    New frenchie in the APUG

    Hello,

    just a few words to introduce myself to the community.

    I'm a French guy, 37 old, and practice photography since 1982.

    I started with an AE1P and a zoom, then added some lenses and bodies (and old F1 that I still regret as it was some "dense", a T90 that is missing a working shutter...) and moved to th EOS system some time ago with an EOS3 and some fixed lenses.

    My interests in photography are mainly landscape and macro, with some nature shooting. I'm almost "born again" to photography when I stopped shooting only for a nice subject without considering it environment and, more important, the light.

    Interests outside of photography are for sailing (dignhy, cruiser when lucky, radio-controlled boat for competition), model mechanics and reading.

    I'm about to move to Large Format, as it would slow me down and would help making better photographs.

    My favourite photographer would be Ansel Adams, for the vision he gives in his photographs.

    I think that's all.
    Laurent

    Thanks all for your welcome !

    I'll try to get some pictures in the galleries as soon as I'm able to scan them ( I do 80% slides, and have no film scanner (and also because I really hate being on the PC outside of work, looks too much like work). Anyway, I guess I have to do something to show you the nice landscape we have there, near the Loire (no castles for me, just the river and nature)
