Welcome! How close are you to Arundel, West Sussex? Twds the end of Aug there is an Arundel Festival and as part of that the 'Gallery Trail'. I willl try to exhibit this year again (probs with jobs so dont know if I will be there in person) and a guy call Bill Philip will be there, along with a few other photographers. He does mainly mono traditional landscapes, still life etc. Its a great day wandering about various venues having a look at the photography, painting, sculpture etc. If you want more info, PM me!
Thanks Ian for letting us know you are out there. Us Brits are a little thin on the ground but we try and make up for it with some form of quality.

Welcome... beware if many here have their way, you will move on to 7x17 and slow down to continental drift speed.
Going to a larger negative really would test the patience of my long suffering wife, so I think 5x4 is quite enough for the moment. (Although I have just bought a half plate Thornton Pickard which I hope to make use of soon.)

Hi Bob. Unfortunately I too suffer from this It usually happens when I'm in a hurry for some reason. Most often I pull the darkslide on an open lens or double expose because I've used the wrong film holder. Each time I do this I try to improve my process to reduce the chance of me doing it again. Of course, sometimes this just introduces more opportunities for different errors

Hi Baxter. You're right, my website does needs a bit of an update. There are bits which are starting to get downright embarrassing...
BTW, I saw your work in this month's Outdoor Photography. Congratulations!
