Unless you are shooting fine art or similar for a living, which is a unobtainable dream for most. 35mm is understandably not the most effective way of working. Most if not all effects of film photography are easily available in Photoshop or even apps such VSCO (which is a great app). Sometimes it can still be exciting loading the photographs from your memory card to your computer, but there is nothing like picking up a film after it being developed and seeing shots that you took months ago for the first time.
I usually have around three films loaded in different cameras, and each time I pick one up my love for photography returns. Using 35mm cameras is something that separates photography for work, and photography for the sake of photography for me. Don't get me wrong I love my job but I don't love all the jobs that I shoot, thats natural everyone who works has parts of there work that they enjoy and others aspects that are not quite so exciting.
In these days of apps and photos that are never seen, tucked away in folders on your hard drive. I encourage people to buy a 35mm camera of any quality and keep it in your house. When an occasion arrises that you would normally stick your hand in your pocket and pull out your smart phone, or when ever you feel inspired, grab your camera and shoot a quarter of a roll of film. Cameras are available all over the internet or quite often pop up in local Guernsey auctions such as Martel Maides. Ask you parents they probably already have one!
At least your children and grandchildren will know what you looked like when your computer goes bang. Make an album, stick them on a wall, start a personal project and post it online. My Fiancée also bought me a Fujifilm Instax, (modern version of the Polaroid). This is also a great way of documenting life and having fun with photography. The shots from the Instax are so timeless but also a more expensive with the camera retailing for around £100 and the film working out at around one pound per shot.
To get films developed locally try out Guernsey Photographics and also Fitzgeralds. If you don't want prints have them burnt straight to disk or buy your own negative scanner and collect them dev only, (developed only).
