    Hello all,

    My name is Tyler and I hail from South Carolina. A little about myself...

    i currently attend the College of Charleston, majoring in Accounting. Then I will hopefully be getting my JD and MBA afterwards. I've just recently gotten into film photography. A member on another photography forum donated a Fuji AX Multi Program with 2 primes to me. I liked it a lot. So much so that I decided to invest in more film equipment. I purchased a Mamiya 645 Pro with the non-metered prism and an 80 2.8. I also picked up a light meter. I'm excited to get my first roll back.

    Anyway, I'm glad to be here. I can't wait to learn and share with all of you :smile:

    I just drove through SC. I was going from Tennessee to Florida after I finished working at a job related convention (Tennessee to NC, NC to SC, SC to Georgia, Georgia to FL). Everywhere I went seems so much more interesting than here. I wish there was more scenery to shoot here.

    Anyhow, welcome! Hope you enjoy the medium format shooter. I just recently got my first as well and I love it.

    My daughter and I toured colleges in South Carolina back when she was in high school trying to decide. Of all the campuses we visited, the College of Charleston was by far the most beautiful. We heard, however, that it's very difficult to obtain student housing there.

    Thanks all!

    Chazzy - Thank you. It's a lot of work, but worth it in the end. At least that's what people tell me :wink:
    Jim, yes it is very crowded here. I live in town so I just stayed home :smile:
