    I feel like you'll like working with digital more. I think the big deal for me (since I wound up getting a used Canon EOS film body for about $30 and have shot one roll total) is with digital, you can go take 100 or even 1,000 shots in a day and see exactly where you made mistakes or where you can improve, whereas doing that with film gets expensive...quickly. If you take the basics from the film class (juggling the three factors, composing shots) and apply them to using a digital body in full manual mode, you'll make strides really easily.

    I'm sure your artistic skills in other forms helped out with the photography class too. It's only partially a mechanical activity, the rest is really learning how to take what you see and make it appear as an image. I'm sure a lot of the rules of composition come much more naturally than to me

    Just in case you didn't know, I have been a hobby photographer for almost ten years. I've only used digital until this class.

    Let me know if you want to waste several days looking at photos and I'll link to some albums.

    Taking another photo class right now where the assignment is to document a small town. I picked a town called Cameron, population: 427.

    I don't suppose it's where the brewers of Cameron Porter are located...

    No they're in Oakville.
