Hello, My name is Steven and I'm a 38 year old novice at analog photography. Before the digital camera era I took pictures with a 35mm camera, but nothing special. A while ago I made a large format camera. It's got an 8cm magnifying glass for lens, a DIY mechanical iris and DIY bellows. The camera doesn't have a shutter, because I didn't need one for the idea I had. Sounds pretty vague, but I'll explain it some time. I just found out I can't link to pictures before I post 5 posts. Pictures will follow another time. I've joined this forum because I want to know more about analog photography (especially Large Format). I also want to know where to get the stuff I need, but that's a question I asked in the Dutch section. Regards, Steven L.
