    Once upon a time I used to chase my twins around with a camera. Then I got back into bike racing and other things. I found I cannot do both photography and other things. It takes up a lot of mental energy. If that makes sense. But I still appreciate a great image when I see it!
    I was internet famous once too!

    Cute story and some great shots of your little ones. I suppose you still use your cameras once in a while for memorabilia's sake, just not obsessively.

    That's about right I think last year I only shot about 10 rolls of film. But I can't bring myself to sell my cameras.

    I was in a similar place with a nice collection of vintage film cameras. Last year, I noticed that there was a camera show/swap in town and I looked up at the old Canon & Contax rangefinders gathering dust, and I finally cut them loose. Still have some medium & large format stuff to unload, and now I'm using a Powershot G15 that I picked up recently, takes nice pics:

    I feel humbled by your pictures guys. The ones posted by KoY are absolutely extraordinary.

    Here's one from a recent trip to Chiang Mai

    Nice work SeamasterLux! Were both of those shot handheld in available light?

    Thanks! Yes indeed, no flash. Only ambient available light and given that both were at a night market, it's very varied but often tungsten light

    You're too kind [​IMG]

    Sort of related to this thread, how hard and costly is it to learn developing, scanning and printing film?
    Would really like to get into analog photography but developing film seriously costs a fortune here.

    More fun than hard, I'd say. And fairly easy to jump from digital, if you already pay attention to how shadows and light behaves in you pictures.
    Not that costly, if you start with 35 mm BW film. I order my film and chemicals, from fotoimpex and macodirect in germany and have them send to Denmark.

    Large format is amazing. I wish I could afford a digital full frame back.
    I may go to a digital hassleblad due to costs.
    I'm not anti digital but how some people here can claim digital compacts are better than medium format or large format worries me.

    For black and white?

    Developing = cheap (Jobo tanks, for example don't even require a dark room)
    Scanning = expensive because you have to buy a scanner
    Printing = Not that expensive but depending on what you want quite hard

    For colour
    Developing = a bit more expensive, much harder (water needs to be at a specific temperature or the colours don't come out)
    Scanning = see above
    Printing = incredibly finicky, very, very, very few photographers have a colour darkroom (Missy Prince is the only one I can think of)

    Thought if you're at University I'd bet they have these services and equipment in some form somewhere. At the very least a scanner that would do the job.
    I've never read anyone going digital hassleblad 'due to costs'!! The thing is still, what, $15k+???

    ...and horses for courses. I love film but I'm getting a bit sick of how many frames I miss, I think I'd get a few more with digital. Though maybe I'm wrong. I should maybe buy an external light meter.

    Yeah they are expensive, but shooting 5x4 and scanning is very expensive.
    I like to print large. As you may see my work isn't about passing moments more about moments experienced. So missing shots doesn't really worry me.
