My name is Hayden, I recently relocated to Seattle from Los Angeles. I spent the last 6 years working in the film industry as a focus puller and operator. So while Im well versed in motion picture cameras and technique, the world of stills (especially large format) is an entirely new beast to me. To get started I picked up a nice old Toyo 45d with a Schneider 150 f/9 and have since been piecing together the rest of the essentials for a kit.
This forum has been a great resource, so I look forward to being a part of it moving forward as I take the plunge into large format.
