    Hello from Munich!

    Hi Everybody!
    I'm Andrea, an italian 35yo guy living in Munich, Germany. I've been very interested in photography since I was a teenager, starting with my father's old Canon AE-1. I later moved to digital, that is what I use most often now, but I still shoot film on the side (mostly B/W, 35mm and 6x6). It was quite some time that I wanted to try LF, mostly because of the freedom of movements offered by the camera and finally, very few months ago I found a great occasion to buy a Sinar F1 that included also a Sinaron 210mm f5.6 and a 6x9 roll film back.
    I still have almost everything to learn in this field and I hope to find here many informations.
    I was wondering if there are other LF photographers in the Munich area, to exchange informations, suggestions and maybe doing some work together.
    Have a nice day!

    Re: Hello from Munich!

    Hi. I had a look at your blogs and I really like your work!
    Up to now I just did some shootings in the city, but there are a lot of opportunities for beautiful landscapes in the Alps not far from here.
    Here are a few places I would go in town:
    - Nymphenburg castle
    - Olympiapark
    - Hofgarten
    and out of town:
    - Oberschleissheim castle (just out of town)
    - Fussen and Neuschwanstein castle (1h45 driving)
    - Königsee (1h45 driving)
    - Eibsee (1h driving)
    - Hirschenberg (45min driving)
    Let me know when you are around and maybe we can go out to take some photos together!

    Welcome aboard Andrea!
    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.

    Andrea: Thanks for your information! I will check on those places. We will stay in Munich for 2 days as a tour group. Let's see whether I will have free time. David
