    Salutations from never rainy Vancouver BC!

    Hello there.

    Well, I've been shooting film on a more steady basis since 2001 though I've always had an interest in photography. Obviously, I started with 35mm, first Camera I got was a Canon EOS 5 with some Tamron lens. I really wanted to get into the music industry and photograph bands and work for magazines. The dream slowly became a reality (but not a full time one) and a friend of mine, who was in a popular band (metal band) at the time gave me my first break and thus my name was somewhat out there.

    Like most, I tried shooting weddings and hated it. Being a film shooter and the concept of "mass image production" didn't mesh well with me. So I stopped after 3 weddings )
    2 years ago I bought my first Hasselblad 500C and was introduced to a whole new world!
    My first serious attempt in shooting landscapes was between Dec 2006 and March 1007 when I packed my backpack and camera bag and went trekking in Southern Patagonia. WOW! If anyone hasn't gone yet, make plans!

    Anyhow, I'm slowly learning about 4x5 and wanting to get my first camera soon! I'm still in the research and saving dimes and pennies phase.


    I have a website: http://www.seventhframe.com any comments welcome.

    Cheers!

    Hmm, better make that dollars and hundreds; you don't yet know how G.A.S can get to your bank balance when you see all that lovely LF gear

    Welcome to LF, seventhframe! The LF group that I am a member of is putting on their second show in New Westminster. Opening reception is Saturday July 5th at 7. Come and meet the others in the group (4 in the show) and check out the work. The show is called Spirit Houses and I posted more info in the Announcements section.

    Haha, that would be interesting to take a LF into a photo pit!! I shot my Hassy at a show once, I am definitely capable on snapping at least one shot with LF

    Red face From your insider's view point (music bands)could you help

    explore the "how and why's of the frequent "at odds" pose of contempory "bands"? What factors are at play:
    Economic deprevation of the photographer re equipment and "studio" lighting?
    Overly dramatic, attention demanding appearances to appeal to wantabee consumers/rebels?
    The natural discomfort / distrust of "Sound" people submitting themselves to Sight media?

    I take it that because I'm old, I just don't get it.
