    I have been involved in photography for over 20 years since I worked all Summer to get my old Pentax Super Program. I eventually went to Nikon and in 2006 I went digital. Please don't hate me! I shoot film in my Mamiya 645 ProTL and with my Toyo 45C.

    I am excited to be starting down the large format path. I am living large and loving it! I am busy re-learning all the stuff I had in various photography courses in college.

    I am proud to be a member of Boston Photography Center, a wonderful group of photographers whom have shared with me copious amounts of knowledge.

    I am looking forward to becoming active in this group and learning knowledge and passing along my knowledge as well.

    Welcome from a former New Englander (still one at heart). The New England crew is all great and gets together pretty often. You'll find tons of info here, too.

    Welcome to APUG from NYC.

    Now, I could say something rude here about the Red Sox; but instead I'll just say:

    GO YANKEES!!!! :D

    Hey Navy! We are, as Suzanne has said, a pretty active group. Keep your eye on the regional stuff and maybe we can get together soon. Welcome to the "large size fits all" side of photography.

    Another Welcome Moose from another New Englander. I live in Maine, but spend a fair amount of time in the Boston area (I am typing this in Watertown). We have an active regional group, keep your eyes on the New England regional forum and join us in person at one of our events!

    Thank you all for the warm reception. I saw the New England regional threads. If there is something on a weekend I can make. My large format and I will be making a road trip.
