Get Out and Shoot - Pretend Film Camera Challenge

In the days of film, we didn't have the ability to view our images immediately and then do a bunch of post processing.  So here's an exercise to make us think about our composition, exposure and image prior to pressing the shutter.  We're going to pretend that we have a film camera by:

  • Shooting only 36 images or less
  • Shooting at ISO 400
  • Turning off our LCD screen
  • No post production

All cameras are welcome.  We'll spend a couple of hours shooting and then maybe grab a beer afterwards.

    One bad thing about the digital age is that film is really hard to find now! I can only find Kodak Gold ASA 400 color and I want to shoot B&W. I guess I'll have to use the Nikon. :(

      I will also bring a roll of Fuji Pro ASA 400 for you Donna. It's been sitting in my fridge long enough to forget about it.

      <3 thanks :) I'm just sorry the battery is dead! I'll buy another one and shoot the roll and post some later :)

    Perfect weather for walk-around photo taking. Fun group of people - thanks! Overall a very mellow and fun scene. Nice way to spend an hour or 2 or 2.5. I am taking my roll in to be developed today, hope to post pictures in a few.

    Sounds like we're shooting jpeg. Are we shooting manual only, no automatic settings?

    Wish I could join in with this (as I've still not been able to come to one), but I'll be back home in England - plus I'd bring a real film camera or two. Maybe if it's a fun meetup we could do it again??
