She took photography at a public high school in Louisiana and they learned on Hasselblads - the personal property of the teacher. She would love to get back into it, but doesn't have space for a darkroom and the cost of sending out for processing is just too much for her. I told her how cheap equipment is now and encouraged her to do a bathroom setup. Then she tried to sell me a $3000 espresso maker.
Even $3,000 espresso makers take lousy photographs.
