    Ireland Region - Introductions

    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

    Great idea Fintan. Here's me;

    I'm David, living in Bray, Co.Wicklow. I have been involved with photography on and off for about 25 years. Up to recently it has all been 35mm film/slide, have had my own darkroom for B+W, kit is in my attic but intend to get it setup again soon. Recently got a DLSR (Sony A100) and while I do like the immediacy of the digital, don't think I will ever let go of film. Would like to get into some Medium format. My kit is all Minolta (now Sony) and I enjoy shooting, Landscape, Seascape and old buildings. I only signed up to APUG in Feb, having "hung out" on a Miniolta User's group prior to this. It's great to see such a vibrant forum with some locals.
    I want to take the photograph I think I'm taking

    Hi from Trim.

    Hi, my name is Peter and I live in Trim, County Meath.

    I shoot mostly B&W 120 film and have a darkroom in my attic. I love photographing landscapes and old buildings, especially with Infrared film.

    I have always enjoyed photography for as long as I can remember. I love packing all my gear and heading off for a day shooting but I equally enjoy all the film developing and darkroom printing experience.

    Apug is my number 1 resource for traditional photography.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Catherine - a Canadian (via Brooklyn)... now living near Cork. I love street photography, toy cameras, and crazy fine-art stuff (collages, multiple exposures, etc.). Took a class two years ago on alt processing. I'm not a pro - but I've started selling a bit on microstock - and will be interested to see where I can go in the next year or so with travel photography. At the moment I'm doing a project based on the story "the red shoes" so if you know any hairy and horrible guys who might like to model for me, please let me know!

    I should confess I'm a bit of a "hybrid" - lately I shoot digital but to redeem myself you should know that I make large negatives for contact printing in the regular darkroom.

    There is nothing I love more in this world than being in the darkroom.

    Catherine

    Me..

    Somehow I feel this should start...
    My name is Sheila.. and I'm a Photoholic...

    But .. I'll stick with..

    Hi I'm Sheila (Síle ás Gaelige ), I live in County Wicklow. Since I was 15 I've been into 35mm photography, and in the past few years... D*g*t*l..

    Last year someone gently placed a Rollei TLR in my hands and my life hasn't been the same since.. I finally adopted a Minolta Autocord in September, and we've spent some wonderful months getting to know one another intimately.. But we still have so much to learn..

    At the moment I'm trying to figure out (with the help of apug and some friends) how to adapt my Daylab to develop b & w 35mm.. it's been so long since I processed and developed my own film, I'm hoping both friends and apug will help in the journey.

    My favourite thing to photograph is doors, doorways, old buildings and the beach.. of which thankfully there is an abundance of in Ireland.

    Also David and I have known each other for a few years, only realising in the past year that we share a passion for photography. What he doesn't realise, is that I'm only holding out for that enlarger in the attic.. so shh.. don't tell him..

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?
