A few weeks ago, I pulled out my Nikon F100 ordered some film on ebay
Then I went out to shoot.

I learned that you can easily get lax with digital.  Just knowing there were only 36 images on the roll, made me think about a lot of things.

1- I found myself purposely composing and recomposing before I shot
2- I checked and double checked the exposure settings before I pressed the shutter 
3- I even caught myself looking at the back of the camera, trying to see the photo I have just taken!  No LCD WOW!

After I finished the roll I brought it to a shop in Massapequa on Broadway
I paid $5 to develop the roll and $3 to put the images on a CD- (Prints were not included)

Then I waited and for a few days thought how embarrassed I would be if the photos did not look good.

To my surprise, The photos I took came out excellent and I was very pleased with the results and the whole experiment!

If you have a old film camera lying around, I highly recommend you try this.
You will learn a lot about the way you take pictures.

And it was fun too!
