    Hi y'all

    Well, I've lurked around here for almost 2 years now, but never posted a thing because I did not have an LF camera. But thanks to many wicked people flaunting thier LF images (yea, that's you Church Project guys!), I succumbed to temptation and recently acquired a lovely 8x10 (thank you, Mr. Galli!). Still need a lens and tripod, but I expect to be burning some big film before too long.....

    Anyway, I'm in the Houston area, currently teaching photography at a community college, shooting a Rolleiflex, and learning about this tilt and swing thing.

    Hiya Valerie...those Texas guys are notorious for that...even have notches on their belts for getting others hooked on LF.

    Enjoy the 8x10

    Welcome aboard from a rainy Fresno, CA!
    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.

    Welcome Valerie, this is a really great group and they have a lot to offer.

    Can't wait to see some of the LF work from you.

    Valerie, Valerie, Valerie. I keep telling everyone it's (LF) a cult!

    I'm still shooting roll film and have not "succumbed".

    Welcome from another Texan.

    Get that lens, buy some film and get out there making images. You are gonna love it.

    An if you want to really put that new camera to good use, get out to Big Bend.
