    Hi!

    I'm Dave, and I'm 24 years old.

    I've been shooting digital for the last 5 or so years, first with a 350D before trading it for a 400D. Now I've moved onto film, which started with a Hasselblad 500 C/M before moving into toy cameras such as the Diana and recently the Diana Mini.

    I'm not at the stage of developing my own black and white rolls yet, but I hope to start doing that soon.

    So hi!

    Hi Dave. Enjoy the journey - it is even more fun when you start processing your own films.

    G'day Dave from not-so-distant Geelong,
    Yep, film is the way to go, irrespective of B&W, colour or whatever else you can dream up.

    EDIT: Marc: why is your avatar a picture of a brain in a fishbowl? :surprised:

    Gary - I shot that for a poster at work... I've been telling folks it's my "actual brain"... In reality it's probably too large to be mine.

    Greetings and welcome to the forums.
    Processing and printing your own films, especially Black and White, is a great past-time.
    The Melbourne Camera Club ,in South Melbourne , has a "Traditional Darkroom Printmakers Group " ,meeting monthly in our own darkroom. ( www.melbournephoto.org.net ) I am from Melbourne also, there are plenty of us around. ... Cheers Barrie B.

    Hi and welcome from Sydney. You are the same age I was when I developed my first roll of B&W film and made my first print. A wonderful life full of rich tones awaits you.
