I just found the forums from a friend mentioning the site on another site I regularly use. So my introduction...
My name is Daniel, I'm 17 and live in Sydney (Australia) I have been interested in photography for a number of years now. I began shooting on digital simply because that's what I had access to, I always planned to get a film SLR though.
So I got myself a nikon F55 and shot a few rolls of color slide, was nice enough to really think about each photo and get an entire roll back at once, still wasn't exactly what I was looking for though. I got a few rolls of Tmax 100 and shot those and developed and printed them myself. That is the moment I fell in love with film. For me it is all about controlling the photos from shooting to finished print. I like to use black and white for it's simplicity.
I now shoot with a bronica SQ mostly, but occasionally a 35mm SLR (F60). I do shoot digital as well, but film is my format for when I just want to go out and shoot to really enjoy it.
I look forward to spending time here and getting to know you all!
