    Hi all,

    I was going to lurk around, but since I have started a thread elsewhere, I thought I better say hi!

    My name is Ashley (or you can call me Hoffy). I am pretty much a beginner in things analog (I used to shoot film once apon a time, like everyone else...its not that long ago), but not much more then an enthusiastic beginner.

    I used to (& have picked up again) shoot 35mm with Minolta SLR equipment (7000i and Alpha 303si Super). I am now looking into getting back into it again, a bit more seriously, hopefully learning how to shoot slide and possibly B&W. I am also looking into vintage and classic Minolta equipment.

    Cheers and Howdy!

    Welcome Ashley. I had the pleasure of being in South Asutralia on a commission last October, and still dream of those days. You are a lucky man, and I hope that South Australia will benefit from another APUGer! This is an amazing site....you came to the right place. Kal
