I would love to hear your thoughts on the thought below. I'm a student owning a nice S16 kit which I'm planning to use on a couple of projects. Since I'm not very experienced with shooting film I am looking for ways to practice getting the right exposures under various conditions. Unfortunately there are no film labs in my area, which led me to this thought:
Theoretically, could I practice to expose film correctly by taking 35mm pictures and directly translating it to S16 film (assuming EI/ISO are the same). I guess what I really want to ask is how close S16 film stock and 35mm photography are to each other and if there are direct links/connections when it comes to the correct exposure.
I do have an old Konica III camera (no built-in meter). I could expose with my meter and process/scan it to get an idea of how to expose the same scene with my S16 camera.
Is this idea completely off?
Thanks a lot for your time and feedback.
