A few months ago I bought a Olympus XA2 film camera from eBay for a decent price. This camera is light and compact, and I can easily bring it with me everywhere I go. I find that film photography is still a bit challenging for me since I only have 24-36 exposures, and I won’t see the end result until it’s developed. Overall, I’m somewhat happy with how some my photos came out.

A while back, I started film photography. There was a lot of trial and error, but I enjoyed every moment of it. I hope to continue improving my skills, and learn from my mistakes. Here are some shots from my first roll.
Photo at my University:
During my junior year of college, I had the opportunity to be a student assistant in my professor’s film class. I learned a lot about film photography, especially developing black and white film in the dark room. Being a student assistant in that class, gave me a new perspective in photography. When enrolled in the class, students were able to borrow a film camera for the entire quarter. This class really got me into film photography, but I never really went through with buying a film camera of my own. Two-years later, I finally bought my first film camera. When taking photos, I usually use my iPhone 7, and sometimes my Canon T5i (when traveling). Starting film is a bit nerve-wrecking because I won’t really know how my photos will turn out until it’s developed. But as a beginner, I’m not that afraid of making a mistake because every mistake I make is a lesson. I can’t wait start shooting, and learning more about film.
