    Hello everyone.

    I cannot believe I have somehow managed to overlook this forum.

    Briefly I work full time and am 40 years old. In 2005, after years of looking at coffee table books and taking happy snaps, I realised that I loved photography. So I enrolled on a degree course at the local college and threw myself into it all.

    After about two weeks on the course, I realised that I didn't value my digital pictures and was captivated by negs, transparencies, funny smelling liquids and red lights.

    So here I am, using a second hand monorail 5x4, finding a 101 ways to mess it up, and loving every minute of it. I enjoy taking landscapes which have a documentary slant.

    Steve

    I have a 4x5 monorail, but that 5x4 sounds interesting. Post pics!

    Greetings from Sydney. Welcome and thanks for choosing your real name, which is what friends do and what we might expect (I'm assuming) a straightforward yorkshireman to do. Can you hold a cricket bat and has Red Ken moved to Harrogate!?
