    Greetings from NW Washington (state).

    Hello Y'all-

    I am a long-time LF wannabe and am quite likely going to invest in the necessary equipment in the very near future since the film bug has once again bit and the house is free and clear.

    I lived just outside of the Seattle city limits for most of my life (Lake City/North City area) but moved about 100 miles north a while ago. About a month ago I was quite bored one evening and grabbed one of my old photo books (Wall and Jordan's Photographic Facts and Formulas) and the interest was instantly rekindled. I have most- if not all- of my darkroom equipment from a prior era so the reinvestment in such will be minimal.

    When I do purchase a large-format camera it will be at least 8x10 since I will want contact prints... and thanks to this board, I will probably use X-ray film for starters! I'm seasoned in the darkroom so I know about delicate film handling and I reckon it would be best to treat the X-ray film with as much- or more care- than the EFKE films, which are delicate in their own way-

    I ***really*** want to get into LF now; it's been about a thirty-year desire and it's time to get it out of committee!

    Welcome to the forum! So you are in the Bellingham area? I pass through there on my way to Mt. Baker. What sort of photography do you think you'll be doing?

    Thank you both for the warm welcome. I live north of Bellingham, in Lynden...

    For starters, I will probably be shooting landscapes, churches, old decrepit barns/outbuildings (plenty of those around here!) and fire hydrants (must be the Bowser in me but for some very strange reason I like photographing them). From there... who knows?

    Welcome to the list from Salt Lake City, Utah.

    With your humidity up there you might want to consider Zia types.

    Welcome to the forum from the Seattle area. My imagination is running wild with commentary from passersby you may encounter with your 8x10 zoomed in on a fire hydrant!!
