Thread: Longtime nature photographer finally made the jump.

  1. #1

    Longtime nature photographer finally made the jump.

    Greetings from Massachusetts.

    I started taking pictures in 1995. I started *making* pictures in 1997~8.
    I started darkroom printing in 2002.

    I mostly photograph nature and events.
    I spend a lot of time on Cape Cod.

    I have been wishing I could dive into LF since 2004.
    And now in 2016 I have recently been given a 4x5 outfit.
    And I intend to go in head first.

    Welcome from a former MA resident! I didn't get into LF until I moved out of MA (boo hiss ) You've got great places to shoot up there!

    Welcome. I'm at the other end of the Bay State. Wish I were at the Cape this week!

    I loaded a Graphmatic full of Fomapan 200. I am not that familiar w/ this particular stock. Only ever used couple rolls of it in 120.
    I made some mistakes loading the graphmatic.
    I decided to have some fun anyway, maybe some are ok.
    The shutter is in need of a CLA.
    I hedged my bets and exposed 4 sheets... and destroyed one with a graphmatic mistake and with a shutter T error.

    But I find learning-by-doing very fun.
