    Hello from Madrid, Spain

    Hi everyone,

    I am quite new in the LF world. I have some experience in digital photography but my mind receently turned to the analogic world.
    I am in love with traditional processes, mainly wet plates. I recently attended a wet collodion workshop and I am willing to start shooting my first plates.
    So, I am just grasping info from everywhere and looking for a LF camera.
    I am sure this forum will help me a lot, and hope I can contribute to it as my experecience increase.

    Thanks a lot

    Raúl

    Hi Raúl
    I'm new here too, not to large format though. I'm sure the folks here will be very helpful, my only advice is LF is simple keep your equipment down to a minimum and don't over complicate–most of all have fun!

    Kindest Regards

    Welcome aboard!
    There is a lot of useful information via the LF Home Page on the light blue banner at the top of this page.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Raul - is there a LF community in Madrid? I may be moving to Madrid in summer of 2017 and was wondering what sort of facilities there are for B&W photography. Probably will bring my LF 4x5 and MF 6x7 cameras - seems like there is at least one public darkroom in central Madrid.
