    Hello from England

    Hi

    I have recently dusted off my Horseman45FA , unused for 5 years after a foray into digital ( Canon 5D Mk2 ).

    I have recently made a couple of images with the canon and yearned for the 5x4 Ilford Delta negative which would have been so so lovely.

    So, I am back with a 25kg backpack with both the Canon and the 5x4 gear in it and cant wait to get back into a purer discipline.

    I have learnt a lot using the Canon and have had the freedom to experiment .

    I now photograph "light" and not "subjects " and it has taken a couple of thousand exposures to understand this , something I could not afford to do with LF.

    Cant wait !

    John

    Welcome back to large format and film. I too have found digital photography a great learning tool, and a route back to film.

    Howdy!
    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.
