If you want an intro analogue camera you can find a lot of old rangefinders on ebay for super cheap. I got a yashica electro 35 gsx on bela's recommendation and I love it. If you want something a little more fiddly so you can get the hang of manual controls, you could try a canonet which are also fun and really cheap.

As much of a bargain 5D Mk Is are on ebay, etc. I wouldn't recommend getting one as your first camera. Full frame SLRs are massive (>1kg with lens) and you probably won't want to schlep it around everywhere. I made that mistake with my 7D I think. Look into mirrorless cameras. You can get an Olympus OM-D E-M5 body for <$400.

One of my favorite shots from my first roll of film. More than half of it was just personal photographs, not really trying to compose well/taking pictures of friends/SO. But I really enjoy landscape shots, I've got a few spots in mind that I'm going to go by next time I get a free night that I can get out before the sunset finishes.

Sunsets are cool af.

Anyone have a Fuji Instax Mini/210 at all? Thinking about getting one of them as a gift, and not sure which would be better.

Alternatively I could I get a polaroid camera, though the film is really expensive and the cameras are kind of bulky.

I've got a fuji instax 50s which I very much like. can't go wrong with any of the instax cameras. The higher the number, the more features. Plus, the 210 shoots on wider film. Instax is great because the film is cheap and almost foolproof to shoot. Polaroid cameras are super cheap (i've found dozens at thrift stores) and have great nostalgic factor. Impossible Film is the only reliable way to get film for polaroids and it's ridiculously expensive and unreliable. It's fun to experiment with though!

talking about sx-70s, here's my baby:

Some shots from the Swans concert that turned out decent I thought.

Also think I'm gonna start collecting photos of some close friends while they eat food at misc places, I've got probably 20 of my SO but I figured I could expand the awk-candid shots to my circle of friends.

Image

And Sylvan Esso was cool as heck, cool chick for sure, cute couple.

Some shots from a surprise birthday party I threw

Film is really fun, got these scanned at the photo lab for free w/order of prints which is nice. Looking into developing my next roll by myself, it'll be black and white.

Recommendations for books about photography in general? Could be specifics like different methods for obtaining certain effects or general advice on composing good shots etc.

Just looking for some stuff to keep me busy for the next month with this bridge program.

Went to Newport yesterday. I don't know if other coastal areas are like this right now, but the coast of Rhode Island is about 30 degrees cooler and ridiculously foggy when compared to a few miles inward. Stupid me only brought my phone despite my friend telling me to go back and grab my camera a minute after we left though...

This last roll was kind of a bummer. My friend was checking out my camera when I went to the restroom and she accidentally opened the back and exposed a bunch of the film. Only lost 6-7 shots and a few had some bad exposure on them as well but most of the ones I wanted ended up being fine.

I got the info of a guy in Tucson who still makes tintype photographs or something of the sort. He has a super cute darkroom of his own and has an encyclopedia's worth of info. I only got to talk with him for an hour or so but he invited me to spend the day with him next time I was free to hear about all of his gear and take me through his dark room process. Really cool guy.
