Photographing with an analogue SLR is like drawing directly in ink – there is no undo option. I always let my photography students make a few analogue photos using these very manual cameras, partly to make them concentrate on getting the focus right and understanding the light meter, and partly because working in a darkroom explains a few things about Photoshop. Before they go out to shoot some pictures for the first time, I always remind them that they have to advance the film before they capture the next image. Their answer is always “Why?”.

Poor things, they are so young. They never knew anything but digital… : )
