my relationship with film photography

last january, i logged onto ebay and bought a used canon ae-1 for $145.

i knew nothing about film, the camera, the technicalities of photography, or common selling prices of canon ae-1's (which just so happen to be about $70 less than i paid. oops).

when it arrived, i ran to walmart to grab the cheapest film i could find, asked my mom to load it for me, and waited for a picture-perfect opportunity to strike.

this is the first film photo i ever shot.
