Welcome to APUG. Many of us actually use both film and digital, myself included. I tend to shoot film for B&W and digital for color. I actually prefer B&W for my own work, however. Here on APUG, we only talk about film/analog stuff except for rare cases where digital technology is used to support film use.
Anyway, welcome to APUG. My recommendation to you is just start using what you already have and do a lot of it.... My personal belief is that I am a photographer and photograph is what I make. Choice of gear and medium is secondary to my goal. I choose the best method available to me for a given situation.
