    Hello From Wisconsin

    Hello All,

    My name is John Koster and I'm a writer and photographer from Wisconsin, USA. Though I have 12 years of digital camera experience, I only have a couple of years of medium format film experience with a Pentax 67 (with the Takumar 135 f/4) and I've now gotten a Chamonix 045 with a Nikon 150 f/5.6. I just started learning, thanks for having me. Now to find a manual somewhere around here.....

    I have an 045n too and love it. Really don't need a manual but there are YouTube videos.

    John, welcome from the Racine area. I've been enjoying LF for about 6-7 years now, and especially in recent nicer days when I can get out locally. Don't hesitate to contact me by PM if you are nearby and may want to discuss any aspects of LF. 'Enjoy...

    Welcome !

    Since you are in the area I wanted to suggest joining the Midwest Large Format Asylum. It is free and a great way to connect with nice people with similar interests. The facebook page is how we stay in touch. https://www.facebook.com/groups/275113417230/ There are periodic outings and in Jan of every year there is a print review. I have come to look forward to it every year now. So much support ...so much talent and willingness to share.

    Best,

    Francis

    Thank you all for such a warm welcome! Too bad this Covid-19 pandemic hasn't lightened the mood any, lol. I'm an older guy and I love the look of large format but wow there is a learning curve. I wanted to be able to do everything from start to finish, from loading my 4X5, shooting, developing and scanning, but I feel overwhelmed. So I'm going to slow down and just try and get one thing right at a time, the need to be methodical for this kind of photography is essential, from what I'm seeing. Again, thanks all!
