    Hello from Portugal

    Hi there!

    I've been reading around the forum for some time now, but only now I decided to register.

    I only shot Large Format back in college but I've been seriously thinking about (finally!) getting my own 4x5 camera. I've done some experiments with DIY Ultra Large Format a few years ago and would also like to get into that again...and this looks like the perfect forum for that.

    See you around

    Welcome to the forum! Anything 4x5 or larger is considered large format. Whether you use a lens or not is up to you. Quite a few people here own pinhole cameras. As far as camera obscure, I've seen YouTube videos where they converted a van or truck into a moving camera obscure so they could shoot landscape as well as portraiture. It's all fun! Glad to have you!

    Welcome aboard!
    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.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    About the van thing, yeah, it looks awesome and it's on my bucket list. I follow the work of some photographers who do that and it looks pretty interesting. Looking forward to trying it out someday

    Yes, welcome. I went to the link. Great work and I really love the smoking pic, very cool.

    I may have to buy some pipe tobacco as I hate the smell of my brand new fog machine!

    Hope you enjoy the journey with LF film and gear. It can be challenging and fun both.
    Do you know this Photographer? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDzStvqUzG8 Armando Jorge? I know the images are not LF, but he sure has some fine work.
    Do you think you will be doing darkroom work and your own printing or a hybrid film/digital workflow? Maybe too early to commit. Whichever, hope you have a good time.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.
