You might want to check with The Villages photography club.

I have several film cameras, and have not used any of them for years, from movie cameras (Bolex) to 35mm to 110 and disk cameras. I will be following this thread to see what 'develops' OK sorry for the pun.

If this thread does develop, I hope we are not left in the dark.

We use our 35mm, process our selves. Problem with no basement here it’s a challenge. When I take a picture it needs to be my talent, not a camera that can make it better. Feels like I am cheating

You may want to cash out on that old gear -- try KEH. I've sold several film cameras to them, no hassle.

There are several Facebook pages for The Villages. Posters are always putting up photos from around the area. Here's a link and look for one poster named Sheldon Boyd, he puts up photos almost everyday. With all the time you have until you move, you can converse with him. There's many other as well, I just noticed about ten posters have put up photos of a rainbow from this afternoon.

Well maybe you’ll dust off a few and take them out for photo walk someday. If we can connect when we get down there I’ll skip you a few rolls to start with. All the best.

Not sure what that means? The camera can only shoot what you want it to shoot. How you post process makes it look how you want it to look. How you use your chemicals and light gives you the look you want, same as post processing software gives you the look you want. The capability of the digital cameras can only enhance your talent, they can't replace it.

Yep, all true. I try not to get hung up on what' best. What's best for me may not be what's best for you. Just looking to use film and alternative processes as creative tools, and looking to find those who enjoy the same.

Thank you for the link, although, I am no longer a FB user. Life is so much nicer without it. But I will keep my eyes open for Sheldon's work.

It's been a long time since I've developed my own film. Maybe you can give me a refresher course when we get relocated to TV. I would be happy to share some of my photo shills as well.
