    Hello everyone, I just wanted to chime in and say hello. My name is Don, and along with many forums it still has it's nuances that I must learn . I am 23 and I started to my photography endeavors on film but went digital since 2008. I am a Wedding and Lifestyle portrait photographer and I'm in the process of coming back to shooting film. I just bought a Mamiya 645AF and a F100, and have shot some of my client work with them. I am very astonished how thin the DOF on medium format is, but anyway that's my spiel. :smile:

    Pleased you found the site. Yes film DOF as the formats get larger was a surprise to me from 35mm film. Digital went the other way with the more compact formats.

    There is a reason that I still drag a 2400w/s pack to some larger group indoor, or after dark shoots when it is m/f or 4x5 I'm packing.
