Hello from France
and more precisely from Paris suburbs .
first i am very happy to join this community
i have read your posts for some time and was impressed by you guys , all this knowledge and wish to share it.
And i think i will learn a lot with you , and i have so many things to learn !
so my photographic history really started 4 years ago , when i bought my first reflex , a digital one, a Nikon D70s.
I was instantly doomed , and became addicted and it is getting worse
then i switched to a Fuji S3 and then gone insane an bought a Leica M6 , which i liked a lot.
then i trade it to buy an M8 , which i finally sold , the sensor is just not in synch with the body quality.
then i bought a Nikon F3 HP , which i still use and love and a Fuji S5 and Sigma SD14 which i still use as well on the digital side.
then it get worse and i found a very good deal for a Hasselblad 500 CM , which i love , aaahhhh this ffllooppp sound !
recently i added a Nikon Fm2n to backup the F3, i just love the all mechanical side of it and i think i even prefer the Fm2n to the F3, but sshhh don't tell the F3 ...
now this where you guys are guilty (well it is always useful to find an excuse ), i found this forum and was drawn to the dark side of the force
i was lucky enough to find a very good deal on ebay 2 days ago and now am a proud (but intimated) owner of a Linhof Technika V , man this is a beauty !
so now comes the learning part and the time where you will see really stupid questions from me , sorry ....
but i promise to share my first attempts with you.
i am mainly a landscape / urban photographer, but i am trying to do a bit of portrait as well now, especially now that i m gonna be a dad next month
