    Hi from Vermont!

    I finally did it. The other day I bought a 4x5. It should be here the beginning of next week. I've been wanting to get into large format for a while. Been perusing the local craigslist, checking ebay, yard sales, and the like. But earlier this week I came across an Omega 45E system for a price I couldn't refuse. Got myself the body, 12 film holders, a polaroid 545 holder(useless now I think), a cloth hood, lens shade, a Schneider-Kreuznach Sinar Symmar 150/5.6 + lensboard, a 90/8 Acugon on a recessed lensboard, a funky clip-on lens shade, and a nice hard carrying case for everything. All in excellent shape.

    I'm very excited to start using the whole system. I had a dream last night about making lith prints from 4x5 contacts... and I'd like to try some small albumen prints. But one step at a time. It looks like I have a lot to learn about LF and this site has been an excellent resource so far. Movements seem especially interesting/awesome. I'll be sure to scan and post some of my first attempts when it shows up, bad as they may be. Attached is a picture of my new giant caterpillar monster.

    Zach,

    Welcome to Large Format! You may want to check our Fine Focus Workshops. Richard Ritter and Bruce Barlow hold these workshops in the Brattleboro area 3-4 times a year.
