Well, this may sound weird, but I'm something of an amateur digital photographer (I can't tell you how hours I've spent with my E-500 around my neck), and I'm looking to learn 35mm now. My grandfather gave me his old Nikkormat FTN, and I don't know why but the simplicity of the thing absolutely astounds me. After I cleaned it up and removed the very 60's era strap (amazing how the brown, floral design worked for everything from couches to straps for camera's back then) I realized there was still about half a roll in it so I spent the last 40 or so minutes playing with the different lenses, filters, and stuff just learning how that works. Now the problem is...well, I'm used to being able to SEE what I just took, haha. So basically I'm relearning the manual mode for this camera, because I have a feeling its going to be an entirely different world from the manual settings on my E-500 (and yes, I only ever go all manual with my dslr, I can't stand the automatic settings). Once I develop this roll I hope to get a better feel for what F-stop to use with what shutter speed and all that good stuff, but I was wondering if someone might have a good little guide or chart or some reference material that I could look at in the mean time. Just so that maybe I won't go through QUITE as many rolls of film while learning the basics. Hmm, it would help if the stupid light meter on the camera worked, it just needs a new battery though. So, yeah, just looking for tips in the way of the mechanics of the camera. I think I'm alright as far as composing photographs goes though, people tell me I have an eye that I could develop into something good. My web site is www.carlsonline.net if you want to check out some random photos (the good ones are mixed in with the mediocre ones so if anyone wants me to point out the ones I like I'd be more than happy, I kind of want to get some opinions from people who are better at this than me).
