Film cameras

Hello everyone! It's been over a week since I've written a new post partly due to lack of inspiration and that I've been so busy with A Level work and applying for university. Today I thought I'd do a post on two of my recent purchases, which I'm very excited to use. After being interested in photography for a number of years now I've been desperate to try out film photography's and experiment more with photography. I love the depth and effect film photography has and the small imperfections of the final image...which make it perfect in its own way. I find by having an DSLR camera I become quite picky whether my photo is in focus or not or whether it is too over exposed. Then I find myself deleting the image and re-taking it. But that's the beauty of film photography, you don't know what the photograph looks like until you've got it developed. So in effect you really have 'captured' the moment and that's one of the reasons I was drawn to start trying film photography.

I picked up this film camera and Polaroid camera for a few pounds in a local secondhand shop and they look brand new so I'm just praying that they work properly and I'm able to finally get into film photography. Having never used a film camera before I know that my first batch of images won't be brilliant but hey ho I'll give it a try. When I was researching into the film needed for the Polaroid I noticed it was quite expensive, if any of you know any shops or websites where I could get it cheaper it would be much appreciated!
