    Hi everybody

    So, after reading through the forums for over a year, it's really time to get involved now.
    First step : Present yourself properly !

    Well then, here I am, my name is Joerg, I live in the southwest of Germany and for my own pleasure,
    I do b&w landscape photography.
    Photography started about 25 years ago when my father lent me his Nikon F2. He told me the basics, I bought a
    lens and off I went. But THE major boost came when, following of AAs' death, I, out of curiosity, purchased
    two of his books - I saw for the first time what landscape photography could be. Since then though,
    AA has lost much of his appeal to me and if today I had to point out a single photographer I truly like,
    it would be Fay Godwin, so you know a bit in what direction my interests are.
    Equipmentwise I've gone up and down through the formats and I finally settled on medium format, it just
    suits me so well. And yes ... there's still that F2 I've got on loan.

    Cheers to all
    Joerg

    I envy you Southwesterners the opportunity to photograph in Brackenheim, near Heilbronn, where my ancestors lived. I still haven't made it to the village.

    Moin Jörg,

    interesting that it all began with your father's F2. My father did not lent me his F2, but it has been always the camera I really wanted to have.

    I don't have one yet, though. :sad:

    Oops, almost forgot: welcome to the group!
