    Hello, my name is Ryan, I'm 20 years old and from a place just north of Oklahoma city called Edmond. I have shot alot of 35 for high school and college. I have an older medium format camera, yashika tlr, and am wanting to get a 4x5 view camera. I hope to learn a lot from this website because we all know that film is never going to die.

    Hi Ryan

    I was born in the city, grew up in Kansas, now live in Rolla, MO.

    Welcome to APUG, lots of talent willing to share. I've learned a lot from them.

    Mike

    Welcome from Richmond, Va! Yashica TLR might be old but it is still a great camera! Enjoy it.

    Hi Ryan, and greetings from your "neighbor" up in Kansas. Perhaps you have some red Oklahoma soil nearby to add some color to the scene this time of year. Here in Kansas, everything is pretty drab. Heck, even my red car looks drab in this gloomy weather.
