    Just found this site, Decided to go back to school (semi-retirement is boring, not reccomended) and become a photographer when I grow up. (LOL) A good use by all accounts for the GI Bill. No complaints here. Will be using a Pentax K-1000 for the 35mm portion of the Photography program. Medium and Large format portions of the program will follow. And that is they say that. Glad to be aboard.

    V/r,

    Welcome to APUG, Doogie! You've definitely added a fantastic resource for your schooling by signing up here. The amount of knowledge and experience floating around on this site is pretty astounding and the willingness to answer questions still surprises me (in the nicest possible way!). I hope photography adds some fun to your semi-retirement :smile:

    p.s I do have to argue with your signature.... 75% coffee is a MUCH better dosage!

    Good luck with the educational program; nice to see you're incorporating film-based photography in your program.

    Welcome here Doogie ! and yes this is a fantastic place to learn something ! For me for example is quite difficult learn how to shoot with my Large format camera because in Italy it's rare today!
