    Hi

    A lot of you probably know, but I found out that I've never introduced myself.
    So here is a little presentation of a young danish guy.

    I am a 24 year old photographer who mainly shoots analog. My favourite subjects is portraiture, still-life and landscapes. I shoot 35 mm. for most of my work and develop and print my B&W stuff myself. Color I don't print or develop myself.

    My main camera is a Canon EOS 30 (aka. Elan 7e) with Canon 50 mm f/1.8, Sigma 28-105 and Sigma 70-300 APO. Secondary cameras are Kodak Retinette IB (for the old-fashioned stuff), Agfa Clack (for fun) and Lomo Cosmic Symbol (for the weird stuff).

    Not much more to say right (except that I'm a equipped with a Rodinal fetish).

    Greeeeeeeetings Morten!

    Welcome Morten.
    AGFA Clack - with a name like that, the camera ought to be fun to use.

    Hi Morten!

    I agree with PapaGene... but I am more intrigued by something called "Lomo Cosmic Symbol"... I would think it could _only_ by used for wierd stuff with a name like that!

    See my cameras:

    Canon EOS 30

    Agfa Clack

    Lomo Cosmic Symbol

    Furthermore I own these cameras:

    • Olympus OM1
    • Mamiya SLR
    • Canon AV-1 with 4 lenses (it's for sale)
    • Some Box cameras (one of them I have made into a 6x9 pinhole)
    • Olympus Camedia 3020 Zoom (I'm sorry that I own a digital :smile:)

    That is that.

    Greetings Morten

    1 Year @ APUG.ORG

    Hi there...

    Soon it will be October and I am celebrating my first year here at APUG.
    Unfortunately I cannot give everybody a piece of cake, so you have to close your eyes and fantasize about it.
    But thanks to all here for the tips, great debates and superb photographs!

    Morten!

    Adrian,

    that would be a Smena 4? A block of bakelite, of weird smell and awkward handling, IIRC with a triplet on front? ;-)

    Now, where is _my_ Clack? And where did I put the lens for it?

    Akvavit = means "the water of life" and is strong liquer the we drink when we eat lunch (heerings and other fish are great companions of akvavit)

    Hmmm...can't figure it out. Do you mean Carlsberg beer?

    Do you mean nice cake (flot kage in danish)?

    yep yep and yep. Like I said I can't spell in Danish. I can't beleive I messed up the name of the beer. Make me eat Velling for a week for that one. My dad use to keep the akvavit in the freezer. That way it was really cold.
