Great beginner friendly course to film and photography!

Great course! I have loved Willems content for a long time and was excited to see them release this course. I felt like it was a great intro to film photography and overall simple principles of photography. It motivated me to go out and get my first film camera and begin shooting. Hopefully they release more courses that dive into more intermediate / advanced aspects of film + photography as I felt that they did a really well job explaining a lot of the concepts covered.

Thanks Willem

I knew most of this through his YouTube videos but to have him break it down again all in one place made it super easy to follow, and the flash section was super helpful as it's impossible to find information on flash film photography online.

Really enjoyed this course

I have recently started shooting film after testing out a roll of portra and falling in love with the results. I started watching Willem's youtube channel and found this course on moment. I really enjoyed the course especially learnt a lot from the exposure latitude tests and his approach to metering for film. Also I used to be really reluctant of taking a lot of exposures on film as it costs a lot and ended up not shooting much before and this course gave me confidence to go out and shoot more and I am really enjoying the process.

Where there's a Willem, there's a way!

Thanks for the great course Willem and Moment. This has inspired me to spend more time thinking about how I take film photos and how to shoot with various film stocks. Worth it!

Can't get enough of it!

Huge thanks to Willem and Moment crew for making this lesson! I've learned so many things that will help me be more confident in the film world. The way Willem conducted the lesson is very easy to understand and each sections are really helpful! The quality of videos is simply beautiful and the opportunity to see how Willem works and how he takes photos in this slower way than on the YouTube videos is worth every penny!  Just another big thank you to Willem itself for not only bringing me into film photography with his channel but also for teaching this essential things! Hope to see some more lessons with Willem on moment!

Willem and crew

Absolutely loved this lesson, so informative and easy follow. Willem is incredibly inviting and passionate. I’d recommend this to anyone who’s interested in photography and even those who do shoot film and are looking for a better understanding about what they’re doing and how to do it confidently


so good lesson !

tk u Willem for this training ! best regards from France ;)

Alex Holmes

Excellent Content!

This really helped me get over the fear of shooting outside of fully automatic and delve into the world of manual. Can't wait to get back out again and put my new found knowledge to the test

Adam Edmundson

Amazing educational lesson

This course was an amazing lesson and worth every penny. Being new to film and as a long time digital user there are many times I find myself trying to work through situations I normally rely on technology to solve. This course was an easy way to learn the fundamentals of film, equipment, and technically sound ways to start and take better photos. The ease of use of the lesson plans made it simply enjoyable and not a taxing journey to find the next worksheet or video. The information was technically astute and easily explained for great uptake of Willem's knowledge.

Superb & Great Intro to Film Photography

Loved this lesson! I've only been shooting film for about 1.5 years and there's definitely still plenty to learn. Even though this lesson covered a lot of introductory things I already knew, the segments on how to do night photography and seeing Willem's process when it comes to framing and editing were super valuable. It really made me want to go out and just shoot through my rolls.
