Currently watching YouTube to figure out how to be an Instagram influencer.
I will ascend to the top of film photography Insta.
Everyone follow my filmsta instagram.com/rlytglb/
Do it so I can get a job at a camera shop and wear felt baseball caps to parties where people drink slightly overwarm beer and complain about the subways of New York.

Quote tweeting because some other people might want to know about this and also might have more insight to offer.

I think it -can- be pricey, but it doesn't have to be. I think it's about being smart and knowing exactly what you need/want for your set up.
I have been doing this for maybe less than a month, lol. But literally I bought a film camera from an antique store in town, bought some film, and then started snapping. It can be that simple if you want!
Ebay has been really really really helpful in this journey. I've gotten lenses for some really decent prices and like...incredibly fast shipping. So, I say if you already have a camera, then get yourself like a 50mm lens that fits your mount and buy some Kodak film and go snap!

I had 2 rolls of Fuji Superia 400, 1 roll of Kodak Gold 200, and 1 Roll of Portra 800 developed, and from what I can tell, my Fuji rolls mostly came back mushy and washed out though it was cloudy when I shot them.
Kodak Gold 200 is stunningggggg on a really sunny day, and Portra is Portra.
I'm going to try to shoot the Fuji on a sunnier day. Also with a better aperture.

Something I’ve had to watch for and guard against from a childhood of trauma and violence is that when people ask me if I want to do something, I literally don’t even think about if I want to do it because I’m too busy trying to figure out what it is they want me to say, lmfaooo
It has only occurred to me fairly recently that my own wishes and desire to do things seldom enter into my calculations when someone asks me to do something. I’m still the kid who is afraid of his parents hitting him or getting mad if I don’t answer correctly.
It turns out that treating all of your human relationships like they’re a test to be passed or failed or a game to be won or lost is very unhealthy!

Maybe it's time I move to Brooklyn and start working in a camera shop and shooting rolls with the boys in Central Park before eventually starting a YouTube channel and becoming an influencer.
Like, Kerouac, but black. And gay...er. And like...less...uhm...misogyny.
Truly never writing again. I am a photography himbo now. Good day to you all.

Last night I saw a fan bot account for an author call the author out over a line of dialogue in the novel and demand accountability from them on this website and knew that we’d jumped the shark. Truly, reality is glitching.
At a certain point, it’s not even funny any more. Just weird.
The fan bot account literally tagged the author and said “please explain” 😖

Important camera update: I bought an adapter a few days ago to use my FL/FD lenses on my EOS 1N, but it would not work. And I was kind of sad. But then I ordered another adapter with electronic connectors, and it arrived today, and it works perfectly. 🥺
I have been waiting for my last four rolls to get developed before I went out shooting with the new camera just because it's still a little...temperamental and I want to make sure I have a reasonable sense of what I'm doing before I go out with it, lol.
The new camera is very advanced and it is supposed to make a lot of things easy, but I just got acclimated to doing everything manually and the new digital tools are very scary at first.
