Hi all. I'm not very good at introductions, and I usually don't like to draw attention to myself... but in an online forum I kind-of don't have much of a choice, huh? (:
My name is Alysia and I'm a New Jersey native studying in Newcastle-upon-Tyne for my Fine Art degree. Over the course of the last few months I've been taking analogue photography seriously enough to dedicate my whole practice to it. It's always something I've really enjoyed, but I had convinced myself that I was a painter and a hobbyist photographer until my tutor nearly smacked me. ...I guess I'm not much of a painter after all. Hah.
Currently I'm using 4x5, 35mm, and 120mm film. I'm not sure how much detail I'm supposed to go into during an introduction so I'll just leave off on that.
I'm very new to the world of analogue and I'm hoping that this forum is a place that I can learn and grow, as well as meet other film photographers (the darkrooms in uni always seem to be empty!)
