Page 2 of 5

9. Tempe Camera Tempe camera has long been a go-to for camera repairs, new equipment, film developing and dark room rentals. The staff might be a little intimidating, so brush up on your camera vocab before complaining that "there's a weird grinding noise when you zoom with the lens thing," but as with any good resource, these people know their equipment and they're not afraid to school you on a few basics.

8. Photography 101 You don't have to be a photography major to take an intro to photography class at almost all of the local colleges and universities -- just make sure you sign up early. Classes are usually taught by tech savvy grad students who will start with the roots of their art form and teach students how to use a film camera and develop their own film.
