    Hello from Raleigh, North Carolina

    Hello!

    I only got seriously into photography at the beginning of this year, but you might say it has become an obsession!

    While I did get started with a DSLR, I found it to be an excellent training tool for what was to come. It allowed me to understand how exposures worked, lighting, composition. It all came together in a way where I could have instant feedback and then try again with lessons learned from my earlier mistakes.

    These days my main camera is a Mamiya C330, and I also shoot a Minolta X-700. Shortly, I will be developing my own B&W film at home but for now I use a local lab.

    Once my home dark room is up and running and I've got the hang of it, I'd also like to try my hand with a 4x5 view camera.

    Someone on ModelMayhem.com forums pointed to this site as potentially being a much friendlier place for film photographers to hang out. Film discussions over on MM invariably turn into a digital vs. film debate in short order.

    Interesting, a digital camera training for a C330. Kinda backwards from the norm.

    Welcome.
    Thank you.

    Welcome from western Canada. I think I was in Raleigh once. Isn't Duke University located there? Beautiful city.

    Close; Duke is in the nearby city of Durham, which is one county over from us but considered part of the same metropolitan region. We've got quite a lot in the way of universities around here.

    I've done some d***tal shooting at the gardens they have at Duke, which are quite lovely in the springtime. The city of Durham has a lot of cool old brick industrial architecture left behind from when it was a booming tobacco town, and interesting social dichotomies where relatively wealthy people live next door to relatively impoverished people. Makes for some interesting street shooting opportunities.
