    Hello from Minnesota

    Greetings to all,
    I have been an occasional lurker on this site for the past three years. When I decided to venture into large-format it was the articles and information found here that allowed me to make intelligent choices in assembling a start-up 4x5 kit.

    Today I use a 4x5 Tachihara along with aging 35mm film equipment. Mostly I use color transparency with a smaller amount of B/W negative film. The proportion of neg film will likely increase once I acquire a 4x5 enlarger.

    Most commonly photographed subjects are landscapes, native plantlife and historical architecture.

    I don't expect to be a very vocal or visible member but will be checking in regularly and continuing to learn from the rest of you.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Welcome to the LF Community Rick from south Florida!
    I once lived in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and that is as close to Minnesota I have been.

    Greetings and best wishes from Indiana. When is summer there? I have heard various reports from the last two weeks of July to the first week of August... Welcome!

    Hello from Maryland.

    I was just in Northfield the end of May. You'll see the results in Car & Driver Magazine in their September issue.

    I also am a Minnesota LF hobbyist. In response to Michael's question, summer is here about the same amout of time as Indiana. It's been running high 90's here (Minneapolis) for weeks. I was thinking of developing film tomorrow, but am afaid the cold water temp will be above 70 F and I'll have to chill things down with some ice.

    Welcome to the LF Forum, Rick. As you can see from my avatar, I use the big brother to your 4x5 Tachi, among other things.
