Hello

I've just joined, mainly because I came across the site through photos of Brighton (I live in the town formerly known as Hove, now "West Brighton"...).

I'm a film user, with no digital cameras at all; and to complete the picture of an anachronistic dinosaur, I use only black and white in a 5x4 (large format!) camera. Sometimes I use something smaller and lighter, a Mamiya RZ67 which produces miniscule negatives 6x7cm (nominal). I have a conventional darkroom, but have recently been scanning (Epson V700) and printing with an Epson 3800 printer. My experience is that I can get better prints this way.

Married with two cats; totally uncompetitive (so no chance of my entering any competitions). I've been described (on another forum) as long winded, and enjoy blowing my own trumpet, but I've learned from that and will say very little. This might even be my only post. I've learned not to express an opinion, so I'm not going to be a disruptive debater.

I've just read the "welcome" message - I thought I had before I wrote the above! - so I'll just add in response to that that I took my first photograph round about 1955, so I have been into this lark for a little while. But I've also learned never to offer criticism in any shape or form on another photographer, so no comments from me either...
