    Hello there!

    Hi people!

    I'm fairly new to analog photography, but when I started it last year, I immediately fell in love with the more tactile approach and the fact you actually have to think about what you're doing before you take a photo (when you don't want to sob about the shots that are pretty much worthless) so I have become a film aficionado in virtually no time!

    Obviously I did some digital photography before and have shot a bunch of rolls on film cameras before those days, but even though I liked it, I never got quite carried away with it. That was until I heard of Holgas, I bought a 120CFN shot a couple of rolls and haven't stopped ever since! (budget permitting that is) I dug up the old Minolta 7000AF we had lying round here and the Polaroid Image, shot with those too and just loved it.

    My next steps, hopefully, would probably be to get a proper medium format camera (Hasselblad, Mamiya or something like that - saving up for it) and to set up a bit of a darkroom for myself. Bumped into this forum whilst on the look for info about that last point so I thought to sign up and say hello, and hopefully be able to either contribute or get some of my questions answered

    More on me: I'm 23 and live in Belgium and my other main addiction is music, mainly Prog rock, (post) punk and Krautrock. Anything weird and experimental usually can get me going though I really love all sorts of stuff!

    Cheers!

    Z.

    Hey there Mr.Z.
    Weird and experimental you will definitely find here and as much as tactile as any Internet forum can get.
    Do share your photos with us, your choice of cameras and of course your avatar, is at the least intriguing.
    And yes, forcing you to be in the moment of the photograph and not being able to delete your capture,
    is what truly separates film from digital.

    Why thank you! My avatar is Peter Gabriel when still in Genesis performing Apocalypse in 9/8 from Supper's Ready from Foxtrot (sorry to go all prog-geeky there), way before I was born ;-) But I was lucky to see one of the Musical Box's (an excellent PG era Genesis cover band) last shows near here in Brussels, was extremely impressed, especially by that bit!

    Most of my analog work can be seen on my Flickr page, though the ones I'm really happy with only start at the bottom half of the page.

    Here are some I am really quite pleased with: one, two, three

    Hi Z, welcome from across the North Sea. The Musical Box are excellent, not so much a tribute band, as a reincarnation!
