I'm 16 and from Northern Virginia. I toyed around with my grandfather's old 35mm SLR earlier in the year and became interested in learning how to use it properly. He gave it to me with his blessing and it's been my main interest ever since. I'm not a good photographer by any means but I love it and I've got quite a long time to improve.
I shoot with:
Zeiss-Ikon Maximar 107/1
Various really cheap cameras
I've got no darkroom experience but that'll change soon; I'm going to go heat up the water to mix up some D-76 after I type this. I use Efke sheet film in the Maximar and I want to be able to process it on my own. Here's to improvised darkrooms in the basement bathroom.
Anyway, I hope to find friends here and learn a lot. I'm eager to learn all I can, and spend most of my free time reading, experimenting, and studying to learn more and more. I'm glad to be here and I hope a lot of good comes from this. Looking forward to meeting you all.
