    how old are we?

    Hello to all, After reading the last post it occured to me that most of the respondants we re appoximately my age (I too and staring down the 50 year mark!) and I was wond ering what the average age of large format shooter is? It occurred to me that I don't think I've seen very many young people using this format, actually I don't see too many people shooting large format at all.

    I got my viagra and my minoxodil mixed up and now I can't get my hair to stay down! If I were enlarging paper they'd have to advertise me as having been stored in a cool New York basement!
    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.

    33. I'm new to LF, but hope to stare down my 50-year mark through a ground glass (reversed and upside-down, of course).

    how old are we?

    34 years old and I've been shooting large format for about 10 years. I shoot anything from 35mm to 5x7. I became interested in large format when I first noticed that my grandparents pictures kicked butt on todays smaller format pictures, at least my smaller format pictures.

    Size does matter!

    I am 40 now , been shooting lf for about 12 years and tired of hearing people saying " whow , is that an oldfashioned camera? or "shooting a movie?" or doing anything to distract you from taking the picture. The solution? Look intensely focused, it works most of the times. For the rest of the times, i'll be " politely rude".

    I win! 22, and new to LF (and loving it, except for my troubles finding accurate developing times for Delta 100 on a Jobo)

    I'm 36. I've been mucking about with large format for a couple of years, but now that I've finally fixed up the camera I can get serious! :-) I started photography with a point-n-shoot and then bought a Pentax 6x7. Now I have formats from half-frame to 8x10, and I like them all.
