Why would you like to join this group?

I am making an effort to really dive back into photography after somewhat of a hiatus. The seduction of the darkroom has been a hard one for me to shake. I love the mingling of all senses involved - the tactile aspect of film and paper, the meditative red light and flowing water sounds, the familiar chemical smells, watching your image appear before your eyes, but it has been a roadblock to entering the digital world. I love the feeling of making art with my hands, and staring at a screen punching buttons never really felt like making art to me. So after dismantling my darkroom in my last locale move, I waned in photo-limbo for a while, not even bothering to shoot much. But now I am delving into all things digital, and I want to get out & shoot more, and hang out with other photographers. I figure this is a good way to do that.

Are you a photographer, model, MUA, or stylist?
