Inspire Yourself with FILM NOTES

FILM NOTES is a distillation of everything I learned about film photography for the last six years. If I started film photography all over again, I wish I had a copy of FILM NOTES.

With FILM NOTES, you will streamline your learning process on shooting film and learn the fundamentals of film photography such as:

  • Mastering manual exposure
  • Never missing the ‘decisive moment’
  • How to push film for street photography
  • Designing a custom workflow for developing, scanning, and storing film.

Cindy and I believe that you can learn how to shoot film in a fun and easy way. FILM NOTES will demystify all of the confusing jargon online about film photography, and help direct you to enjoy the joy of shooting film.
