Greetings New England APUGGERS... Although I registered with APUG quite a while ago, I have only recently started paying attention to it, and I figured that I would post an intro of myself here. I have done photography, mostly B&W, since I was given a 35mm camera when I was 12 (36 years ago). Over the past 5 years most of what I have done has been LF, mostly landscapes. I would still grab a 35mm camera for times when I wanted to do a handheld shot. Last year, I got a very nice image of my son (who is a musician), and his violinist with the 35mm - great lighting, nice composition, sharp focus. I got so frustrated in the darkroom working with that tiny negative that I deceded to look for a larger format camera that I could use for handheld shots, and this spring ended up with a gently used Hasselblad, which I am slowly learning to operate. After having been abandoned by Kodak (one of my favourite films was Plus-X Pan) I have shifted to shooting almost exclusively Ilford film now - mostly HP-5, some FP4+ and Pan F+. I develop mostly in HC-110 for LF, and use D-76 for 35mm, haven't settled on anything for MF yet, still experimenting. I live in Maine, just north of Portland, and have a nice darkroom there. I spend most weekends in Mass - I have an apartment in Watertown where although I do not have a full darkroom, I have what is needed to process roll film. I spend the weekends with my daughter, who is in high school, and also does B&W photography. I was a member of the Portland Camera Club, and remain in contact with many of their members, but the club was not serving my needs - too much focus on competition and digital for the direction that I was going. I am hoping to find this community more sympatico.
