    sorry to pick at what you said, but i think that lomo / lo-fi / holga users ARE real photo users. there is no difference between "them" and the people who spend $4K on
    a ebony 4x5 camera. "they" just don't buy into the whole "its gotta be expensive to be a camera" thing.
    for people who don't "get" the holga thing, they should take a look at the work of victor milin. his holga / lo-fi work is mind-blowing ...

    56, and started collecting cameras at 40. That got me into mixing and designing my own developers. I turned 13 in 1969, so I caught the end of the age of innocence in America. Started photography as a child with a Diana that a travelling salesman gave away.

    59 last November. I've been shooting film since age 12 and developing my own film and prints since age 14 when I built my 1st darkroom. 5' x 8' is plenty of room to have fun in. All of my current 35mm cameras are Minolta, SRTs to Maxxums.

    Yes all photo users have "real" cameras, but if you are going to take a picture that's so blurry it looks like a painting, just paint... LOL just my opinion, I prefer sharp images to foggy ones most of the time, it's all preference.

    I actually got my start with non-snapshooting using medium format - I had a Seagull 203 folding rangefinder (see the other thread about them), then moved to a Hasselblad, before finally getting into 35mm with a Contax 167MT. Now, gear-wise I'm all over the place with everything from a Contax G1/G2 outfit, an RTS III when I need an SLR, to a 14x17 when I want to do SERIOUS portraits. I got started in film just before the dawn of the consumer digital age, and I can remember selling the Olympus and Kodak digital cameras that would get so hot they'd almost burn your hand after taking a dozen images (I worked in a camera store from 1994-1999). Ah, the good old days.

    Victor Milin's images (http://www.vmilin.com) are very good. It appears that Holga/Lo-Fi can work (for me!) because it allows the photographer to simplify images by removing extraneous detail.

    I'm 65 and didn't start photographing seriously until about 5 years ago. I have a small darkroom in the basement and prefer film for black-and-white because silver-gelatin prints look so good. Digital is great for color though.

    I am continually surprised to find my self 'middle aged'. I still think in terms of eight or so but am having to start thinking of myself as old.
