    Hello everybody from Italia

    Here i am introducing myself,

    i live and work in Italy (near Rome), 41 years old, taking pictures from the late seventies.
    Started with a polaroid then i went through Zenith, Yashica and now Contax/Hasselblad.
    Nowaday seems like that there is no alternative to digital ("why don't you buy a good DSLR ? You will be no longer spending money on rolls") then i patiently try to explain that in order to match the quality of a MF (Hasselblad) or a Planar Zeiss 85 f 1.4 that i own at the moment i should spend thousands of euros in photographic gears and data supports (PC, hard disks, servers....) and then spending a lot of time in front of a monitor ( i already do that at work as programmer ) i prefer spending a couple of nights per month in my darkroom.
    Catching up with this site has been a great joy.
    I am not alone

    About photography.
    I do love the "old" classics.
    Robert Doisneau, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Henri Cartier Bresson, Bepi Merisio, Dorothea Lange.
    I shot mainly colour negative (35 mm) but i'm slowly moving to BW.

    Some of my pictures:

    Thank you everybody for keeping shooting on film.
    Ciao

    The reason my experience with digital only lasted eight months! (though not as a programmer).

    Welcome from England.

    Welcome to APUG. I'm a Software Engineer and rejected digital for the same reason. Best wishes from Cornwall.

    Regards Daniel
