    Welcome to the dark side.

    You can use strobes just fine with 35mm film, you know. But better yet, if you're hooked on the soul and character of film, you need to try medium format. It's not harder, in some ways easier, and "can" (doesn't always, but that's a different story) blow 35mm quality out of the water. Depending on your subjects, then there's large format, great for landscapes, still lifes and posed deliberate portraits, not so good for subjects that might go away in the next 10 minutes or are moving.

    I shoot all three depending on subject, mood, available time etc.

    Thanks again for the welcome.

    The only reason why I still plan to strobe with digital is because I tend to fire off a lot of shots when experimenting. It would be a lot more cost-effective for me to experiment with digital than film.

    As far as other film formats are concerned, I plan to explore them. I also have a Hasselblad 500 that I inherited from my uncle. It's the same camera he used to shoot my parents' wedding back in '72. But for the time being, my focus will be 35mm.

    Welcome! a flash meter is a good investment so you don't have to waste shots to determine lighting.

    Sounds like a plan. Medium format is not difficult at all, but with 36 shots per roll 35mm can be a lot cheaper to play with.

    Welcome! I also tend to shoot digi with strobes but there's no reason not to think of it like Polaroid proofing. Once you get the lighting setup and exposure down, shoot with the Hasselblad. Have fun

    I find myself using digital for exactly that - proofing. I'm also using it right now to play around with filters for B&W photography so I know which filters to get to get the look I want in different situations (limited budget, unfortunately).
