Man ohh man! Just found this site! WOW! I feel like I finally came home!
Been shooting film since '98 when I took my first nose dive into photography. The last few years, I've helped a few friends get into the craft, but they all embraced digital. They got won over by the gee-whiz factor. My shooting styles are different than my friends. Kinda hard to explain the slow finer approach with composition and exposure when they all seem to be interested in just clicking through frames as fast as they can and hope for the best. (sigh)
Anyway, it's nice to come across a forum dedicated to film based photography. For the record, I primarily shoot nature and scenics on Fuji slide film on Canon 35mm. (Although I will admit, for snapshots which involve people, I break out my digital gear - too many throwaways in my book.)
