    Welcome... By the way, I will pay you $15.00 for the Nikonos and whatever you have left from the garage sale find. That way you are free and clear of any expenditure with a $10.00 profit. You say "No"????

    i am big into art and have mental images of wat i want things to look like but i cant transfer it from my mind to paper or clay or anything. so i decided i want to try photography. i want to do it the original way. black and white photos, home developed. it doesnt seem like art when u buy a $5 disposable camera and get it developed for $3. imy problem is that i dont know where to start. what kind of camera to buy, what i need for the darkroom, what kind of film i need. im just clueless.

    Just start reading, and reading, pretty soon you'll get ideas, then the real trouble starts ;-)

    i know wat i want my pictures to look like, i know wat i want to take pictures of, i just need help on what kind of camera to get mainly. i dont want digital, i want good zoom, but other than that i know nothing about cameras. i just something i can put effort and heart into. when ur not doin the work in creating the pictures from stage 1 to the end i dont consider it to be art. i can understand taking digital pictures and modifying them and considering it to be art.

    Welcome, your majesty

    I think that everyone here, even those who have been involved in photography for decades, are constantly struggling to make their finished prints match the image that they see in their mind. Photography is a fascinating and rewarding form of creative expression that will challenge you all of your life. The more you learn, the more you realize that you don't know.

    APUG is a great resource with many very accomplished creative photographers with a huge variety of backgrounds, interests and expertise. Just lurking here will expose you to a wealth of all aspects of photographic information. Questions almost always receive quick, helpul responses.

    As far as not creating "Art" with a $5 disposable, a lot of talented photographers are doing some beautifully creative things with $10 Holga cameras.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we have a double Hello! here so welcome to both of you - jhastie from Wisconsin and queen_of_dragons2002 from lorain, ohio...BTW on the topic of creative work with a cheap camera (ok $100 is not cheap in my book) but Holga now has a version with a Polaroid back..could be pretty cool.
