    Hello from Maastricht

    Well, it took me quite a while to finally register here but I made it

    At the age of 18 I started studying photography in Belgium and from that time on I just knew it's something for life.
    Started analogue and digital entered my life a couple of yrs ago due to the people I used to work with. About a year ago I bought the D200 and it's nice but analogue is far more interesting. A couple of weeks ago I was able to lay my hands on some Technical Pan from Kodak and it just blew me away. My digital one has not been touched since and I plan on keeping it that way. Hope to buy a Hasselblad in the near future but the budget is not yet there ;-)
    Films I use are mostly Tri-X. Paper in darkroom I use is Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone.

    Started reading this forum a couple of months ago and got blown away by all the knowledge here! I feel so dumb and unknowing compared to you peeps here :o
    It was Iwagoshi who made me sign-up finally as we talked a lot about photography the last couple of months and I believe I got him into it again.

    So I decided to chime in and say "Hello" to everyone. If some people are interested in what I make, there's a link in my sig to my website.

    Oh, and thanks to all here for keeping b&w analogue alive! It's being really appreciated as in my surroundings I seem to be the only loon who places analogue above digital.

    Hoi, dag, bon soir...

    I visited the photo department at the Hasselt academy. I saw some interesting works there.

    (In het `Landbouwbelang´ is it quite chilly this time of year, I assume.)

    Welcome. And don't worry about the level of knowledge. I've been into photography for 15 years, reading this site almost since it started, and still learn something new here almost every day. I just try to find it inspiring instead of demoralizing.

    Nice you know the Art Acedemy there. They have some nice work indeed.

    Yes, het Landbouwbelang is very cold this time of the year. They have some nice parties there though and if you just keep dancing you'll be fine
    You speak dutch btw?

    Thanx for all your welcome-replies . Looking forward to my apug-future here ;-)

    I was around the art scene for years and thus know those `off´-places.

    Been in Hasselt as well as Genk just last month. I guess I know my way in Flanders. And in Maastricht there is still the Tefaf waiting...

    Yes, I'm fluent in Dutch.
    (but don't ask for my accent...)
