I was fortunate enough to, or at least I had the money, start out with digital photography.
I have learnt to hate it.
I now spend far too much time in front of the computer and too little time taking good quality images. I never used to place enough effort into getting an image right in the first place and relied far too much on computer generated manipulation.
I have the honor to announce, on this very day, that I have given up digital photography! My Nikon F6 with its fantastic features has become my best friend and 'special' images will be shot on my trusted Mamiya RB 67. Quality will be placed at the forefront and quantity is a banned word.
So, if you want masses of pictures quickly: GO AWAY and don't come back!
If you want quality, be prepared to wait, as film processing takes time and effort by a specialist.
