"I've been captured by film and I can't seem to get away from it. I joined hoping ...I can grow in my own."
You've come to the right place.
There is a great deal to be learned here from a good bunch of people (from around the world.) I have been at this for over 30 years and still have a lot to learn and do so here at APUG form both young and old.
There are those who post a lot, those who just read a lot, and apparently, those who do a great deal of both. Good luck in finding where you are comfortable.
I look forward to seeing your images.
greetings from Norway!
