I'm Michael. I was a professional photographer for years back in the days of film. Life took a different turn for awhile. Now I'm retired & getting back into it. Have been using digital cameras, Nikon, for several years & they are great. But sometimes a bit too easy maybe. I still occasionally yearn for film & a darkroom. But either way photography excites me. I'm a bit rusty but maybe not too far gone.🙂

Same situation as me, except I don’t really want a darkroom again but I still have all the equipment for processing and printing everything from 35mm - 4x5. Can’t bring myself to junk it but with an upcoming move to the KC MO area I’m not crazy about hauling it from Baltimore and continuing to store it.

Fellow Missourian, Many of us older people grew up with film and still miss it. Major changes have happened and while you may still shoot film, you may wish to catch up with photography. After DSLR, the digital revolution, came the iphone revolution (some young people only know their phones), and now we have the mirrorless cameras. Nikon is about to announce its latest masterpiece the Z9, most likely an expensive camera, and Canon has already moved up to the R5 and now the R3, both superb cameras. Depending on your budget, I suggest you invest in one of these or, if you prefer Nikon and not so expensive, the Z 6 or Z7II. If you live near a camera store, you can rent them first to try them out!
Sarantis, St. Louis

Welcome to UHH. Hobbyist here after I retired. I also started with film but switched to digital in 2008 with a P&S Nikon as I started my stint as a Dance host on cruise ships. I now have a Z6 with a D3100 backup. I shoot dancers and friends in the St. Louis area.

Welcome to UHH Michael, glad you joined us. Many, many years ago I was in the film and dark room thing. Don't think I want to go back.
Have fun and enjoy the forum.

Don
