    Greetings from another Canadian

    I made my initial foray into photography in the early '60s when I clumsily developed my first roll of b&w 127 negative film from an old Brownie box camera. Man I was hooked big time! Soon I graduated to a Yashica 35mm RF SLR and built a home darkroom in my sister's old bedroom (once she got married off) and moved up to a Asahi Pentax Spotmatic. Next came an assortment of Canon SLRs and my enrolement at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now University) in the Photographic Arts course in Toronto. I ran a fairly successful wedding business and did alot of commercial and PR work for a chemical corporation that I was working for at the time. I am now enjoying early retirement with my wife and have taken up residence in beautiful New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada, a landscapers dream. I have entered into the digital world but I still embrace to purity of film and shoot regularly on my 2 Mamiya 645 MF cameras.
    I'm pleased discover this site and meet all of you!

    Hi Ron! Welcome from a former Torontonian living in Japan. I also studied photography at Ryerson in its Continuing Ed program. This is a great site -- I'm sure you'll love it here.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Welcome from the other end of the country!

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
