I remember 2003 (it's been 10 years? oh my!), I was still shooting my trusty F100 - all my friends had gone digital, but I held on! It was that Christmas, that I received a D2H from my parents (combined family present for xmas and b-day of that year) - I was SUPER excited to finally go digital.
Later in Spring/Summer of 2004, I also decided to invest in a set of retiring Hasselblads from a studio going digital. I was a very happy camper, doing a lot of portraits on film, both 35mm, and 2-1/4", and a lot of sports and events for my university newspaper on my D2h. Eventually, started teaching a mini-courses in photography in 2005 - both for students, student groups, and faculty/staff groups interested.
My hobby was pretty much self-supporting - from head shots and art portfolio shoots, to little courses, I was making enough income to pay for film, developing, and the occasional lens purchases. (Not including the Hassies)
Life was much simpler then… and school (undergrad) wasn't nearly as demanding as it is now (Doc program), and I had so much more time to shoot! Ah… the good'ol'days…
