From Film Photography to Digital Photography

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably already know that I took a film photography class in Spring 2015. It was awesome and I learned a lot about the work it takes to get some really nice prints.

My Pentax K100 - I love it!
The class requirement was to get a film ONLY camera. We were not even allowed to speak of digital. Haha. I went with the Pentax K1000. I love this camera and any old cameras really. They are sturdy and heavy. The detail on this camera is beautiful. If you are into details, that is. Editing a print takes a lot more work and technique because you could end up wasting a lot of your developing tools and paper. Let me tell you - this stuff is not CHEAP!

However, I also knew I wanted to learn about digital photography because it's a lot easier to integrate into my blog. I love being able to just take a picture and see if its good or not right away. It's also convenient to be able to load them onto my computer and edit them quickly. Don't be fooled though! Digital photographers definitely have their work cut out for them and you have to give them a lot of credit for sitting for HOURS at a time, editing and perfecting their work. You can see A LOT of detail in digital photography that sometimes film photography can be forgiving to.

The verdict? I love them both and if you ever have a chance to take a film photography class, do it. It will be an awesome experience. You'll be amazed at how creative you are and the differences between the film and digital photos are.
