    Hello From San Fransisco

    Hello APUG,
    I have been lurking around here for a month or so. I figured it was about time to introduce myself. I'm a big fan of film photography, I was inspired by my father's photography as a child, and now it's my turn to shoot some film. he recently passed down to me a few cameras. A Hassleblad 500 C/M and a Nikon FM2. I also bought a large format 4x5 Toyo View. I just scored a box of unopened quick load Astia 100f from Adolph Gasser in the city for 10 bucks!!!!
    I look forward to hanging around here and possibly meeting some of you. also if any of you know of a good photography class on how to use the 4 x 5 that would be awesome.

    Welcome from San Rafael. I'd be happy to show you how to use your Toyo.
    Check out Glass Key Photo here on APUG, they are also a great local resource.
    Best,
    Rory

    Hello Shawn and welcome to APUG. If there is a local community college near where you live? Maybe some local museums also!
