    Hello,

    Well I spent years taking photos and developing all kinds of great things.
    Then I went digital, honestly it killed my love for it. There seemed like such a lack of wanting to capture the world. I have spent a large amount of this decade not behind my camera.

    A camera has been that gadget on my phone and I hated it.

    So I get a call from my father telling me that there is a package coming.

    I get it and I find one of his MF in it a Mamiya C220 with 3 lenses and an old light meter.

    I think I may have something to say again.

    Hopefully I can come here and post a few pics and get some feedback as I get back into my first real love.

    What a great story! :thumbup: I hear from a lot of people who "go digital" and then find it's just lacking for them. You're not alone.

    Sounds like you have lucked up into a great MF system! Welcome to TPF - looking forward to seeing your work. :D

    Welcome to the forum, and glad to "hear" you got your voice back. :) We often put down the thing we love, sometimes it just takes a little spark to get started again. (pun intended). After you are all warmed up, please share some of your voice with us.

    I can understand that...but I can't say I've experienced it. I wish I could have done darkroom stuff. But honestly, with digital, I treat my post processing as my darkroom time...and work at it just like I would if it was film. You can't just take pictures and print them and hope...

    Glad you found a love again, though. MF looks like lots of fun.
