    Hi all!! I have been shooting portraits since November, but am not as new to photography in general. I have had only digital cameras for the past 6 or 7 years and was recently attacked by an urge to shoot film again. I picked up a mamiya about a month ago c3 and a friend gave me a canon rebel to work with my eos lenses (including a lensbaby 2.0 <3 ) and I haven't had any desire to touch the 5d ever since. I have an OM2n and 50mm f/1.4 on the way (from a member here!) and I'm lusting after a pentax 6x7...someday. I thought I would share a few of my photos from this past month. I have also been developing my own b&w film, which is so fun!! Anyway, here are a few :smile:

    Welcome to APUG

    Advice, not a criticism: If a portrait is not interesting, move closer to the subject. Change the angle it necessary.
