    Hello from Italy.

    Well Italy for the time being, i am only here for 6 more weeks.

    My name is Michael West but i go by West or as far as the internet is concerned "FootNote"

    I have been on and off with photography for a while now. Recently just getting back into it. Hopefully will be even more into it once i get back to the states. I started off with a digital Nikon D70 great little starter camera. Recently, 8 months ago or so i went out and got myself amazing camera, the Mamiya C330. Love.It. My main attraction to it was the fact that it was diffrent then other cameras being a TLR rather then a SLR so yes, i did buy it for looks and i have no problems admitting that But i have to say along with being a great looking camera it takes some steller shots.

    And real recently, (just got it in the mail Monday) i got my first LF camera, the Calumet 4x5 Not sure exactly what model but its from the 60's and in near mint condition, for a small price of $175 (and it came with 7 film holders) so i deffently got a great deal on that. I just bought some film for it and its on its way.

    I find myself useing my Nikon gear less and less these days (I also have a Nikon F5)

    As far as what my interests are, i would love to be a second shooter for wedding photographers and i am also interested in event photography and wildlife photography (Granted i have not done any of these things besides on a small scale) I also work with models just as a hobby.

    Any advice comments or good shoping tips feel free to PM me or let me know here

    Thanks.

    Welcome to APUGland from another C330 user!

    Welcome Michael, from the west coast of Canada.

    I've shot a fair number of weddings using my C330, but I think you'll be hard pressed to find many opportunities to use them in that environment now.

    Matt
