This semester, I was lucky enough to take my first film photography class. As a photo major, I have only worked with digital previously and this was a unique and exciting way to extend my portfolio and skill. My final portfolio was particularly important to me, as I documented how the female form interacts with nature. I used my little sister for the shoot and it was a great experience for both of us, as I haven’t shot with her in a long time. I think that this class has allowed my skill level to improve dramatically, as I feel much more comfortable using a completely manual camera now. This will greatly benefit me in my major field.
