    Hello!

    Been a member for several years but have never introduced myself. I was interested in posting in the MSA when it dawned on me that I have pretty much always lurked and haven't posted much. Have always enjoyed reading the posts and seeing what everyone else was up to.

    Anyway, I have enjoyed photography (on again/off again) for over 40 years. Developed my first B&W negatives when I was 12 years old. My wife and I would do most of our picture taking on vacations and such. However nowadays, I find myself shooting more just for the fun of it. Even though we have some digital gear, I find shooting with my old Nikon film cameras much more enjoyable. I still enjoy developing B&W and learning about techniques from the other members here.

    These days with film photography getting more of a challenge to do, I find communities of folks such as here at APUG a great source of knowledge and entertainment. Will try to post more often than I have done in the last 6 years! :smile:
    Thanks,

    Rick Montgomery
