I've just discovered this great forum in the last fews days. There is so much information, knowledge and experience here, it will take weeks to read through it all!!
I live in Melbourne, Australia and my day job is designing database software, GUIs for a freight forwarding company.
So far as photography goes, I completed my photography diploma back in 2002 by studying part time over many years. From my study experiences, I gave away 35mm (literally!) to "focus" (get it!) on medium and large format.
We had to shoot medium format in 2nd year so I got hold of a used Mamiya RB67 with a 90mm lens...I added a 65mm a couple of years later. I still take it everywhere!
Early this year I was lucky enough to get hold of a Toyo 45G, 3 lenses, viewing hood, Polaroid back, a dozen double dark slides for A$900 (eBay!)
My main interest is fine art but I enjoy all aspects of image making.
One thing I've learnt is that there's always something more to learn/discover and serendipity is a wonderful experience!!
