    I found this forum recently and thought it looked like something that i might enjoy. I have been in photography all my life. I got my first camera at age 5 and started in the business at a young age. I am now all digital using Nikon gear and printing on a Noritsu printer. I photograph HS seniors as well as kids and families. I also shoot school pictures, sports leagues, Proms etc.

    I still have all my film cameras and recently have been trying to get them all up and running:D For 35mm i always used Nikons with the exception of one Leica. I also have a Canon but please don't spread that around:tongue: For medium format I used several Twin lens cameras including C330 Mamiya and Yashica Mat124. I used my Koni Omega quite a bit. Towards the end of my film days i mostly used Bronica Etrsi.

    I have no real plans to use film for customer work but really would like to start using my film cameras as an escape:smile: Still have the darkroom also!

    Well anyway I think i will hang around here and see what happens. The name i choose for myself is a tribute to the Nikon F2AS, everything seems right with the world when I have one of them in my hands.

    Thanks for letting me be part of this forum.

    Good Morning, F2AS,

    Welcome from southwestern Illinois. Good to see another member who's familiar with the Koni-Omega.

    Welcome to APUG. Great handle. I loved my F2AS. Great camera. Have now moved on to F5s but am thinking of getting an F2 to keep in the car at all times. Living in Canada, you need something that can handle the cold when the car is parked.

    Glad to see your revived interest in analog. Much different animal all together. Have fun here and don't be a stranger. Don

    I have looked at that site but I don't recall ever posting there. I have occasionally posted on dpreview.com under this name.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone! Glad to be here, when I stopped shooting film it was very sudden. I think I still have some unfinished work to do.

    Welcome to APUG

    Are you telling us that your life is now over and that you are dead?

    I think you meant, "I have been in photography most of my life so far."

    I've heard of ghost writers but not ghost photographers...
