I'm 50. Growing up all there was was film and we always had some sort of camera...I remember we had a series of Polaroids. I had some exposure (pardon the pun) to the darkroom though summer camp and a friend in middle school who had one. I started shooting serious digital in December and then saw what people were doing with film when attending an art fair. Learned some more listening to podcasts and decided I wanted to try it. I'm set up now to process b/w film and I have an enlarger that was given to me which as soon as I can figure out some sort of table I want to try some b/w prints.
