I finally got a camera and was able to play around with some film.

I want to thank the No Exit crew for assisting me in finding these locations. Locations will be recognizable.

Also, I have no clue what I am doing so this whole set looks like it was put together by a moody high-schooler who doesn't understand how to meter light and does not have a camera stand.

Wow, great start! Only recommendation I have is to cut back on the ISO and work some with full color. I like your style, so I hope to see you improve even more!

Thanks dammband!

@Rockthethrill

I do not have a tripod so I figured hi-iso film (ilford 3200) would be my best bet. I am excited to work with more color and low iso film once I have a bit more equipment.

Nice shots

As a film nerd, I figured I'd give you a few pointers, take em or leave em. The Ilford 3200 is a great film, if you're looking for a finer grain, I've found that almost all 400 speed black and white film pushes well to 1600 (I prefer ultrafine400 because its cheap and hasn't failed me yet). Also, I've shot all of the locations you posted on 400 speed film without a tripod, it's all about finding the light in locations where there is a drastic lighting difference.

What camera are you using?

Thanks! I have some Tri-X 400 I will mess around with next time I am out.

Camera was a Minolta Maxxum 9000, I forget what sort of lens it has on it.
