    Actually the best way to do that is to post a message inviting folks to join in the chat room. Theres a forum for that I think. Then just log in and wait to see who shows up.

    Greetins all,

    After hanging about about for a few days I actually looked far enough down on the forum to find *this*

    Me, me, me.

    Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Spent the first couple years of my life sniffing dev, stop and fixer (my folks ran a small studio at home in Chicago)

    As a kid used to use my parents Rollie and was eventually given the old exacta as my own... Lost all that in a fire as a teen and didn't take a photo again for 20 years.. Eventually bought a digital and after a couple years of that went looking for more. Now I have a rollie again, and an old Burke and James 4x5. A confused looking Darkroom and a mess of 35mm and other strange stuff.

    In one way or another my work has been photo based the last 3 years. Now I'm moving a little more towards the fine art side and am working on my first couple of exhibitions..

    Besides traditional b&w I print with Cyanotypes, vandyke and a teeny bit with gum (ain't that good with gum yet)

    Well that's it for now.

    It's been nice reading the forums and trading a few messages with a few of you already.

    Cheers,
    Ian

    I've been a member for awhile but mostly as a lurker. So...

    I've worked in the Information Technology field in computer support for the last 8 years so I'm certainly no stranger to computers and digital imaging but I've never been interested in digital photography. For me, its always been about traditional processes.

    I started taking my first pictures in the early 1970's, soon after high school. I spent about 2 years with 35mm, then sold my 35mm cameras because I wasn't getting the quality I wanted and bought a 4x5. After using a Zone VI 4x5 for over 20 years, I finally made the jump to 8x10 this month (December). It not the latest and greatest (an Ansco 8x10 and Turner Reich 12/19/25) but it will get me started.

    Although I may enlarge older 4x5 negatives, I've decided to work only with contact prints for new work. I'm currently using pyrocat, amidol and Azo. Its not a question of a 'magic bullit'. It about being drawn to older/traditional processes and not wanting to accept anything less than what I consider the best material for me at the moment. (90 - 95% of my photographs are taken in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina.

    Jasper is about 20 minutes from Chattanooga. I was born in Chattanooga but raised in Nashville so I know the area of the country that you are referring too.

    You're not too far from the Atlanta area, I used to go out to your neck of the woods (Charlie Smiths property in Fiery Gizzard Cove) to go caving quite a bit. I still like visiting to take pictures. Theres a few other APUG folks here in the Atlanta area, perhaps one day we can have a get together for pictures, food, and socializing somewhere scenic we all like to go to.
