    Hello from Canada

    Hello, my name is John Cox and I've been browsing threads here the past few days and was impressed by the content and quality; I hope I have something decent to contribute and I'm sure I'll learn a lot.

    I've been working as a photographer for the past seventeen years from when I started covering after school activities for a local newspaper. I started out with a Polaroid land camera and currently shoot Digital, Bonica MF, and leica M/L39. My most loved film is TXP 320 (120/220) and still have some as I buy it whenever I see it. If you know of any that the owner will part with let me know. I also have a large collection of toy/box cameras from 1886-1970.

    I really like working with film because of the sheer deliberation involved. Taking a picture with film forces you to slow down and pay attention to composition exposure and focus. I feel this is lacking in a lot of photography today.

    I live in Orangeville Ontario but will be moving to Toronto in the near future.

    Hello John - welcome to APUG from the southwestern corner of the country!

    Hello John, from Paul in the mountains of Western Canada.

    I really like your attitude!

    Now, where is Ontario...is it anywhere near Ottawa?

    Hi John, from another fellow Canuck located in the middle of the Prairies. I too love TXP and has some 120/220 in my freezer that I am not willing to sell as it is one of my favorite films ever. Glad you like the site, some of us spend a lot of time here.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.
