    From Digital To Film

    Hello, APUG.

    I purchased my first digital SLR in January of 2007. Initially, I just wanted to capture better pictures of my son (14 months old at the time). It was immediately a slippery slope for me and I've learned a lot along the way.

    But I started to feel as if something was missing in my images. After comparing images of other photographers captured on film with my digital captures, I finally figured out what was missing. Soul. Character. So as of February 2012, I have decided to travel the 35mm film route. From this point forward, my dSLR will be reserved for times when I am working with strobes. Otherwise, it's 35mm black & white film from here on out. And, yes. I will be developing my own film. =)

    Lookin' forward to learning as much as I possibly can from the members of APUG with regard to shooting with film.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the welcome, everyone. As far as the Minolta, I have no idea why I put that in there. Perhaps I should change it to Olympus now. Hahaha!

    Welcome, mate! I haven't been here all that long and have probably bored everyone to tears already, being a garrulous old fart, but I've found, as you will, that people here are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, tolerant and willing to help. You've come to the right place!
