look at this fish that looks like a dog
YOOO that means a lot! It can be scary/uncomfortable not knowing what you took at first, but once you get used to it, it’s actually pretty liberating and really fun! Also, I use a pretty dinky rangefinder that does like 90% of the technical work for me and I’d definitely recommend going that route if you’re trying to get into it and don’t have a lot of experience with using any kind of SLR (i don’t use an film SLR because I have a DSLR, but I hate lugging that thing around to shows/almost everywhere nowadays). Feel free to message me with any questions about this in the future!
