that’s how and where photography is supposed to be and to go… real photography can’t be just a digital knowledge of what’s needed to take a shot, even worst if you think a smartphone would be enough to call it photography.
And if, during the whole process you don’t give yourself the opportunity to know something about films, grain and slides… you are on the wrong track.
As I always say, never think you had enough to learn about any matter, because it’s never enough.
Use your passion to feed your own soul and mind.
And if you get a chance learn about films and grain and try it one day.
