Hello Sam, I'm another newby, though I wish I could say I was only 19...try doubling it and adding a few
Please don't think I'm patronising but I'm really glad to see youngsters like you getting into traditional photography. From what I generally see around me, most of your generation only seem interested in iPhones (etc). If they talk at all about film-photography, then they discuss it in a way which makes it sound like an artefact from Noah's Ark, not something which was very easily the primary medium until around 2005.
