Morning, y'all.

I thought I'd say hi from Minneapolis.

I'm a 37 year old student (back in school yet again!), about to start a master's program.

I'm not an art student, but a rhetoric and political communications student who got fascinated with photography by taking a part-time job as photojournalist for the university newspaper.

It's gone from automatic setting on the school's digital camera to my shooting the 2004 Minneapolis Fringe Festival to wedding work to fine art prints from digital to just recently starting to get my hands stinky in developer. Hopefully once I learn how to print on actual paper from actual film I can leave digital stuff to the journalism and focus (pun intended) on film.

Aside from the digitals I use for work, I shoot mostly old Russian and Japanese rangefinders and inexpensive medium format gear. I'm getting tons of milage out of my Kiev 60 6x6 and a Kiev 4 35mm.

Lately I've been playing around with plastic "no focus" cameras and having lots of fun, but my motto is to always have something at hand somewhere. So my shots might come out of a Canonet, a Lynx 14, a Zorki 1, or my trusty but venerable Praktica SLR.

Anyway, here are some shots from the last un-snowy day of the year for us up here. I chased a firetruck and all I had was a plastic no-focus loaded with HP5+. Dead Link Removed

hello
welcome. Im not that "old" of a member but nonetheless I really enjoyed your images. They have a really old timey painterly feel to them.

Welcome Clint: I am an old member in more ways than one and will say that it's wonderful to see new traditional photographers coming from youthful and previously d-----l stock. I'm sure you will find a home here.

Welcome to the site Clint, I'm sure you'll find the threads here fascinating and a source of great knowledge.

Your comment about inexpsensive MF gear rings very true for me as well. I could never justify any MF gear until the last couple of years when prices started to tumble here in Oz on the 2nd hand market. And now I love using my pair of Mam 645's.

I am just avoiding the LF folks on this site 'cause I know what will happen if I listen to them :smile: (Maybe it's inevitable? sigh)

Welcome Clint. Would I be correct in guessing those shots were taken in NE Minneapolis?

You bet. I'm a NordEaster myself. =)

I lived off of Broadway and Central for a number of years. I'm now way out in the southwest suburbs - near the site for the Ren Fest.

Greetings from the only city where there are MORE Swedes than Minneapolis -- Stockholm! But I'll be back in California by the weekend...

...and in MN (St Anthony Village) for the holidays. Anyone up for a frosty APUG fog & grog during that timeframe?

(My dad in Mpls says that there's no snow and flowers near his door just started blooming this past week... what's up with THAT? Lots snow here)

Yeah, its the warmest November in ages. Im not complaining!

Let me know when you'll be in town. I'm always up for buying a fellow photographer a beer (or lutefisk, your choice -- it IS minnesota, after all) and talking shop!
