After lurking around for a while I finally decided to register and say “Howdy”.

I have to say the APUG is one of the best online communities that I have found. There seems to be quite a few very knowledgably people around willing to share so that others can learn.

I have always enjoyed photography, but have just recently reached a point in my life where I can start to follow that passion.

I am currently in the process of purchasing the Camera & Darkroom equipment that I need and also just got started building my dream darkroom (13x16).

Although I love all subject matter, I plan to focus on doing mainly landscapes.

I have already gained much information from reading the forums, and hope that someday soon I will be able to contribute myself.
