    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help,

    Hi Ria,

    Welcome to apug from Sydney!! I am currently doing a black and white darkroom course which is being run in the eastern subrbs by a community college.

    http://www.escc.nsw.edu.au/course/3177UTU

    It gets run every six months so keep an eye out on the http://www.escc.nsw.edu.au website as they also run general film photography course too.

    Take lots of pictures and ask lots of questions. There are a lot of people here that are both very knowledgeable and very helpful.
    Best regards.

    Thanks again.

    That's definitely the best way - especially with a camera like a Brownie.

    Have fun, Bob.

    Dear Ria,

    Consider also "Welcome to Film"
    http://www.rogerandfrances.com/photo...20welcome.html

    and "Handling 120 film"
    http://www.rogerandfrances.com/photo...oad%20120.html

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Welcome from Melbourne. I think Vanbar has a shop in Sydney. They have plenty of 120 film, which I've run through my grandmother-in-law's old box brownie. There is something fabulous about images coming from something so old and basic. Try it with colour and enjoy the uncorrected lens. As said by others, just point, shoot and learn. Not much else you can do with a brownie in a way.

    John.
