    Thanks everyone!
    Jeanette, I do belong to a local photography club. It's just the suburb I live in, but I'm right outside Chicago so I was thinking I might join a photography group there. I don't know of any good ones, but I'm sure I could find them somehow...

    Julia,

    You sound like a candidate for LF and ULF photography, especially contact printing. My bet is you'll be shooting large before you turn 20.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome aboard, Julia! I'm 17, too. Or, at least I was yesterday. Today I woke up and I was suddenly 31. What the -- ?

    Garryl, I missed your post when I was responding last. I thought [/B]I[B] was going to cry when I read your post. Thank you.
    Graeme, wait till I'm almost 20 to shoot large format??! I'll wait until my freshman year in college when I can check out a LF camera for free. So I'll maybe wait until I'm 18
    Cheryl, lol! I still see you as a 17 year old...a very skilled 17 year old. And anyway, I'm really close to my photography teacher and she is also 31...or at least will be in a week. BTW, I've always admired your work that I saw on ILP.

    Hey everyone, I'm also new to this site... and I'm also 16. I took my first b&w class through school a few years ago, and since then photography has quickly become my biggest obsession. My teachers think I'm sick because I spend at least 3x more time in the darkroom than the other students! Right now I'm just trying to have fun with photography, and explore all I can. I'm so glad I found this site, everyone seems so welcoming and excited about true photography, which is nice for a change. Thanks -Grant

    Hi Grant,
    Photography has been a life-long adventure for me. The more you learn, the more you realize that there is to learn. It never stops being interesting.
    The horizon never gets closer but your' skill and knowledge increase every day and your photographs mark your' progress.
    I wish I had a resource like this when I was 16. Ask questions and post your images to the gallery.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Neal, you are totally correct..."your skill and knowledge increase every day". I remember when I first started my prints were dark, out of focus, dusty, and pretty much everything else was wrong. A few years later and I've had my images in galleries in 2 different states. I know this is not normal, but it surely keeps you coming back, striving for more. I think I struck metaphorical gold when I picked up a camera, here's to a life long endeavor in fine art imagery. Thank you for your words of encouragement. -Grant

    Welcome Sherrie,

    I'm glad to see you are actually thinking of photography as a potential profession instead of just a hobby. Good luck with your future studies and keep us posted.

    Plus, if you ever need any ...um...assistance ...hmmmm...maybe advice or guidance is a better word?...with your assignments, you've got a bunch of internet tutors here ready to help out!

    Regards, Art.
