    Beginning analog photographer from Philly area

    Hello all, my name is Chris, a 28 year old college grad currently working in the billing dept of a webhosting/domain registration company. I just started down this track while randomly browsing during slow time. I was amazed at the pictures taken with lo-fi cameras so I ordered a Diana F+ Blackjack edition (just the camera for now as my budget did not allow for deluxe edition). I did not yet get to do any shooting with it yet because I have to wait until next payday to pick up film. I am looking forward to shooting some awesome photos and sharing my efforts to all that are interested. If any of you more experienced photographers have any advice, please feel free to share as I want to learn all that I can. Thank you advance for all of your time and attention.

    Hello Chris welcome!

    If you are on a budget sometimes you can buy expired film for cheap at camera/film shops and sometimes those rolls make for even more lo-fi looking pics!
