs from the “test roll”.

For reference I used:
Canon AE-1 Program film camera
Kodak Ultramax 400 film


I know very little about film, but I’m excited to play around with different films (over a long period of time because expensive). If anyone has any tips, tricks, or suggestions on film photography in general, let me know!
