I've been getting back into film photography again after taking a bit of a digital break. I learned to shoot with a k1000. I later went to Nikon before selling it all. I still have the digital camera and it's still fun to use, but there is something I used to enjoy about film that just isn't replicated by shooting digital and editing on a computer. I picked up another k1000 on ebay and I'm looking for a few lenses for it. When I was learning to shoot, I felt stifled by the 50mm. I later picked up a 28mm sigma for it, and that helped a lot! It's been more than 25 years since I first learned photography and I'm finally at a point where I understand how to get what I want out of a shot. Now that I know what I'm doing, I'm going back to where I started and hopefully I'll do it right this time! Anyway, I'v picked up a K1000 and just for fun I've bought a recesky camera and a blackbird fly camera. I plan on either buying or building a pinhole camera this year too. I plan on shooting mostly black and white and developing it myself. I think I'll just scan the negatives, because I don't really have a good spot for a dark room. At the moment I'm looking for a few lenses for the K1000. I'm going to start with a 35/2.8 (if I can find one!).

I need to figure out how to post pictures. I have a lot from the 'old days' before I sold off my original gear. It may be a little while before I get some from the new gear. We no longer have a proper camera shop in Cape Coral. So, I'm going to have to mail order all my developing chemicals and film. Hopefully I'll score a lens soon. The K1000 i picked up was a body only.
