    Hello,
    I have been reading this forum for quite some time and I believe it is time to introduce myself.

    I have been doing photography (not as a business) for about 7 years (film only) and my interest has grown stronger as time passes. I am mostly attracted to: still life, landscape & architecture. I have studied with Memo Moreno, master photographer here in Hermosillo.

    In 2005 I did set up my darkroom (a Holga enlarger) and love the silver gelatin process. Last December I got a large format camera and made my first exposures with it and the control over the image is just awesome. This weekend I am setting up a beseler 45MX and will begin to enlarge my 4x5 negatives.

    I would like to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge & experience and making this site such a valuable resource.

    Hector,

    Welcome to APUG - tonight from NYC.

    But I also spend time in Tucson and have visited Hermasillo on my way to Guyamas and San Carlos.

    Maybe someday we can meet and shoot some film together?

    George

    thank you!

    thank you all for a warm welcome.

    I was checking these interesting photographs from:

    Dave Miller: IR landscapes.
    Aristotelis Grammatikakis: zeybek (dancing men).
    John Addison: River Rafting.
    Christopher Walrath: floral studies, Ansel Adams article (very well said!)
    Suzanne Revy: MY son, Family walk.
    the flying camera: Buenos Aires by night.

    Keep up the good work, see you around here :smile:
