    I am 15, as I have a late birthday
    am I still still allowed?
    and am I allowed to shoot on film? I have a home darkroom where I process fibre based paper. I shoot with a Minolta SRT-101 and a Rokkor X 50mm 1.4 lens. My favourite film stock is Ilford HP5. My second favourite film stock is Kodak TRI-X.
