    Hello everyone!

    Boy am I glad I found APUG. It's hard to find a place to chat about film photography without a horde of people encouraging me to get with the times and shoot digital.

    Anyways! I'm Stephen, a hobbyist of about three or four years now. I started digital and worked my way towards film. I found that with digital, I was using all that automation as a substitute for knowing how to use ISO, shutter speed, and aperture to arrive at a creative exposure. And because I'm a sucker, if the camera has that automation, I have a hard time switching it to manual. So I went and got a Mamiya M645 and Pentax K1000 to really learn about exposure without the temptation of letting the camera do all the work for me.

    I really enjoy shooting film and I'm looking forward to hanging out here.

    See you around
