Howdy, my real name is Nathan Smith and I live in Austin, Texas.
I've been 'talking' to Bob Fowler about photo stuff, among other things, for some time now so I thought I'd better subscribe so I can pester, I mean, share my thoughts and questions with the greater photo community.
I had fun in the darkrooms supplied by the U.S. Air Force from '79-'85 or so, but haven't been back since (though I hope to be building one in my house soon) and got away from photography to a large degree until the late '90's.
I got into medium format stuff, mostly TLR's, a few years ago but recently (ok, a year and a half ago) got a Kodak 2D 5x7 and have been slowly fixing it up and collecting gear. Collecting gear is what I seem to do best. I'm currently trying to reverse this trend with mixed results.
I'm interested in doing some classic B&W prints as well as trying out some alternative techniques.
