    I was directed to this site from member KenS, and had to sign up straight away! I have to say, so far, I like what I see! I have never used large format, but I am just getting back in to 35mm, and starting to process my own. I have been away from analogue for about 15+ years since I got my first small digital. I have always liked the thought of large format shooting and printing, but have never had the opportunity to try it. I am really enjoying my renewed excitement for analogue, and one day hopefully, will get the chance to try 5x4!

    Anyway, I hope to learn and contribute if at all possible.

    Thanks, Garry

    Welcome Garry :) I am also very new to 4x5 and only started shooting analog again about 2 years ago, developing my first film at home just this year. I am sure you will love it!

    Isabel :)

    Thank you Isabel. I am trying to absorb as much as I can at the moment. I had a look at your website. You have some amazing images in your Portfolios. I particularly like The Forest and The Lonely Hills. Excellent and quite inspirational.

    My difficulty is in the vision. I want to shoot something that is different, not just a snapshot. That is part of the attraction of Analogue. A limited number of frames available, forcing me to think and spend more time composing each shot. I imagine this to be compounded by using LF.

    Thanks again for the welcome,

    Garry
