Still Rockin film and Pentax in Seattle

Hello All,

I do street photography.

I've been rockin' Pentax film SLRs since 1995. First the K1000 then the MX then the two LXs I've owned and used since then. The K1000 is gone but the MX has stayed. It was only when I purchased my first good digital camera (canon) in 2004 that I found a very creative use for Photoshop.

Lately I purchased a Ricoh GR which is so unassuming as to be unnoticed. Perfect for the streettogs. But I still shoot plenty of film. And Photoshop is king in both workflows. I live in the greater Seattle area. Perhaps not the capital of street photography but we have angry clouds year around punctuated with sun breaks that can feel like a punishment (cosby's take.)

Welcome to the forum, your street photography has a similar style to mine, I use 20mm focal length, you use?

Welcome aboard! You're not alone still doing film - I'm all digital now, though. And I have resisted the GR so far...
