... introduce myself - looks like I´m going to stay at this comfortable place. I found APUG just recently, after the german forum I usually use got beaten up by a handfull of trolls. :-( And I already found a handful of familiar names over here.
I´m Roman, 27 years of age, student in Kaiserlauterns, living at the Mosel in southwestern Germany.
Currently shifting from a technical approach on photography towards a result oriented one... we´ll see how this plays out. I somewhat doubt I can stand it - there are already three enlargers in my darkroom list. ;-)
Gear? Too much. Way too much. Fav´gear is my Kiev88Six with the beautiful 4,5/55 PCS, accompanied with a 1955 Zorkii 3S and the J12 2,8/35, the "Biogon sister". When going on a limited weight either my Minox35 or a Olympus 35RC are stuffed in my pockets and a Rolleicord Vb around my neck. Nice brick and a perfect "stealth cap" when shooting film in the public.
I withstand the digital gadgets and allmost exclusively use bw film (fav is Efke R50 in Rodinal)... my last slide film was exposed 16 months ago, can´t remember myself using a CN film in some years.
My favourite topic is architectural photography, I make use of this in my education... besides that I currently notice a slight shift towards details, structures in pictorial style.
