Hi All,

After about 8 years of digital, I am returning to large format. I have a C-1 8x10 and a gorgeous rosewood Wista that will be getting some exercise. I've unfrozen my film and paper, bought a decent enlarger and hope to take a workshop or two this summer. My goal is to take longer to shoot less.

If there are any large format photographers in the greater Guelph area, I wouldn't mind getting together.

Cheers, Blair

Vick and Bill, thanks for the welcome. I hear that there are some LF people in Hamilton area and hope to get out to some of the Big Camera Workshop events.

Bill, from your posts it appears you have an 8x10 enlarger. Short of digging out my basement, there is now way I can get one of these beasts in the house and have resigned myself to contact printing and scanning... for now. :)

I bought one from a fellow on Craigs list in Detroit area. It is a zone vi and sitting on the floor stands about 5 feet high. So I bend over and kneel down to use it.

I think you'll find a fair number of LF shooters in the area..... I just shoot 8x10 myself.
