Since Sean so kindly setup this region for us and a handy link too www.apug.org/ireland I thought it would be cool to introduce ourselves. So here goes;

I'm Fintan and living in Laois. I mostly do B+W and polaroids, and mostly use medium format. I do have a large format camera but still learning how to use it.

I like landscape, people, street, abstract and fashion photography. I have my own darkroom but still have a lot to learn ;)

Hello there all you film-folk!

I am Brian and I hail from Abbeyleix in Laois and know Fintan. I am back living in Ireland after a 20 year foray to Landan, innit?

I used to shoot lots of film on a host of different cameras until about 8 years ago when I started into digital. I had a lot of fun at fiorst and a lot less of late, although I still use my Canon 350D for kids etc.

I have been using a Pentax Program A again recently and have just acquired a Bronica 6X4.5 which I am enjoying. Its B&W only this time and beginning to develop and print after a very long break.

Love landscape / architecture / abstract and anything that forces you to involuntarily look again.

I am also a music nut and still have not stopped buying and playing vinyl as well as all the other media we are forced to endure by the aural decoration dispensing organisations! Analogue rocks!

Ciao

Hi all,


Trapped in the rat race by day, learning to love those stolen moments behind a lens.. just started, did the Gallery Of Photo course and try to hide in their basement at any available oppurtunity. to date 14 B&W rolls shot, developed and number is growing all the time.

Current equipment.

Nikon F75 body with Nikkor 28-100 F3.5/5.6D zoom.
Nikon Nikkor 24mm 2.8D AF
Nikon Nikkor 50mm 1.4D due any day.

also found in family attic!!:o

two number 1958 minolta autowides, 28mm Rokkor lens , one working,picking up first colour roll tomorrow from lab.

one number 1958 agfa siletto vario -- needs cleaning.
loads of old colour filters for both above and light meters... should be fun to play with.:D

Avoiding the perils of buying any more.... (fingers crossed behind back) .

Hiya Folks,
I live in Co. Kildare and have been involved in photography for more than 30 years. My main interest lies in B&W and is usually landscape or architecture.You can see see some of my work at low resolution on the Gallery section of Dublin Camera Club.ie. I already know Fintan ( but then who does'nt ) from travelling to work and that's what has me in APUG.

Cheers
Vincent aka TEX

Hi- I'm joseph-

I take pictures, believe it or not-
digital as well as film- whatever is right for the job, if possible-
though it doesn't always work out that way-

I use a 4x5 for film,
and my latest little project is portraiture-
an example of the wrong tool for the job, quite possibly-

Anyway, like most everyone else here, it seems, Fintan put me up to this-

so- hello-

joseph

Hi Joseph and welcome, Fintan tends to put a lot of people up to a lot of things... so be warned ;)
I love the idea of the portraiture, sounds fascinating, looking forward to seeing lots more on it ..
