    I recently joined a Meetup group called the Lomographers of Acadiana after my gf gave me a Diana F+ for Christmas. We've been shooting every month and I've gone Lomo & analog crazy. I've been shooting with the Diana F+, scored a Goodwill Polaroid, then bought Polaroid 600 film from Goodwill online (excellent source BTW), then got an Akira 35mm from Ebay, and my most recent hoard, woops, score is a Stren (yes, the folks who make fishing string) 110 camera. (I think its original purpose was to be thrown in your tacklebox so that you could snap a picture of the fish you caught.) I just bought 1 roll of 110 film on ebay so that I can see if my 110 camera works.

    I have a pretty decent digital camera. Canon T1i. I like my T1i, but find that the more I shoot digital, the more technique I lose. Composition, mainly. So, I came back to film and am always on the hunt for the next shot. I don't develop or scan my film. I send it to Dwayne's mainly because the turnaround is fairly quick and he's cheaper than the local folks.

    I'm glad to have stumbled across this site. Looks to be a wealth of resources here and a lot of like minded folks who want to preserve shooting with film.
