    Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. I'll definitely post some images soon. I've spent a lot of time the past two weeks remaking my drum scans using some of the techniques and software I've acquired in the digital realm. I forgot to mention I'm a non-traditional college student studying Environmental Policy & Communications. I plan to graduate in December and hope to get back into photography full-time.

    Lord bless you, LightCraftsman guy. You have made the right decision. If you're like me, this return to your roots has been gnawing at you for a while? I came back several years ago (both film and vinyl) and I'll never return to the ones and zeros.

    Yeah, this has been gnawing at me for a while. Digital was great for motorsports photography and shooting music festivals, but the fine detail just isn't there for landscape photography, at least not with anything I can afford. The idea behind being a pro photography is making money at this craft, and digging myself into a $30,000 hole to sell landscape photos makes no sense. I always missed my Hasselblad*. I love the simplicity of using it, and how it makes me slow down and think about composition and light. I also like having a high-quality lightweight system that does not need batteries.

    I'm taking a course this semester taught at Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve in Austin. We'll be in the field researching how deer are impacting the preserve, so I'll have a lot of time to take photos while I'm working on the class. We have to make a poster at the end of the semester, and I want to have two or three killer photos for that. Might even pop for drum scans to get the best quality.

    Film is not as convenient as digital, but when I got a 16x20 print made from a slide I shot of my father fishing behind his cabin in Montana in 1999 I knew I made the right choice selling the EOS gear and going back to film. I have a Sony RX-100 that is plenty good for my other needs. I shot a press conference for Environment Texas today, and even at ISO 1600 that little Sony did an excellent job: better than my old Canon 40D at that ISO. It's an impressive pocket camera.

    *My wife is happy that I am no longer whining about missing the Hasselblad.
