Advantages Better photographs Less wasted film
First of all know your camera's limits. Don't expect to be able to get poster size prints from anything smaller than a 35mm camera without loss of definition.Try to fill the frame with your subject. Many times I've seen pictures taken at airshows where the subject (an aircraft flying past) is a speck in the sky.
Slow down don't just point and press. Look through the picture at the background, you don't want trees coming out of peoples heads.Use a tripod. In using a tripod you automatically slow down and you get the advantage of having a stable platform for your camera.
Use flash for most if not all photographs inside and out. In using flash especially on bright sunny days you get rid of harsh shadows on peoples faces.If your camera accepts a range of different speed films use this facillity to your advantage. Slow speed films need longer exposure but the set off is that they are more contrasty, and conversly faster speed films need shorter exposure but are less contrasty. For example to make a dull winters day appear more contrasty than it actually is choose a slow speed film and remember to take a tripod for the longer exposure times, again on a sunny day where the contrast is bright use a fast film to reduce the contrast. (This is known as matching your film and exposure with the subject luminency Range)
