    Hello!

    Hey all,

    I heard of this site from J Brunner on YouTube. His video encouraged me to buy a used camera and develop film. I had been using a digital SLR and a few Polaroids, and after seeing his video I bought a Voigtlander Brillant, a Nikon EM, and a Rolleiflex VIIs. Tonight, I experienced several firsts: I developed my first roll of film (before I had been developing "trial" rolls and junk rolls), and I printed my first few photos. It was so much fun. My poor DSLR that I got for Christmas is so underused, and my parents don't understand. In fact, they are upset.

    So, anyway; about myself. I am 20, in Photo school (actually beginning my first semester of photo in 2 weeks after 2 years of Business; counselor agreed I needed to change). I'm from North Carolina.

    I can tell I will be visiting here often.

    Welcome, you'll have made Brunner's week

    Shows the raw power of his video-making, which is pitched at the right level, not too serious and showing the fun of using film cameras and doing it yourself.

    Enjoy your self & show us some images soon.
