    Hello from deepest Essex

    I'm returning to film photography after a gap of many, many years. I used to use a Zorki 4K which was a Xmas present in the 80's.
    I no longer have the Zorki but now own two Voigtlanders, a Vito B and a Bessa. I intend to use primarily b&w film
    My brother was a big fan of analogue photography, was a member of apug, owned many film cameras, did his own developing and would preach the advantages of film over digital at every opportunity.
    Unfortunately he passed away in December and by way of a tribute to him I'm returning to film for my church architecture photography which I would usually use a digital camera for.
    It's going to be a steep learning curve but I'm looking forward to both the challenge and the results.

    Welcome Rich. Returning to film as a tribute to your brother is a nice gesture which I'm sure he would have approved of.

    If you have any queries regarding using film, this is the perfect place to ask.

    Welcome Rich.

    Your brother Andy was a great contributor here, and will be sorely missed. We hope you will get as much from APUG as Andy obviously did.

    Welcome Rich. I was very sad to hear about Andy, and so pleased to hear that you have been inspired to enter the world of film.

    Rich, a very warm welcome from western Washington State. This place is also like a family (a very big and raucous family).

    Hello and a big welcome to APUGland!
