    Hello from Devon,UK.

    Hello everyone,Like everyone else on the site my interest is in film photography.I have the ubiquitous Digital camera but I'm drawn toward the proccess of taking photographs with film.In this respect I have no experience and in concequence a complete beginner.I've had a life long interest in looking at photography as an art form and since retiring I thought it was time to start getting to grips with the buisness of learning the art(I have a background in sculpture so I think my eye has learned to see the World with a certain slant)I've browsed the site for a couple of days and it appears to be a 'one stop shop' for everything I will need for my education in film photography,for which I am very greatful.My present 'kit' is a Leica V Lux 1 Digital, An old but pristine Praktica BX 20 with 28mm and 50mm lenses,A Canonet 28,Olympus Trip, and three vintage Medium Format cameras I had given to me,namely a Voigtlander Bess66 and two old Ensigns.So,plenty of cameras but no photographs as yet.I'm so glad I was directed toward this site.

    Best Regards Arwyn.

    Shoot a couple hundred rolls of film and report back.

    Cheers.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Welcome Arwyn,

    Have fun, the Bessa 66 seems a good place start, if you get the bug you will
    be looking for an enlarger soon!

    JON.
    I prefer it in the dark.
