My name is Stephanie and I'm a film camera junkie. My love affair with photography started with film at a decently young age. My uncle gave my sister a camera and, since she wasn't as interested in it as I was, I pretty much swiped it and claimed it as my own. A cheap point-and-shoot 35mm camera that I still have to this day took some of the first photos that I can actually say are worth anything. I used that one for years until I got really interested in getting more stuff and went digital...three times. I couldn't find a camera that suited my taste: I love shooting low-light as well as available light photos and point and shoot digitals just aren't good for that. I threw in the towel with digital because I couldn't afford what I really needed to take the photos I want and went with a manual film SLR. I fell in love. I now have 11 cameras including the old point and shoot, 6 of them in various states of being usable. I am getting up a good collection and I plan to get some more to add to it. I love the feel of older cameras because I hate the feel of plastic ones. My favorites that I have so far are my Canonet 28, Voigtlander Vito CLR, my Nikon, a Canon Demi, as soon as I get it so that it actually works past 1/500th of a second, a Yashica MG-1. I'm slowly fixing up a Meopta Flexaret, an Olympus Pen EE, an Argus C4, and Argus C3, A Bosley B2, and a Bilora Bella. I'll be working on adding a Leica M3 and Summicron to that kit as well as an Olympus XA, Yashica Lynx 14E, and a Canonet GIII QL17. When I'm not taking photographs or working on the cameras I do a lot of reading, writing, and walking. I generally take a camera with me wherever I go. I also like to do web design, digital art, and collage. I also love to cook and wouldn't mind owning a restaurant someday. I plan to go to a culinary school. So hi.
