Greetings from London

Hi,
Just like to say hello. I'm ancient and started taking photo's some 55 years ago. Ah remember not to shake the Box Brownie when you push the shutter lever down. The good old panchromatic film The joys of deciding the F-stop and shutters speeds. Telephoto lens - woah too rich for me; get on your knees, crawl closer and damn the parallax.

I progressed to mixing my own developers with Phenidone and Hydroquinone at the age of 11. That would be almost certainly banned today.

Since then I've always realised the latest digital camera I've bought is now out of date. I mostly use my photography to record building site in obscure locations in odd countries around the world. Get the record in fine Silver grains.

Charles

Welcome to Pixalo Charles

I'm also a Londoner - albeit in exile now, and can trace my photography back to the 1950's too

Re: Greetings from London

Ah! The brownie.. was that 120 or 127? Those were the days. Not a care in the world if things were slightly out. Digital has put paid to that with evermore software to scrutinise, magnifying the slightest error a thousandfold. BUT it gives you endless pleasure (read frustration) to experiment with techniques you otherwise thought impossible.

Welcome Charles
