    Hello from Latvia

    Hailing from Riga, Latvia.

    Found this forum through reddit's /r/analog subreddit, and really glad I did. It looks like there's tons of useful information on here.
    I've been dabbling in analog photography for a little over a year, but nothing serious has come of it, since it's pretty expensive over here. Buying and developing a roll of 120 costs me about 10€, so now I'm looking into developing myself, so I can stock up on film and just go out and shoot the format I love.

    I'm currently using the original Lubitel from 50's which I got from a flee market, but I'm looking to buy a better medium format camera in the future, because Lubitel really does feel a bit like a toy camera, that and it's not in too good of a shape. I also have a Zenit SD, but it's broken and a broken Start camera, also from the Soviet era. Definitely looking for a 35mm that works too.

    Anyways, as far as my photography itself goes, I mostly shoot streets and sometimes do little photo sessions, if I feel like doing it. Usually out of my own initiative. I've got a project where I'm documenting graffiti in Riga. I enjoy just going out and wandering around the city, looking for good spots and interesting walls. I'd describe myself more as a hobbyist than a serious photographer.

    Anyhow, glad to be here.

    Another welcome, Burkards. Analog photography should be for you, you're in the birthplace of the Minox! One of my favorite cameras.

    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.
