    Hiya from Austin, TX

    I realized I haven't posted in this forum, yet...

    Howdy - I'm Dave Re, from Austin, TX.

    I'm actually returning to film after a long (well, 4 year) period of shooting exclusively digital. I inherited a raft of analog gear from my grandfather, and have been sorting out a couple of nice kits, and I'm looking forward to putting it to use. I have a nice 'blad rig, a Linhof Master Tech, a Linhof Super Kardan, and a Speed Graphic 4x5 (w/ working focal plane shutter). Super cool stuff

    I have to admit to being thoroughly overwhelmed, at this point, with the sheer amount of information on this site. How does one even pick a film and developer combo, with all this choice??? :lol:

    I intend to follow a hybrid workflow (shoot and dip film, scan, and do the rest digitally) - so a lot of my questions may not be appropriate on this forum, but I still have questions/concerns that apply here. The hybridphoto.com site doesn't have near the traffic this site does, but I understand the desire to keep those subjects somewhat separated...

    Anyhow... glad to be here...

    Dave

    Dave,

    Welcome from NYC. You're correct about hybridphoto.com being more appropriate for your workflow. BTW: a number of us are members of both - but I don't get over there very often.

    While posting hybrid queries to fora here is a no-no - you can certainly PM folks you run into who may have info etc. you need.

    Hi Dave, welcome from Hawaii. I've got family in Austin, but haven't visited there for almost 20 years. I should someday.
