    Hello - Newbie here from South Carolina

    Hi everyone! Ran across this site from Google searches and the article in B&W magazine and oh boy! am I ever glad to have found you guys.

    I am a complete newbie to LF photography (a Horseman LE is responsible for my current addiction) and I'm also discovering alternative printing processes - I want to try all of it but will try to restrain myself ;-) I shoot digital too but you won't ever hear me try to tell another photographer that they should give up on film. Why do digital shooters do that anyway? Are they afraid of film?? Why not enjoy the best of both worlds is my philosophy!

    So please indulge me as I have been known to ask some awfully dumb questions but figure somebody out there is probably wondering too so I go for it.

    I would also like to thank the creator of this site and all of you posters; I have already learned so much just by reading previous threads.

    Cheers,
    Ellen

    Hi Ellen!

    Are you the same Ellen as is on the LF Photography forum? Just curious. Welcome to APUG, LF and soon alt-processing. Love the avatar, btw.

    Thank you :-)
    Sean, I'm just south of Charlotte. Moved here with my family (Hubby took a job that required it) just a little over 2 years ago. I'm still learning about the area and scouting cool places to photograph. I love 'old and abandoned' so if you have any suggestions, please share.
    And yup, I'm same 'Ellen' as on the LF forum. It's amazing what a small world the net is, isn't it?

    South Carolina is great for old and abandoned structures. Just hop in your car and drive out into some country areas and you'll be bombarded with subject matter. Probably best to take a GPS device so you don't get too lost

    LOL - Man, you are preaching to the choir! I don't know how many times I've gone off on a jaunt and have wound up in places and just had no idea how I managed to get there. All in good fun though!

    Just curious, what prompted your move to New Zealand? I've heard it's beautiful but I've never had the pleasure of a visit.

    Welcome Ellen, I am sure you'll enjoy the site.

    As for NZ, I've been there only once, for a 3 week holiday and I could not believe how lush and georgeous it was, even in July (Mid winter). I live in Sydney, just across from Sean, and the difference is like chalk and cheese.

    NZ = Green ,Lush, wet, BEWDIFUL..
    OZ = Brown (mostly), sparse, dry, dry, dry (you get the point). Bewdiful in a very different way...

    Will surely go back for more holidays just to soak in the environment...

    I am woman - hear me (& my Horseman) roar! tee hee hee

    Glenn, I can relate with what you are dealing with. I grew up in the Texas panhandle and it was brown (mostly), sparse, dry, dry, dry... you get the picture! But oh! how I miss it sometimes... You could watch a storm blow in from Canada it was so flat. Mesquite bushes everywhere and when I was a girl, I used to walk for miles and miles, just for the fun of discovering new patterns in the dirt. :-)
