Back to world of 35mm film

Just bought a Spotmatic. First time using a camera like this in almost 30 years. It brought back a lot of good memories from high school in photography class where I was the only one who had their own camera (ok, it was really my dad's - he got it just before I was born). I recently got the photography bug after many, many years away. I got a DSLR a few months ago and then decided I wanted an old 35mm camera, specifically the Pentax Spotmatic (same model that my dad has). Looking forward to using it.

Welcome to the forums! The past 6 months I’ve been in regression, shooting almost exclusively and developing film. Not sure what’s wrong with me?

Anyhow, there are several very active film threads here. Be sure to share your photos!
