    Wow!! BEST breakout I have ever purchased! So many of my questions about film were answered and new ideas took root. I was actually about to give up on film and then I found this breakout! Not only is there a ton of information but the aesthetics is just so gorgeous. Jennifer is a wealth of information and she shares her she knows it with the film community and I’m so excited to have found her .

    I’m not new to shooting with film, yet I learned so much from the shooting video and PDF in this breakout. My biggest take-aways were about which film to use, how to communicate with the lab about scans, and pushing/pulling film! It’s hard to find good contemporary information like this on shooting with film. I hope she does another ASAP!

    I am not new to film, but it is a constant learning process. I’ve followed Jennifer’s awesome work on IG and am always up for continued education with film stocks, metering, etc. I’ve been in a creative rut since the new year and I’m hoping this will give me some inspiration for a new film project. Thank you SO much for offering this wonderful breakout for those of us who want to see more ways to be successful with our film photography!

    I’ve been shooting film for a little over a year here and there; just a handful of rolls. Jennifer was incredibly thoughtful with her responses to questions and so generous with her time. She provided thorough information in the PDF and videos. I feel inspired (and equipped) to start shooting more film in my everyday life and trusting my skills more with all of those important (and “important to me”) life moments. Exactly what I was looking for with this breakout!

    I just started learning about film on a whim about a month ago or so, and to my surprise this breakout came at the perfect time! If you are looking for an excellent, comprehensive introduction into film photography – THIS IS YOUR BREAKOUT! It’s packed with the perfect amount of information you need to get started and the videos are fantastic. Jen is so open with her time and tips on learning film photography which will give you so much more confidence if you’re starting out. Be careful…film photography will become an addictive hobby for you after this breakout! I’ve already gone through a handful of rolls and am anxiously awaiting scans to come back from the labs. Which is a nice refresher for me compared to chimping off the back of my digital camera and just quickly going through my SD cards. Film photography is a breath of fresh air for me in my photography journey, forcing me to take an extra step back, an extra breath back and really wait for that decisive moment. Jen’s breakout has helped me with all the knowledge I could ever need before clicking that shutter button.

    It has been years since I shot with film and even then I didn’t know what I was doing. When I saw this breakout session I was so excited to learn how to shoot with film. What I am finding is that this is helping me to understand digital photography better at the same time. Thank you Jennifer!

    I have been interested in learning film for quite some time, but I never knew where to begin. I was thrilled to learn about Everyday Film. As someone who knew nothing about film prior to this breakout, I now feel confident about choosing the right film for the right situation, rating film, pushing film, processing and editing film, and working with a lab. Jennifer’s participation in the forum has been incredible. I have taken several breakouts in the past, and this one has by far been the most informative and helpful. I can’t believe how quickly I’m learning the nuts and bolts of film photography, and I’m eager to grow with the facebook group!

    I love this breakout! I’ve been wanting to play with film for ages and have loads of old film cameras to play with. Jennifer breaks everything down so it’s super simple and takes the fear out of jumping in! My favourite part of this breakout it watching her hour-long shooting video. It was so helpful to watch how she interacted with a family that was so real and dealt with all the curve balls that these sessions can bring. Thank you, Jennifer!

    This is like taking a sneak peek into Jennifer’s brain to see how she makes film magic! Jennifer’s comprehensive e-guide alone is worth more than $25, and all the supporting videos are worth their weight in gold. This breakout is a no-brainer if you’re even slightly interested in learning film for personal or business endeavors!

    I had been thinking about jumping on to the film bandwagon, but was feeling intimidated by the process and unsure how to start. If you are like me and have been intrigued to try out film…maybe again…you don’t want to miss this breakout!! I shot film back in the 80’s and I thought I knew what I was doing, but Jennifer Lawrence has quickly filled in gaps I didn’t even know I had!! From the basics, such as loading both 35 and medium format film, to rating and pushing films, to how to meter properly, and how to best select a lab, Jennifer has provided a wealth of information. Nothing is held back and everything is clear and concise. Moreover, Jennifer has inspired me with her gorgeous images and helpful information. Jennifer has made a believer out of me, and I can’t wait to try out my new (old) camera and to capture the magic that only film can deliver. If you’ve even THOUGHT about trying film again, you won’t want to miss this one!!

    Jennifer’s Everyday Film breakout has been fantastic! I have tried several times in the past to understand how to shoot film and this breakout has brought everything together for me. She explains things in an easy to understand way and has been an open book. She has encouraged everyone to ask questions and has been as present in the live run as a full on workshop. She shows lots of examples of galleries with different film stocks, how she rated them and whether they were pushed etc. as well as a video of her shooting and editing. She’s even started a FB group for after the breakout for people to continue to share and grow. This breakout is a great investment for the money! You will not be disappointed.

    Everyday film is an awesome breakout on working with film. Jennifer covers all the aspects and is so helpful in the forum. The PDF and videos are very detailed and helpful. Highly recommended if you want to incorporate film into your photography.

    Even though I am a breakout addict, for some reason, I did not even have this breakout on my radar. A year or so ago, I had begun playing with film but had put my film camera down with a half used roll of film still in the camera. Lately, I had thought about picking it up again, but felt like I had forgotten everything and would be starting all over again with the learning. Then I saw this breakout advertised for $25 (Ahhhmazing cost for this – sooooo worth it), and I knew it was exactly what I needed. It has perfectly met my expectations, and I highly recommend it! Most importantly, this is one breakout you want to jump in live for sure! There are so many questions are answered in the live forum that you will not want to miss it. Jennifer is awesome (as is her beautiful work), and I feel like I have had multiple light bulb moments already. You will get all the basics about metering, rating, pushing/pulling, lab choices, film choices, and camera options. Additionally, working with film has been such a great exercise for me as a photographer, and I think that every photographer can benefit from the learning and patience that is inherent in working with film. I believe it is a creative and effective exercise to improve your skills as a digital shooter as well.

    Wow. WOW!!! I am 100% new to film and was hoping this breakout would introduce me to it well enough to actually pick up my film camera for the first time and shoot, and man did it do that!! There is a wealth of information here and Jennifer is SOOOOO helpful answering any questions (during the live run)!

    If you are looking to introduce film into your photography workflow, you absolutely need to start here. This is the introduction you’ve been waiting for! Professionals in our industry often times play a guessing game when it comes to this beautiful medium, resulting in photographs that aesthetically veer far from their intentions; I look back at my beginning days with film and wonder how much money I wasted to teach myself the basics. I lacked the fundamentals that are SO IMPORTANT when you are shooting film, e.g.: how to meter in different lighting scenarios, how to communicate with your lab, when to shoot which film stock, even the most basic procedures for how to properly load a roll of medium format film! Jen is an expert at shooting film and yet she still manages to break down the important foundations of shooting this way in a simple to understand and approachable format. If I could change one thing about my experience with film, I would beg the film gods to have sent me this guide! It is informative, easy to understand, and even for experienced film shooters is a great refresher course before the busy season begins. I simply can’t recommend this course enough — it is a game changer!
