Welcome to my film photography blog! 

Along with sharing my passion for the analog tradition, the goal of this blog is to present information on film processing and cameras from the perspective of an amateur hobbyist.

Film is not dead, but as I restarted shooting film a few years back, I often struggled to find the information to answer my simple questions in a meaningful and up-to-date manner.  Along with my  developing and scanning guides, I will post camera reviews and experiments. Please message me with any questions or suggestions for future posts. Also check out my Instagram to see my film results!
