Glad to hear from you guys. There's hardly anyone around where I live that's into photography. I've always liked taking pictures, ever since I was a kid. But I only seriously got interested in photography in the last year or two. I was always fascinated with antique cameras and I collected a couple of them that I got from thrift shops. But then I finally learned manual exposure with an Argus C3. Then I learned how to develop my own black and white film in March, and I've been hooked on it since then. I've lost track of how many rolls of film I've shot and developed since then. It's a lot of fun using these old cameras. There's something so cool about using a real metal, mechanical camera. I have several 35mm cameras, and a few TLR's now. It's amazing...all my film cameras have been around a LOT longer than me, and they still work great!
