    Hey peeps!

    Been lurking for a bit and thought it was time to register and share some knowledge.

    Did the BFA gig (in the last century!) and majored in Intaglio Printmaking. Been shooting film since mid-80's as a serious amateur and finally made the plunge and bought my first serious DSLR.

    then -> film = Nikon FE-2
    now -> digital = Nikon D300 w/18-200mm DX lens

    I'm still wrapping my head around figuring out the digital experience. My background was mainly B&W and Kodachrome for colour. I have/had my own darkroom setup for the B&W processing/printing. Colour printing was Cibachrome, but alas *sigh*, that's gone the way of the Dodo bird.

    Still haven't decided what to use for post-processing eg: Photoshop or Nikon NX Capture. Looking forward to many comments/suggestions/critiques/fun.

    Hello and Welcome to the forum. I'm a big fan of photoshop but know nothing about Nikon NX Capture. Maybe someone with experience in both will do a comparison

    I've lived all over the province - central, northern and southern. Currently I am a few hrs. east of E-town.
