    Another Lurker Comes To The Surface

    Hello,
    I have been a lurker here for quite awhile and decided it was probably time to become legal.

    I live in Southern California and I am a full time portrait/commercial photographer who does a great deal of work on 8x10, 5x7 as well as 4x5. I have a small collection of vintage lenses that I prefer to use in the creation of my portraits. My films of choice are Kodak TriX, PlusX, Portra 100T and the usual Portra NC series of Kodak portrait films.

    I do a good deal of my work in the studio with vintage fresnel lights and I prefer a strong chiaroscuro treatment for a good portion of my work. I am also a traditional retouch artist for both negative as well as print but do a great deal of shooting on film then retouch in Photoshop more and more.

    It's nice to be here and I am hoping to learn a great deal more and become a better photorapher by studying and by mere inspiration through many of the excellent Artists' work I see displayed here.

    Thank you Thomas,

    David,
    Thanks. At some point the forum will return in some incarnation, but right now I don't have the time to nurse the site. Forums are labor intensive.

    I'm still learning my way around here so at some point I want to post some new work.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Thomas, David and Michael,
    Thank you for welcoming me.
    Forgive me though, I'm in the wrong place.
    Best Regards,

    Mark,
    I always get that feeling of being in the wrong place. But not here, this is a good place to be. So welcome to the site and enjoy.
