Edinburgh Calling

Hi pixalo people. Here's my intro.:

I live in Edinburgh, but hail from Dundee. Got into photography about a year ago. At first I got a Pentax K1000 - a totally manual 35mm film camera. I enjoyed exploring how to do it all without recourse to the auto settings. But, it was expensive, and I didn't always get it right.

Next I got a Fuji X100, and never looked back. I've really enjoyed the camera, and still do. I have a flickr site: Flickr: RobMacKillop's Photostream

Sometimes I try experimental shots, still exploring different styles. I got a lot of help from the guys at [link removed] and recommend the site to others. Nothing wrong with being in more than one photography forum, I hope?

I did am Open University module of digital photography, which was quite helpful too.

lately I've become interested in Medium Format photography, and have bought on ebay a Mamiya RB67 Pro SD camera with 90mm KK lens. That should arrive in a few days' time. I'll be doing a course in black and white photography at Stills Gallery in Edinburgh, which includes tuition on developing MF images. Looking forward to that.

Happy to be here, to learn and share.

Three very different shots to give you some idea of where I'm at:

My wife sleeping on couch: 1. Susan Sleeping - Blue | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Landscape - Forth Bridge: Anchored | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Abstract plant life: GardenLights | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

One day I'll figure out how to place images here from flickr...

Welcome to Pixalo Rob

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a member of more than one photographic forum, but we do draw the line at promoting rivals to Pixalo, so I removed your link.

Re: Edinburgh Calling

Sorry, Dabhand16, but I don't seem them as rivals, however I'm not seeing it from your perspective. I intend to learn from and share with both forums.
