    I've spent the last year getting super into film photography and thought I'd make this thread just to see what you guys are shooting with, how you're developing your pictures and obviously just to see some of your pictures!

    I've spent the last year mostly just doing street photography and candids of my friends with a point and shoot Pentax Espio 80 (I absolutely love this camera) and practicing portraits with a Minolta X-370. I recently just upgraded to a Minolta XD which is on its way to me now. I ended up sticking with a Minolta because the lenses are amazing for the price and the cameras themselves are so reliable.

    I've been dropping my film off at a local lab to get developed and then I've scanned them myself with an Epson V370 flatbed scanner and I've had no issues with that so far. As far as film stocks go I've mainly just used cheap Kodak Gold and then Portra 160/400 for portraits. I might buy a Patterson tank and some chemicals to develop at home if this lockdown goes on much longer lol

    Figured it'd be a good time to share pics and setups since we all stuck inside anyways

    I have a dusty ass Pentax K1000. The light meter is not working so I have to use a phone app to measure the light or just my instinct.

    I love taking pictures of people though and obviously that's not really popping off right now, but I updated my website with a lot of pictures I've taken over the past year and a half

    I have a speedlite for my SLR, you set the ISO on it and lets out the right amount of light and I've gotten good results. Overall though I like shooting with natural light way way better. Once this quarantine ends I'm gonna get an LED light box with a diffuser that I can adjust the brightness and use that to shoot portraits.

    So I bought a kit to develop my own black and white film. The labs are taking forever to develop my color s*** so I figured I'd try out black and white so I can get something developed quick. Been fooling around with some self-portraits. What have ya'll been shooting?

    Just shoot film bruv. If you don't know much about photography get a cheap point and shoot, you can get fairly cheap reflex cameras too or why not you can start even a disposable camera

    For the people wanting to get into film photography, check the Ricoh 500GX out its perfect for beginners (and also experienced ones).

    Small, cheap, metering works good, automatic and manual mode, sharp lens, double exposure lever, sturdy.
