Shooting on Film (Part 4)

How to load film in your SLR

Dominic Delore

I love photography and I think everyone who loves taking photos should try film photography at some point. It is not as difficult or expensive as many make it out to be. I roll of film can cost around 8 dollars and you can find a used SLR for 30-80 dollars. Most cheap point and shoot digital cameras are 60 to 120 dollars, so it's not like you're saving money by going digital. (Also the film looks way better. No need for Instagram filters trying to emulate film if you're using the real thing.) Like most actions, it takes time to learn and develop your skills. Shooting on film will really help improve your compositional techniques and how you think about light. It is a great feeling when you get the shot the want. This video will clear up any confusion of how to load film into most SLR cameras.
