    Hi. I'm a Spanish photographer from Scotland. I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I mainly use medium format and black and white (wet processing. I'm somehow becoming a collector and I really enjoy using other formats, from Minox to 6x9. At the moment I'm enjoying using a small Rolley SL-26. However, I most shoot 6x45 and 6x7 with 120 film. It is so easy to print and quality is, well you know already, amazing.

    I mostly shoot landscape and portraits. However, I am still a beginer. I started photography as a hobby in 2002 and since then I don't think on anything else.

    You may find me from time to time in the APUG dedicated to other languages too, mostly in the French speaking forum I guess. However, as I now live in an English speaking I mostly use English at work (I practice European Law for a living), therefore I feel more confortable writting in English. Anyway, I happy to be in a forum that focuses on film photography. Cheers.

    Welcome, Fernando, although I'm rather new to this forum myself.

    I would suggest, however, that photography is not a hobby. It's a progressive terminal disease, but relatively benign on everything except the wallet. Your next step is large format, of course. :wink:

    Welcome from Sydney, Australia. I was invited to a Scottish wedding here in Australia a few years back. Man, the group who flew all the way over from Scotland really knew how to have fun.... Think I'd enjoy a trip there some day..

    Enjoy the forum.
