Marina

Hello from Russia! My name is Marina, I love film photography. I'm a hobby photographer. I like history of film developing, and I always try to shoot something. My first camera was Zenit EM. Since then it's been a few years and cameras won't fit on the shelf (but it's a very small shelf). The film is intriguing, because the result is not always predictable. Always wonder what happens in the end. Glad to have been invited to participate in the event. I think this is a great opportunity to improve your skills in the company of interesting people. So I'm waiting october and the start of the course!
