    Hi from Massashusetts

    Hi, my name is Suzanne, and I found this site just surfing, and I've been lurking for a couple of months. There is some great work here, and looks like some great technical info too.

    I first became interested in photography years ago in high school, and even majored in it in college. Then a pesky thing called "making a living" got in the way. But, I was still involved in photography, working as a photo editor at a couple of magazines. About five years ago, after having kids, I found myself shooting more and more b/w film. (You know, black and white naked baby pictures!) I got frustrated with sending it out to commercial labs, and I finally took the plunge about a year and a half ago, and built a darkroom. After close to twenty years, I was happily printing my own work again. It's like riding a bike, you just don't forget!

    For the most part, my kids, their friends and cousins are my main subjects, with an occasional landscape thrown in. In the past I shot 35mm, but recently started shooting with a Mamiya 7. I have also started shooting the occasional "fine art portrait" for clients, and with the start of the school year, I should be able to get some more printing done, and will post some images soon. I'm new to forums like this, and I hope I haven't gone on too long!

    That's a pretty common story around here.

    Welcome Suzanne. Join in the give and take. It's a great site.
    Looking forward to seeing your work in the galleries.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Good Evening, Suzanne,

    Welcome! If you're using 6 x 7, I'm sure you've already discovered how much easier it is to print the large negative compared to 35mm. When you start thinking about 4 x 5, you'll really be addicted.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I've posted a few photos in the standard gallery. I have a lot printing to do from my MF negs, and will post as I get them done. Quick question, if anyone looks in here again, any forums here to help with scanning? I always feel that my scans don't do my prints justice.

    I'm a bit late in joining in, but welcome, Suzanne! It's great to have more "kid shooters" on the board. I think photographing kids forces me to work very intuitively, which is a quality that serves me well in other kinds of photography. If ya want a challenge, photographing kids is the way to go!

    Anyway, welcome.
