This is my first post on the forum, following my (very) recent registration.
My personnal photographic history starts around 1985, when I was 6 years old, a got my first camera: a kodak instamatic. Later, I inherited my father's Pentax ME. More recentely, I was given a baby rolleiflex, found by my father in law in an attic... This was, basically, the beginning of the end
After buying 127 film on the internet, to feed the baby rolleiflex, I was rapidly confronted to the problem of getting it developped. So, I started to process myself. To get useful tips about film processing, I registered to a french-speaking forum on analog photography... There, I discoverd a whole new world... Today, I own about 2 dozens (my wife says "at least four dozens") cameras. I also have a small enlarger and I do black and white prints.
Most of all, my most recent camera is a gorgeous Thornton Pickard triple extension view camera, to which I managed to attach a Symmar Lens:

I just love it. It was bought by my uncle several years ago, but he never found the time to buy a lens and use it... I recentely snapped my first pieces of sheet film...
As large format photography is completely new to me, I decided to register to this forum. There is so much to learn...
