: Hi Joe! I'm wanting to start some film photography this summer and I'm definitely a novice. I was wondering: what is a good starter film camera and where do you develop your photos? Thank you! (ps I'm a huge fan of your work c: )
Great question. My first SLR was a Minolta X-370 with a 50mm 1.7 (roughly $50) and I really enjoyed it! Similar cameras that are also great are Canon AE-1, and Pentax K-1000. The Minolta has a great in camera light meter though and a Auto mode for when your still learning about shutter speed and aperature.
Hope this helps!
This weekend I had the pleasure to shoot the creative mind behind millayvintage . Not only is she a great person but her eye for original vintage woman’s clothing is inspiring. The dreamy and timeless pieces she collects and sells fit my vision perfectly and I am excited to continue working with her.

Anonymous: Howd you afford a ten thousand dollar camera?
My camera was nowhere near ten thousand! I paid $2,000 for my 5DMarkii. I afforded it by working my ass off in retail for a year and saving every penny.
Anonymous: do you use film camera sometimes?
Yeah! not as much lately but I do shoot with a Canon EOS 1 from time to time!

: I LOVE YOU PHOTOS! :) THEY ARE STUNNING, MAY I KNOW WHAT'S YOUR GEAR AND USUAL SETTINGS?
My gear is 5D markii, 35L and 50 1.4.
It’s hard to say what my usual settings are since there really are none! I place my settings according to the situation. I guess ideally I like shooting at 2.8 ISO 200 or lower.
Hope this helps!
I took this same photo four years ago.
