    Hello from NW Oregon

    Hi Guys and Girls,
    I have been a viewer of this forum for some time, soaking up the accumulated wisdom of the LF community.
    I love doing landscape photography with my 4x5's - and wish to improve my technique ( I sense a long journey ahead on that one).

    Welcome from yet another Oregonian (I'm a Eugenian now, after 30 years in Europe).

    Seems like we really need an Oregon LF coffee klatch or the like

    2Wheeler, are those two wheels a bicycle? I'm curious because I spent lots of time hauling my 4x5 kit around cities in Europe on my bike.

    You'll find this forum a friendly and informative resource. Check out Photrio as well if you're basically analogue.

    Best,

    Doremus

    I'm game.

    Do you get to the Portland area very often?

    Or Corvallis? (I'm an Oregon State alumni.)

    Thanks for the gracious welcome, guys.
    I would definitely go for a coffee klatch - it would be great to see some other LF owners.
    It is striking the number of people who come up to me and say they "used" to shoot LF - but quit.

    I live / work in the Portland area, so Willamette Valley is local (at least Friday through Sunday).

    Doremus, the 2Wheels are motorcycles - i have a multiple Italian motorcycle "problem"
    And a Honda, and a Harley (those I don't put in the "problem" category - yet).

    I do occasionally make a trek into PDX, so anything is possible. Maybe a meetup in the vicinity of Blue Moon Camera?

    I'd make the trip up to Portland (or wherever) to meet with a group if a meeting were arranged. I'm flexible as to schedule, so those with constraints should probably arrange things if there is interest.

    Best,

    Doremus

    Jim,
    For me, coffee is a necessity in the morning !
    I'm in Vancouver at least couple of times a month (or, right across the river), usually on Friday or Saturday mornings to avoid the Traffic From Hell going back South.
    When I am in the area, I usually have a pretty flexible schedule.
    If you have the inclination, shoot me a pm
