    Hello from TX

    Hello everyone.....

    Just introducing myself to this huge forum and community....there is so much reading I need to do....

    I joined because I really need some guidance and resources on shooting with film. I recently purchased a canon t2 to get me started and yesterday I went to my local pharmacy to get CR2 batteries (ouch super expensive) and a roll of 35mm film.

    I've owned a DSLR for about 2.5 years now; its been a great way to learn the ins and outs of using manual controls. I usually shoot in manual all the time now.

    I feel its time to move onto something less forgiving such as film. And what I mean is no instant gratification which obviously requires a little more thought before just blindly hitting the shutter and hoping for the best.

    I do record music as another hobby and there is no way in hell you can beat analog devices for certain applications. The warmth of real tubes and real amplifiers vs. plugins and simulators is no contest in my opinion.

    This is another reason I want to use film. Sure digital is great for alot of things but I'm sure film still kicks its ass when it comes to retaining the analog vibe.

    Anyways enough rambling..... and thanks for reading

    Welcome to Filmland. It's so big, you'd think it was from Texas too.
    Thank you.

    Howdy from the heart of the Pa. wilds, I used to live just outside Austin, my wife's from Temple. You have come to the best place on the planet(if not the solar system)to learn about film.
