    Greetings from Ireland

    Hi all,

    I'm David, living in Bray, Co.Wicklow, Ireland. I have been involved with photography on and off for about 25 years. Up to recently it has all been 35mm film/slide, have had my own darkroom for B+W, kit is in my attic but intend to get it setup again soon. I'll admit to owning a DLSR (Sony A100) and while I do like the immediacy of the digital, I won't ever let go of film.

    My passion for photography has got a new boost as I am now involved in running photographic tours of Ireland. This has also lead me to a desire to get into some Medium format work, my travels with tour groups affords great opportunity to explore that format and I have just purchased a Mamiya 645J. Up until now all my kit has been Minolta (SR1, XD11, 500si, Minolta 16 & A100). I enjoy shooting, Landscape, Seascape and old buildings. I only signed up to APUG in Feb, having "hung out" on a Minolta User's group prior to this.

    It's great to be a member of such a vibrant and welcoming community and while there are only a few Irish APUG members, we are active, now planning our third get together since May'07!

    Welcome aboard! Bray is a beautiful place -- you're lucky to live there. Ireland has a super bunch of APUGgers, so be sure to hook up and join their photo trips! Have fun and welcome aboard!

    David,

    Welcome from NYC.

    This is a great time to get the medium format itch. As a result of the digital thing the prices on top quality film gear have come way down. You'll find that quite a few of us 35mm'ers are acquiring MF gear and learning the format. There's plenty of knowldegable folk here to help you out.
