Hello all.

I was an amateur photographer for about 30 years, mostly shooting outdoor and architectural. I got into portraits for a short time long, long ago. I decided to go into glamour and editorial photography professionally last year. Big transitions, both in subject matter and in going from film to digital.

I discovered this place after reading Rolando Gomez's excellent book on digital glamour. I also discovered he is a kindred spirit in choice of cameras. I shoot Olympus, and have since I bought an OM-1 back in 1976.

I'm hoping to learn a lot here. I hope I can give back as well.

Welcome.

I recently saw an OM-1 on Craigslist for, like, $50. I remember when it was introduced and became one of the top three SLRs.

More succinctly - I'm an old geezer, too.

Welcome Steve,
I think you'll find a great group of people here, and a number of us are old geezers, I started in 1977 at the age of 17. Boy do I wish they had digital back then. I'd be a lot richer today. Sometimes I feel like I spent my 20s and 30s working to pay for film and processing. Of course I didn't buy a new camera body every two years back then either, so maybe it all works out the same in the end.
