With Instagram presenting us with an almost unlimited amount of photographs everyday, it's quite easy to forget that these things called books exist. Books provide a far greater source of inspiration than anything found on Instagram. Why? because these are collections of art created over years of hard work, and they offer an entire experience the second you open that book.
So the N90s (or F90x) is from the mid-90s? Isn't shooting film about getting to the heart of manual exposure, and diving back to the basics of photography?

So you are probably thinking that I am talking rubbish, but there is history to it. The way in which film was developed was greatly influenced by the early users.

Film photography was a booming form of expression in the 20th century. Film photography was used for family photos, journalism, and even in artistic settings. At the turn of the century, photography turned to digital as you paid a big amount of money upfront. Yet every photo from then on only took space off your memory card, making it cost-efficient. While film cameras are inexpensive today, you pay for rolls of film which add up over time. Despite this, the cost of film photography is oddly one of its charms. As well as the widely sought after film look, which many photographers who use digital photoshop to accomplish.

I visit film locations. I love creating. I love exploring. So here is one little trip that made my vision come true.
Perhaps one of the biggest comebacks in the history of the camera is the Polaroid. Polaroids were one of the hottest cameras of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s due to their near-instant development. By the time that the 90s came around, Polaroid cameras started to sink in popularity.
Every photographer who has ever used a DSLR gets a sense of pride from their shots. Some like to hang them up in high-gloss prints, put in nice, shiny frames. It's a classic thing that even amateur photographers enjoy.
For those of us who have film cameras, since they're not digital with a viewfinder, it's difficult to find ways to transfer our photos onto the computer. It's not like any digital camera where we can take out the memory card and insert it into our computer. Since film cameras use film to take photos, we have to find a way to transfer the film into the computer. And that's what film scanners are created for!
Compared to digital cameras, we can't technically see how our photos turn out until we've fully scanned them with film. For digital cameras, you can easily see how the photo turned out from the viewfinder. But that's not how it works for film cameras, since the majority of them don't technically possess a digital viewfinder. And when we use film cameras, lighting can play a major role in how we want our photos to look. We definitely don't want to use film that will make all of your photos look dull and dark from the natural lighting. We want our photos to use the natural lighting and create great-looking photos every time. This natural lighting is usually labeled as ambient lighting.
