    Hello Everyone.

    my name is chris and I'm new here.
    I started photgraphy in college 2004, my current job is a designer, and this photography is now relegated to a hobby, but I enjoy it immensely.
    I own a bessa I and nikon FM2 and I carry it with me whenever I feel like travelling.

    my flickr is at : https://www.flickr.com/photos/42825843@N05/
    there is another flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/85678015@N00/

    mostly I only shoot instagram as film is getting scarce here. but I still get friends brought me rolls from US time to time.

    nice talking to you!

    Welcome to APUG!
    You can buy film on internet as well. Cheap B&W film from China is also available on Ebay.
    Have fun!

    Welcome to APUG! I like the stuff you posted to Flickr - seeing your Angkor photos brings back memories, as I was there in 2003.

    welcome

    people are still leaving film and sometimes darkroom kit is free

    chemicals may be difficult but you can use painkillers and drain cleaner for the developer I use,

    Welcome aboard, Chris. It's all good..Look at it this way–Instagram is a way to think about composition, so your real photographs will be better.

    Welcome to APUG, Chris. I hope you find a source for film. You might consider the Film Photography Project store—their prices are good and they ship internationally.
