Hey, new to the forum

Hey everyone,

Ive been lurking around here for a while, finally signed up since I was using the excellent Zorki 4 CLA thread to trouble shoot mine.
Ive been shooting for a couple years now, mostly film. My wife and I inherited a Nikon D300s that we used for general family stuff but it never really sparked anything in me. Then I was given a Nikon EM and that really woke me up to photography.

Two years ago my wife gave me a Zorki 4 that she got from Oleg at OkVintageCamera and its been my constant companion ever since. I have several other film cameras, but the Zorki is the one that goes everywhere.

I mostly shoot BW and develop at home now, the cost and wait time from the drug store is too high for the amount I shoot.
Here is a picture I took whilst waiting for my sons bus, shot on RolleiRetro80s and stand developed in rodinal 1:100

If this was an entire British forum, I'd be able to comment on that without risk of being banned...
