Jumping into film

I currently shoot with a Canon 6d and this has been my camera of choice for the better part of 4 years because upgrading is too expensive and I still love the 6d. I have a 24 mm, 35 mm and a 50 mm. So the change in what I shoot and how I shoot is needed in my opinion. For my own creative process and photographic challenges. 

So I've done it!! I have made the jump into the film photography, its been something I have wanted to do for a long time but wasn't sure when I would want to start I and all the decisions that come with it. Which film to shoot with, what speed, and even that camera will I shoot with?

Considering film an old form of taking photos and these old cameras can break at anytime,  it seems these days people are getting tired of digital photography. Film is on the rise and  I personally wanted to try film because of the unknown aspect of it all. How will the images look once they are scanned, did I get that photo? These days everything is so quick and easy, you take a photo now and you see it within seconds. Where's the fun in that? Film gives the element of surprise you never know what you're going to get. 

I recently went shooting and shot 2 Kodak films. Why Kodak because the internet told me so. Thats my honest answer because I have never has to shoot a film or a speed or even camera that shoots film other than the disposable camera we used to take on family trips that I have never seen the result of. Film is almost permanent unless you decide not to take your work into photoshop or Lightroom. Editing is chosen from your film choice and the speed it also chosen in the beginning. I have about 18 more rolls of film on the way because I'm not sure which film I will like.
