    Greetings!

    Hello to all my name is Charlotte. I am a high school student interested in photography. I've been shooting digital for about two years. Recently I have been interested in shooting film. I haven't been able to take any courses on photography but, I informed myself on the basics from reading books and internet articles. I hope to take some courses in the near future and to learn form others form anywhere. Right now I'm shooting a Minolta 3000i but soon a Kodak brownie hawkeye will arrive in the mail. I hope to get into a darkroom and be able to develop images that I created and to learn from others.

    Thanks for reading!
    Charlotte A.

    Welcome to APUG Charlotte.

    I think you may be the first APUG member who admits they are from Mars .

    Hope you enjoy it here - don't hesitate to ask questions if you can't find the answers you need by browsing the forums.

    Welcome, Charlotte! Developing your own film and prints is a lot of fun. I've done it for years and it still seems like magic.

    Welcome! The first time you see that image emerge on the paper in the darkroom really is magic, you'll never forget that moment (seeing your first Polaroid develop is the same magic).

    Welcome to the family. If you were closer than Mars I would give you an enlarger for your darkroom(really).

    not sure where pineapple city on mars is (curiosity can shoot it) but what the heck, welcome to the club. If it is Brownie-type cameras you want, be sure to check out your local thrift stores -- many versions and they are great shooters.
