    Good day to each of you.

    Without going into a long history, I'm happy that I am revisting Film only this time I've been learning the darkroom myself and begin tomorrow developing.

    While some feel it's going backwards, I feel strong that I am moving forwards with my art/craft. I shoot both dSLR and Med Format (film and Digial back) and simply cannot get the dynamic range that I want and for what ever reason I simply perfer film. Also have but never really had the chance nor the time. Now I do and I will.

    I've never seen this site but after following a video from Mr. Brunner I'm glad I did. (got to love that Mr. Brunner)

    I'm really enjoying myself here and thank you.
    Tom

    Welcome from Richmond Va. I was born and raised in Toms River, NJ. Mr. Brunner does have some good videos.

    Greetings from northern NJ.

    I shoot film and digital too. I got back to film about a year ago and have made the jump from 35mm to MF and now to 4x5 (with a 5x7 back on my field camera that I have yet to use). Oh, the peer pressure :wink:

    Welcome from the Washington, DC area. I once lived in Brigantine and taught school in Hammonton. A bit of a commute, but a nice ride. Oh, and I shot kids's home portraits everywhere below the White Horse Pike to Cape May Point.

    HI Tom - welcome.
    It's a step forward. I shoot both film and digital but my digi is only when the client requires it. My personal work is film only.
    Enjoy

    Tom from New Jersey ...

    Welcome from a former "Jerseyite"

    Spent my last 15 "working" years in and around Morristown area. I'm sure you'll find this a most amiable and informative group.

    Hi Tom

    I wouldn't consider it a step foward or back, just a different direction for your art.

    Welcome from south central Missouri!

    Welcome Tom. I'm relatively close to you in Hamilton. Keep a lookout for our occasional trips out and about. We're about due for one once the weather warms up.
