    Hi all - well here's a bit about me!

    I am 47 years old and live with my American husband here in Scotland (he is a medium/large format user).
    I returned to film 2 years ago when I retired from my career as a nurse and had time on my hands...I took a college course and was required to use a 35mm camera - enter stage left my Canon EOS 30 :smile: (I use a Canon 40D for my digital work).
    I have also returned to processing and printing and have been having a great time using the college's facilities.

    I have just completed my HNC and hope to progress to the HND course later this year. I am also ready to buy my first medium format camera, which is exciting but scary at the same time :laugh:

    I love portraiture and still life and prefer using natural light wherever possible.

    Look forward to getting to know you!
    Laura
