    autumnbokeh - introduction

    Hello! I'm new here. I'm sixteen years old and new to film photography. I'm fascinated by a number of analog formats (one of my most prized possessions is a VHS camcorder manufactured in 1987), but haven't really worked with film much due to the expense of having it printed.

    However, my income has grown a bit over the past few months, so I'm permitting myself to begin exploring the mysterious ways of 35mm. I particularly like the look of expired film, poorly stored with all kinds of idiosyncrasies.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and learning things I never thought I'd know.

    xoxo autumnbokeh xoxo

    A warm welcome to APUG!. For C-41 film you could go to Costco, they're reasonable. You can develop B&W by yourself.

    Welcome!

    Welcome! Nice to see younger people picking up film. Seems like a lot of the shops these days set out expired c-41 film and I have found a lot of it in convenience stores lately. You could probably get it at a discount.

    Hello and a welcome from further up the Left Coast. If "experimentation" is your interest, be sure to check out - and join in the dialogue - of the various specialized groups. Looking for expired film? Check out the for sale/for trade threads on the site; you can find some interesting items from time to time (there is also that auction site that folks here seem to have a love/hate relationship with...).
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.
