Hi From New Zealand
I've been seriously chasing photography for close to 2 years now (a real veteran..!!) and am totally self taught, here's my portfolio so far -
am hoping to get this printed out like a little fold out business card or something.
Currently I am a DSLR user but am looking at returning to film after too many frustrations with colour and definition in photographs with digital. Digital has allowed me to learn very fast tho...
After I get a couple more lens' I'm looking at getting something like this so i can do all my own touch ups and maybe use slide films..?
I joined this forum to learn more about film and studio gear, hope to talk with you guys more in the future
Doug, I hope you enjoy your return to film based photography. APUG is the best place to learn and I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here.
Welcome Doug. What part of New Zealand are you from? I'll be on the South Island in about two weeks, then on the North towards the end of October. I believe we are planning on an APUG get together around Auckland then.
Welcome. We're all willing to corrupt you and make you a film shooter, so ask away with any questions you have. Btw, have you seen Zena or any Hobbit's recently?
Hey all, thanks for the welcome
I'm from Wellington, which is the capital city of this little country!
Haven't seen any hobbits or Xena peeps around but have got many friends who worked on the Lord of the Rings and also King Kong! it's a small country so when good talent is found, they tend to rehire quite quickly!
roteague, good luck for your South Island journey, i've only been to a small part of that island but many of my car club mates have done the full drive and fully recommend it for photography enthusiasts

there's a few Wellington guys here, are you in the city? I'm by the beach in Titahi Bay.
This is a great forum to learn about film and non digital stuff, lots of friendly helpful people here. Welcome!
well, I'm kind of local, out in the hills!! Maungaraki, but work my 'day job' in the city.
Yeah there's a lot of really good stuff on this site, I better hurry up n get myself a film camera again
I've been looking at Medium Format but will probably go the Canon 35mm way as I'm running out of money and if I stick with Canon 35mm I can use my L lens'.
Would you guys be able to come up to Auckland on 30 October?
Possibly.........but I'd have to work it around some shooting in the area which is weather dependant.

I've learned so much and have been here less than a year - only had a medium format about 5 months ago and since then I've built a 4x5 and started pt/pd, cyanotype and gum printing - slowly becoming a tech head
If your into that kinda thing its great - but its also a great community of artists also - looking forward to meeting some
if you cant make AK maybe a Welli get-together ?
