Hello all, I have come recently to the wonderful field of photography and have alot to learn, thank you all so much for creating and participating in this forum. It is so great to get current support and information regarding analog photography in a world I thought had gone totally digital. I have no formal training, but would definately like to take a class or two. The whole interest stems from a hand-me-down Minolta x-370 my mother gave me. I now have an x-700, still not top of the line, but I rather love it. Its the perfect thing for a poor student/restaurant worker like me. I guess that's a sufficient introduction. Thanks again for all the great info, Bradd Cluckey.
