    Greetings from Atlanta

    Hey everyone. Glad to see such an active forum! Happy to be here.

    My name is Zac. I graduated from SCAD a little over a year ago with a BFA in Photo. I currently work in Atlanta as a hardware support specialist and rental manager at a local medium format camera dealer. After being on that side and helping clients achieve super high resolution (80 megapickles+) I'm turning the other way and getting back in to 4x5 film for philosophical and artistic reasons. In the not so distant future I hope to be working in wet plate collodion.

    In college I shot a lot of 4x5, some 11x14 (when money allowed), as well as some tintype. I desperately miss spending all day in the darkroom slaving over prints and hand developing 11x14 negatives.

    By the end of the month I'll be able to call a 4x5 Titan field camera my own and get back to shooting large format. I don't have easy access to a dark room, so printing will be a challenge, but one I'm looking forward to.

    I'm applying to a few schools this year in hopes of pursuing an MFA in the fall of 2014 in order to teach. I'm looking at Oregon, RISD, and Stanford to name a few (suggestions more than welcomed).

    I'm looking forward to lurking around the forums and learning/catching up on developing/printing techniques and getting my feet wet in developer (not really).

    Below are two of my better 11x14 experiments.

    Thanks for reading! War Eagle!

    Welcome to APUG, Zac -- the more the merrier! Good luck with your pursuit of an MFA -- my only comment would be that housing costs in the Stanford/Palo Alto area are likely to be higher than some of your other choices, though perhaps you'll have some on-campus housing available. I grew up in the Los Altos/Mountain View area, and used to tease my father for not buying several acres of downtown Sunnyvale (or Milpitas, for that matter) when we moved to the area in 1960. Who knew?
