Hello I'm very new here, having just discovered the site yesterday. I'm sure I am going to enjoy reading the posts and hopefully participating in some of the discussions. I can already see this is a very active and enthusiastic group!
Anyway, I just thought I would introduce myself. I'm a UK photographer and dedicated to black and white photography using traditional methods. I work in mainly 35mm, but am increasingly using medium format. I have for a long time specialised in infrared photography, which I love because of the dreamlike quality that can be achieved.
I photograph mainly landscapes and elements within the environment...but also enjoy working in other areas too.
Printing all my own work is very important to me, giving me the freedom to interpret my images in a personal way, sometimes using toning, lith printing and hand colouring techtechniques to help portray mood, and create emphasis in my work.
Hmmm....well that's about all I can think of to say right now, other than that it is great to find a group like this.
Wecome Kathy, I'm an admirer of your work, and have a copy of your book on my shelf. Look forward to seeing more of your work.
I am dieing to get a look at your photos as I am fascinated with IR and landscapes in general! This is a great place to find info, meet new people (and a few old stale people), and really interact with others who share a common love...real photography!
