Hello everyone, I have recently started out using a film camera. I have a Canon AE - 1 program with a 50mm lens and have been practising with it. I have been using the camera by adjusting the shutter speed and focusing at the moment. I have read up about f stops and apertures but need to apply the knowledge to get my head around the concept. Can anyone reccommed any excercises to do to see and compare the effect of a range of f stops? Also I have found that not all of my photos are completly in focus. I am thinking this is just due to my lack of experince and not being used to manually focusing a camera? I am going on holiday next week, so hoping to have lots of opportunities to try it out. So far, I am enjoying film photography. I thought it would be best to go back to basics and learn using film rather than digital. Also enjoying the camera itself Any suggestions or help greatly appreciated.
