    Hi my names is Caleb and I am a 16 year old sophomore in high school who just was just recently intrigued by film photography by the Photography 1 class in school. The first year is dedicated solely to teaching the use of film cameras. I fell in love with it. I dug around in the garage looking for my Mom's old camera she used in high school and found her 35mm Chinon CE-4. In class we use Ilford HP5+ Delta Professional. I've had a great time experimenting and the dark room, taking shots and I've exceeded past the rest of my class. My intrigue has brought me here, so that I can learn more about SLR photography and hopefully WOW my teacher and classmates. There's a few things that I've been wanting to try out, the concepts of double exposure and light painting. If anyone could assist me in sharing their knowledge with a young photo novice it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for having me.

    Welcome, Caleb. You can use the search function, I'm sure that double exposure and light painting have been discussed. If you can't find what you need, simply ask!! Again, welcome, always good to see high school students using film!!

    Welcome to APUG from Central Illinois. You can learn a lot here. We even have an engineer who retired from Kodak a few years back. His name appears on several EK patents.
