    Hi everyone I'm Irvin. I'm from London and have been given a medium format Mamiya 645j from a work colleague after his dad passed on because he knew I was into photography and I absolutely love it. I had been dabbling with 35mm ocasionally along with the D300 but I am loving the thought that goes into using the mamiya before actually pressing the shutter button. I hope I can pick up plenty of tips from you guys and will share some of my shots once I'm settled in.
