    Hi,

    Another new member around, my name is Patrick, I'm 21, and my biggest passions are music and photography.
    Although I do own a digital camera (nikon D80), and use it on a regular basis, I also use various analogue camera's when I can.

    I have a Kodak Retina II which is always with me, loaded with black and white film. Nice and compact, it comes in handy when I can't or when i'm not in the mood to carry a lot of equipent with me.
    For the more serious work I use a Bronica S2a, with Nikkor 50, 75 and 135mm lenses, and various accessoires.

    The only option i have to develop and print my own photographs is at school, where I also like to use a viewcamera. As soon as I can, I will get myself one. Just have to give my girlfriend a little extra compliments and attention I guess. :tongue:

    Further stuff: I still live with my parents, and I am still at school, last year there where some personal problems getting in the way of my graduation, so I will graduate this year, and then I'll be an official graphical designer. :D

    My other passion is music, I play the guitar, violin and hurdy gurdy. the most notable band I'm in is Conorach, we just recently released our cd, after releasing a demo two years ago. Besides that, I have a solo-project called "Woudschim" which translates into something like "forest-shade/ghost" in English. First cd is done, and Im working on the second. :smile:

    Cheers!

    You haven't noticed the Dutch section yet?

    Daar mag je gewoon in het nederlands communiceren.

    Woudschim. Welcome from England. There are a lot of good APUGers in the Dutch section and I meet one on the recent Ilford tour but I hope you will keep those of us who only speak English in your circle as well.
