    Greetings from Houston

    I've been lurking on this forum for a while and only just started interacting (if only a little bit), so I thought it time I introduced myself. For a bit of background, I grew up in Australia and several years ago moved to Houston. At age 14, a 645 SLR somehow found its way into my hands. A year and a half after that, I scored a bargain Toyo 45D and was thus plunged into large format. This past week, another year and a bit since picking up LF, I began shooting wet plates. Yes, I am rather young compared to most here, and as such have an incredible amount to learn. That's why I've come here.

    Bill, glad to meet you “virtually.” I think I speak for many of my age contemporaries (old!) when I say we love having young people pick up the LF that we love, and will be happy to help in any way we can.

    I hope you like to sweat. I hear that Houston's humidity in the summer is even worse than here in St. Louis. It's especially bad under a dark cloth!

    Like Peter says, it's great to have young people embrace large format photography. Welcome to the forum! You have a lot of new friends here to help you.
