    Hello from Central Illinois!

    I'm a downstater, have been doing photography as a hobby for a while now. Been mostly using digital SLR stuff, but I am wanting to get into film. I remember using film as a kid, and it was immense fun, even with a crappy plastic point and shoot. (I think my parents still have it, I'll have to find it!) Anyway, I have a Pentax K1000, quite an early model, with a good set of lenses. I plan on doing some of my own developing, probably do mostly B&W, maybe a little color. This site was mentioned by a youtuber showing a demo of developing some 120 B&W, and it was entertaining and informative, so I figured I would check this place out.

    I think you will enjoy it here.

    It's good to see some Illinois guys here. What do you guys shoot for landscapes around here? This flatland seems dead sometimes.

    Greetings!!! Gotta love DIY b&w - i'm a n00b with it as well, but it's great fun. Film photography has that extra "something" to it - sorta like reading an actual, physical in-print book (contrasted with an electonic/e-book).

    Oh yeah, i'm from West Michigan also though currently in snowy Sarajevo, Bosnia.

    dhek - where are you from? I'm 'based' out of Spring Lake.

    Good Morning, Trevis,

    Welcome from southwestern Illinois, just across the river from St. Louis.

    Welcome aboard from foggy, cloudy Tazewell County, Illinois!

    As for landscapes, the area around Starved Rock and Matthiessen State parks is pretty scenic. So is Southern Illinois once you get south of Carbondale.
