Thought I'd better come in from the lurking cold and introduce myself - I too have been inspired by the new face of LFPF. My name is Pete Skerys. I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I've been toying with LF for about four years after 'accidentally' buying a 4x5 Wista tech-field camera and lens for an offer too good to refuse. Since then i've picked up a 5x7 Linhof Tech III (well, practically stole, considering the price), then went mad and won a 8x10 Zone VI on BigPay... Then, of course, there's the lenses... I won't go there, except to say i have recently been bitten by the petzval bug (thanks Jim & Co.). You know what i mean.
LFPF has been a great inspiration and source of invaluable information and opinion. We're a bit starved for LF talk/thinking down here suffice to say i doubt i would even know how to load a dd let alone process my own sheet film if not for you generous people.
I love trad. b&w and use Sandy King's Pyrocat-HD. Unfortunately i have been without a (proper) darkroom for the past six months and have found it really frustrating to even think about image making. But I've just set up a temporary space and have a heap of film on it's way from J&C - can't wait to start burning it.
There's so much to learn and so little time... I love it!
BTW: i seem to have acquired a user id that has been used by some one else in the past - can i change this id?
