    Hello, I'm Annika from Scotland and I'm just getting into photography. I got a hand-me-down Canon AE-1 Program and I've shot 2 rolls so far and I love it!
    Just found this forum and thought it would be good for getting inspiration and advice so can't wait to get into discussions etc :smile:

    Hello Annika ,

    I think You are lucky because Scotland is a wonderful place for photography. I visited Scotland Waterways Webcams this morning and architecture is very pastoral and original. And there is whiskey ,
    I dont know how old are you but your way will cross with Aqua Vitae one day.
    AE 1 is an legendary camera and it takes excellent bw pictures and there is crowded fans of these cameras. Look around , You will find many to photograph.
    Kodak is an romantic film and it takes excellent pictures. Tell us what do you want to see at your pictures , and let us help you to make your goal.

    If you want to get inspiration , be a subscriber to forums and visit the galleries. Some of the pictures are excellent. And there is Middle Format , Large Format , Alternative Processes photographers and you will learn much from the galleries.

    I will send you a private message and send you the scans of legendary American photographer Ansel Adams books.

    Best ,

    Umut

    Welcome aboard, Annika. You've got a great camera to begin with. There are going to be lots of lenses you'll just have to buy. Watch out, it's addictive.

    Hi Annika. I'm also from Scotland and we are very lucky to live in such a photogenic part of the world. Shooting film gives you a different experience to shooting electronically, both in the craft of exposing the image then developing and printing it. Film also has a 'look' or quality which I don't believe digital can capture. You will learn a lot in your new hobby and hopefully enjoy the experience as you learn more and experiment. You can get a lot of great advice to help you along on the forum. Best wishes with your pictures and have a great time.
