    Smile hello

    My name is Greg and I am from the great state of Georgia. I am an old dog wanting to learn new tricks. That's why I'm here. Most of my pictures are just of my kids. But I want to start doing some more serious and creative things. My goal is to sell some prints in a local Antique Mall. Not so much for money, but fun. I will send a picture in from time to time, I hope.
    I currently use a Yaschica FX-103 that I have used for many years. The only filters I carry is a UV protector and a polarizer. But I just bought a Canon Rebel 2000 film camera that I want to learn to use.
    You guys shoot some killer pictures. I hope that you can help me get better.

    Nice to have you aboard Greg. The best way to use this site is to post pictures. A lot of us have improved our images by leaps and bounds over the time we have been members here at PR, no reason you can't do the same. But you have to show us what your doing to benefit from our help.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Welcome Greg! Glad to have you here.

    We film shooters are growing smaller in number. Seemingly by the day. Let's see some shots from that Yashica!

    Greg... I too live in Rome and I know the antique mall you are speaking of (I think). I also shoot film and work at Berry College's darkroom. Glad to see you here.
