    One tip, since you're not going to have the luxury of instant feedback like a digital camera, my suggestion if you're first starting out with film photography is to take a notebook with you on your shoots until you get comfortable with how aperature, shutter speed, and ISO affect your images. Write down the subject, type of day it is (full sun, partly cloudy, dawn, dusk, etc.) and also the settings (aperature, shutter speed, and ISO) for each picture you take so you know what you did.

    This way, when you get the pictures developed you can look at them and attribute the outcomes to how you used the camera. If something came out over or under exposed, you'll be able to attribute it to something and adjust next time.

    What kind of camera did you get by the way?

    It's a cannon. My sister bought it 3 years ago new for 650$.

    Have fun with it. Film can be much more forgiving than digital as long as you've got the basics down.
