Film Photography About
My name as the Title of the site suggests is Philip Curwen. I currently reside in Burlington Ontario which is located in the South West part of the Province. I’ve been taking photographs since I was young back in the 80’s. I still have my first used camera I purchased back in the 80’s which is the good old trusty 35mm SLR Nikon FE. It does however have a light leak so I have now put it to rest. I want to evolve this website into a good resource for film Photography. I want to showcase my own film photography as well as review other film photographer blogs, review photography books and also review my own cameras and film I use. I want to focus on my own film photography creativity and work harder at making some themes. I want to try night long exposure film photography and also shadows and shapes. I prefer color over black and white but do want to shoot more black and white film. My current camera list includes:

35mm Nikon FE SLR – Nikkor 35mm f1.4 and Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lenses
35mm Canon AE-1 SLR – Canon 28mm f2.8 lens
