    Hello All:
    I live in Lewistown. I am a Black and White photographer who does all the processing, printing, and mounting. I shoot some color negatives, and send them out for processing. I am in the process of building a permanent Darkroom. I have been serious about Black and White since 1996, and have no formal training. Learned from reading, and making lots of mistakes! I own a few cameras, and 4 x 5 is my favorite with Medium Format next. I registered to read and learn, and possibly contribute, (if I can).

    Howwwdeeeee! Was up in your neck of the woods this past summer. Made it all the way to Valentine. Or what's left of it, I guess. We were visiting my father-in-law who lives in Roundup. We had to make a side trip to show our daughters the CLOSEST town to their Grandpa's Ranch.

    Greetings Barney from accross the pond, never worry about mistakes, they are the perfect way to learn. I make it a rule to get everything wrong to start with just so I can improve, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :smile:

    Hey there Barney, hello from just north of you. I live in Calgary AB and we have a great LF community here. Maybe we can organize a little trip down to your end of things. What are the main points of interest? Best time of year?

    Hi Barney.

    I just LOVE MT! Have been through your town many times on the way to Great Falls from ND (where I'm from originally) (taking the north, desolate route).

    I am new and self-taught mostly as well. Looking forward to seeing the Big Sky country through your postings!
