    A slow one.

    I use (mostly) large format in various sizes, in (mostly) B&W, on (mostly) immobile or at least slow-moving subjects.

    It just struck me that there might be a connection between slow photography and "slow food"? Both are very important to me - I don't eat "fast food", or use a d*gicam....

    I'd just say that I'm a photographer. I did the corporate photographer thing for about ten years. Now I just like to shoot what moves me enough to set up the camera. My normal subjects range from Landscapes, buildings, to nudes.

    I'm only shooting B&W now, color is just too real for me. Every couple of years or so, I try a roll or two of color film. It just doesn't move me the way black and white does. Or maybe its just a hold over from the corporate thing, most of my work there was color.

    I must say, I can't wait for the Fall colors that are just around the corner here in the East. I'll have my holders filled with plenty of B&W film to capture the wonderful colors.

    Okay, I'll bite.

    I'm an artist.

    Not a very good one, maybe. Unknown, for sure. Not starving, obviously.

    Being able to make pictures to please only myself, I have the luxury of calling myself an artist if I want to.

    What do you think? What type of photographer do you consider yourself?
    I've never really been good with people and am self concious about taking pics of people. (yes I am trying to working on that).
    But with the right model, portraits are almost simple.
    I needed portraits for photo class and a friend of the Mrs' was volenteered. We were both a little unsure at first but she quickly turned out to be a natural! I shot two rolls of 36 in less that 30 minutes, most of the poses were her own doing, required very little directing. I got an 85 mark on that project, many good prints and a little bit more confidence
    Never disregard what your not comfortable with, you never know (yes I still have a rather hard time photo'ing people).
    As for type of photographer, I guess I am urban landscape (if there isn't too many people), natural landscape, still life and macro. Everything I shoot is B&W, much to the disappointment of the Mrs.
    I also would like to get into LF

    I am strictly a hobbyist with too many cameras and an underutilized darkroom. I am a "Dr." and a specialist in Ob/Gyn. I have a Hasselblad with three backs - B&W, color neg, and color positive - loaded and ready to go. I have two Olympus P&S's - an XA and a Stylus Epic - one with B&W, one with color neg. There are three ancient Nikons (F2's) and several lenses. Also there is a Wista Field with several holders - mostly B&W but 1 or 2 with color negative. Right now golf is my main passion but we are beginning to get some snow on the peaks and fall colors are coming!

    I haven't posted for awhile due to other commitments but when I have something of interest I plan to share. When I'm active in photography I really enjoy it. I usually do landscapes - large and small - but rarely do people other than candids of family, especially grandchildren and pets.

    I guess you could say I'm a dabbler, but I have been involved for 50+ years thanks to an early start.

    A frustrated one. I am hoping to go pro (about now). I feel a deep connection with the land in a way that is hard to describe. I could get very pretentious, but have said enough. I am primarily a landscape ohotographer by choice and seek to cpature the effect that the land and elements have on me within my photographs. Sometimes I succeed, often I fail. However, I always love trying.

    I was born in the wrong century. A few hundred years ago, when much of the wilds were still mysterious would have been better. I moved into photography as an art after simply using it to record 'wild' experiences (No hidden meaning). For me it is often escapism, as the real world is often a let down! For me lanscape photography is so very pure. You, camera, the land and the elements....

    I also do portraits (love photographing pregnant women), street scenes, still life etc.

    Good question, and a lot of good answers. I'll take a whack at it, but I don't know whether it'll be accurate or not...

    By subject
    Mainly landscape, with some portraits, candids and a few other things creeping in.

    By medium
    Traditional. I started out on colour print, changed over to transparency when I saw how much better the results were, then fell in love with the darkroom and now shoot mainly B&W.

    By profession
    Amateur, or I'd starve!

    By nature
    Unsatisfied. On the plus side this means I'd always trying to do better. On the minus side this means I'm rarely happy with my results.

    Best I can manage this evening.
