    Hello to all my name is Charlotte. I am a high school student interested in photography. I've been shooting digital for about two years. Recently I have been interested in shooting film. I haven't been able to take any courses on photography but, I informed myself on the basics from reading books and internet articles. I hope to take some courses in the near future and to learn form others form anywhere. Right now I'm shooting a Minolta 3000i but soon a Kodak brownie hawkeye will arrive in the mail. I hope to get into a darkroom and be able to develop images that I created and to learn from others.

    Thanks for reading!
    Charlotte A.

    Welcome, Charlotte! Developing your own film and prints is a lot of fun. I've done it for years and it still seems like magic.

    Welcome! The first time you see that image emerge on the paper in the darkroom really is magic, you'll never forget that moment (seeing your first Polaroid develop is the same magic).

    Welcome to the family. If you were closer than Mars I would give you an enlarger for your darkroom(really).

    not sure where pineapple city on mars is (curiosity can shoot it) but what the heck, welcome to the club. If it is Brownie-type cameras you want, be sure to check out your local thrift stores -- many versions and they are great shooters.

    Thanks to all who have and will greet me. Well, Mars got a little boring so now I'm in a small town in Massachusetts (for now). And once again, I'm looking forward to what I will learn from this community. :smile:

    Well, Mass is a tad closer than Mars. My offer still stands. If you would like an enlarger that handlae 35mmand 6x6(120) negatives. find a eway to afford shipping and it's yours.
