    Just spotted this Forum.

    I've been taking photos for 30+ years and even dabbled, briefly, at semi-pro weddings and portraits for family and friends, etc. I don't have any hang-ups about whether I shoot film or digital (love both) but I've recenntly got my hands on a nice Bronica SQ-B set up and I'm hoping to produce some shots for the critique gallery over the coming weeks and months...

    Always happy to receive constructive criticism and tips.....or even to have a chat.

    Hope to 'meet' some of you soon.

    All the best, Paul.

    Welcome from Thunder Bay. Warning: This place is addictive. I wish I knew half of what some of the folks here have forgotten. It's a goldmine of info you won't find anywhere else.

    Cheers guys.

    Very addictive site with a few 'quirks'. Much as I love film, I also get along quite well with digital. That might be heretical talk round these parts but I don't see why I should have to choose one or the other.

    In fact, many of the gallery postings are scanned negatives which sort of makes them at least partly digital. Consequently, it might be interesting to add another gallery for those of us who like using film but also like producing digitally manipulated images from them. Hey, photography's a broad church, isn't it?

    Anyway, great to meet you and, no doubt, our paths will cross in the years to come....:wink:
