    Hello from New York

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Ryan, and I teach instrumental music in the Adirondack mountains of New York. The photography bug bit me about a year ago when I found a Yashica FX-3 at a garage sale for $8, it has been all downhill since then! I soon found a Rolleiflex, Canon AE-1, Bronica ETRSi, and have been having a great time with them all. I'm also an active hiker, and there have been plenty of times my pack was weighted down with more camera gear than food and water.

    I figured it was time for the formal introduction, because this site has been an awesome resource these past few months! I found a Beseler 67s enlarger off craigslist a few weeks ago and have been reading all about the printing process. My darkroom time has been limited because of a recent move to a bigger apartment, but I can't wait to get back printing again. Thanks for having such a great site here!

    Welcome.
    I love the Adirondacks - is the foliage changing already? I've been pondering a 'foliage photo trip'.

    No, no, it's uphill. Welcome.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.
