    Howdy from Calgary

    Hi there,

    Sort of new to 4x5, just starting to really explore the medium. I have a Graflex and a (borrowed) Linhof Technika system.

    4x5 paper neg of my husband



    Pleased to meet everyone, excited about finding this forum.

    Welcome! I'm a Calgarian, though one who fled the boom a couple of years ago (not such a great party when you've got nothing to do with the oil business).

    There's a great LF user's group in Calgary (Eric Rose is a good guy to talk to for info, he's on here) and plenty of talented photographers; maybe you already know some of them.

    Pretty nice paper neg. I could never manage to get the contrast down when I've tried them, but then I didn't try that hard.

    Light leaks at the bottom of the shot of your husband? Might want to check your holders.

    Great shot though! Welcome to LF!

    Welcome to the forum from three hours east of you in the Hat. The Calgary LF group also has a newsgroup and through it I have obtained an enlarger for myself and another for a friend but have never had or made the time to go to any of their meetings or outings.

    Lots of info and assistance at this site. Enjoy and learn.

    Hi there. If you would like to join the Calgary Large Format users Group just drop me a line and I will add you to our roster. It's not a "club" as I hate those things but a group of LF'rs who meet once a month and swap pics, stories and technique. We are having our summer bbq in July so you don't want to miss that. Contact info is: ericrose4x5 AT gmail.com

    I don't play the piano, I don't have a beard and I listen to AC/DC in the darkroom. I have no hope as a photographer.

    Thank you Everyone! I feel all warm and fuzzy.

    Eric, do you know Jose? He mentioned that such a group exists and invited me along. I'm going to guess its the same one. Email coming
