35mm camera search

April 6th, 2006 at 09:38 am

I have a penchant for new hobbies. The latest? Photography. Ever since SO gave me an awesome Olympus digital camera last year, I have been practicing and playing around with it. I'd like to move on (or is that back?) to 35mm. I'd like to learn how to use a camera with a big lens and all sorts of manual settings. I want to learn about light meters and composition and all that cool stuff.

SO has a camera, which he showed to me last night, but the light meter is broken. I've been perusing eBay (I know, I said I would take a break) and craiglist, among other places. I just want something cheap but reliable, with a lens. I don't want to spend more than $100 at this point. This can be an expensive hobby! Right now, I just want to learn.

I'm reserving books on photography at the library and I'm going to stop by there tonight to see what else I can find! I tried to get into a beginning photography class in college, but it was always full, and reserved for art majors. I'd still like to take a class sometime. I'll need a camera first.

    I took a photography class through our community schools program, much cheaper than the local college or art school. Learned lots, forgot just as much I'm afraid............but, the class was very worth the time & money I spent on it. Fun hobby and a great way to produce cheap gifts.

    If a local college offers a class, see if they'll let you "audit" it. You don't get any credits for the class, but they usually charge only 1/2 price.
