    Another New Guy

    Well I bit the bullet and got a Speed Graphic from eBay. Iíve wanted to get into LF and now with the Ex gone I felt it was time to move on to something to fill my time while deployed. I have noticed that my photos have improved with the end of my marriage. No idea why.

    So the camera will be here in a week or two, and in a twist of fate it will be pressed back in to military service. Film will be on the way soon. But with how far I am from any labs itís going to be about a month from the time a take a photo until the time I see how it turned out (and how I totally messed up my first shots). So instant gratification this is not.

    Welcome to the forum Kav and may I be the first to extend my great gratitude for your service!, Also, I have noticed that in times of high stress, emotional discord, or anything of that mind-altering nature that my images also improve. The best pictures I ever took was after a friends passing and my subsequent trip thereafter. Who knows.

    Enjoy!

    Kav - Welcome to APUG! Thanks for keeping us safe! If you need help getting film back and forth, give a holler (my hubby is an O6, soon to be somewhere other than the US).
