This past weekend, 202filmcollective hosted its first ever meet. I was pretty excited since this was where film photographers like myself can get together and geek out about film shit. They'll be hosting monthly meetups/photo-walks in the future. Hell, you don't even need to have a film camera to join. Just the interest in film photography is enough. Interestingly enough, you can get into film photography with just $20 - maybe even less.
For me, film is just more enjoyable to shoot. I hate it when people argue that one is better than the other, because it's not. It's really just preference. If you ever want to learn how to shoot, develop, scan, or whatever, let me know and I'll be more than happy to help you out! Seriously, let me know. I have a couple of cameras that I wouldn't mind giving away if you really wanted haha.
The meet was began at Union Market in D.C. It was my first time there. It was pretty dope. You could tell they were going for the Chelsea Market vibe in NYC. Food was bomb. We walked around the area snapping photos and talking photog stuff. It was dope meeting new people who share the same interest as me. Can't wait for the next one.
