Ferrania Solaris 200, Pentax K1000
Buy a cheap used camera. Don’t spend the money on a “good camera”. Instead, buy more films and buy a ticket to travel. That’s what make good pictures.
These words by The Sleeper and the Dreamer (via Shooting Film), meant for beginners on film photography, resonate so well. I can’t even keep count on how many times I’ve said, “But you can buy a plane ticket with that money!” when any of my friends (or myself) are dwelling on an unnecessary purchase. It doesn’t even have to be a ticket to another country – buy yourself a bus ticket, train ticket, boat ticket – just go somewhere you’ve never been with your new old camera. Good things will happen.
