Hi from North Devon, UK
Hi all, not to good at writing essays so will keep this short and sweet.
I am new into the world of film and medium format. I've been shooting with DSLRs for about five years but have cleared it all out and replaced it with a Bronica sqa. For now I'll just be developing but hopfully when I figure out where I hope to be able to print too.
Living in North Devon I feel quite fortunate being surrounded by a vast variety of land/seascapes and have exmoor and dartmoor on the doorstep.
Using the Bronnie has shown me how little I actually know about photography and because of that I feel excited everytime I pull it out of the bag.
Well there seems to be heaps of information here and some very insperational photographers so I look forwards to learning and maybe some day contributing to the site.
Hi Stephen, welcome to APUG. It is good to hear you are getting excited about your photography again. :)
Even if you do not have room for a darkroom at the moment, with a changing tent, contact frame, and a daylight print processing drum you would be able to contact print your negatives. And beleive me, small is beautiful. Those little 2¼ square prints can blow you away! :D
hello stephen from the SE
Hello from the Isle of Wight.
I have been a regularly visitor to North Devon. I often stay at a farm in Chittlehamholt. Hope to get there again soon.
The Bronica SQa is a very nice camera, I have been using mine for over 20 years and it has given very good service.
Welcome to the forum Stephen.
You will definitely love using the bronnie, I certainly enjoy using mine, but I like the results more!
Stephen - Welcome to APUG from western New England USA.
Welcome to the group, Steve-O, from the First State.
Yes indeed: an excellent part of the country for landscape & seascape photography!
Have fun, Bob.
Welcome from almost the dead centre of England. Well it can feel like that at times:D
