    Great shots, wonderful tones. I love the last one especially as I like wide angle perspective distortion in clouds too.

    garypowers; I like the blue hue to those photos, I think they'd lose something if you did the WB.

    Best time for night photography is the twilight zone, from sunset till about 45 minutes after. After that the sky can be very dirty

    I took these on a film camera - a Nikon F50. You can pick one up on ebay for about £50 to £100.

    The effect on the third one (and a bit on all of them really) is from having a really wide aperture. I used a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens (again, available on ebay). The wider the aperture (the smaller the number, so 1.8 is really wide) the more bokeh (out of focus area) you have in the background. It's easy really

    Film's awesome too because you have to wait while it gets developed and you never know how it'll come out. I used fuji film for the first time (usually a kodak fan) and the colours came out so much brighter than I was expecting, which was really nice.


    I recommend shooting film to everyone, especially with a lush camera like the Nikon F50...

    Basically what Suzanathema said, wider aperture >f./2.0 works for decent background blur (bokeh).

    I'm aware this is a heated subject at times so I'm not wanting to start an argument, but why?
    it's more expensive, difficult to experiment and learn because by the time it comes back most people can't remember the settings they used, if the camera isn't working you don't know until you get the film back, you have to wait for the photos instead of seeing and sharing them straight away, and the vast majority of labs convert to a digital image before printing on a digital printer anyway.
    I've only had one film camera in my life but I couldn't see myself ever going back.

    Miss Mary, you need (as suzanathema said) a lens that has a wide maximum aperture. You're looking for a small number.
    If you're working with a compact camera you may still be able to do it. Have a hunt around the menus and see what options you have. On the front of the lens it should tell you the maximum aperture (I believe most are around 3 which could still give you the effect you're after depending on the placement of your subject in relation to your lens).
    Otherwise, you could play around with close up photography as most compact cameras give you great bokeh in macro mode.
