The Best Film Photography Guide for Beginners
By Marina Llopis
Hola! I'm Marina from IFWEFILM! How nice to meet you here!
If you are reading this, you've probably been curious about how to start taking analogue photos and enjoying all that film photography has to offer. I can definitely understand that - the magic of taking pictures on film can make anyone fall in love!
So first of all, I want to give you a very warm welcome to the wonderful world of film and secondly, tell you that you've landed in just the right place. Let's get started!
It's possible that film photography might seem a little bit intimidating at first since there are a few new concepts to learn, but honestly once you have the basics crystal clear, the rest is pure experimentation and joy.
That’s why I created this guide for you!
This guide has been built to make your entry into the world of analogue photography as easy and clear as possible. That means that I’ve put aside complicated technicalities and simplified as much as possible to give you the essential information in a really easy way.
To help make it a fun and accessible journey into film I have divided the guide into sections; Part One will cover Analogue Cameras, Part Two will guide you through the basics of films, and Part Three will help you decide what to do after shooting your film.
