Re: Lake District Spring 2013

Just got back from the Lakes - weather improved over the rest of the week and by Thursday we saw sun! Had a trip up to Castlerigg but had to hold onto the tripod at all times as it was nearly blowing me over as well as the camera. Last couple of days were blue skies and white clouds - very chocolate...

Re: Lake District Spring 2013

Graham,

No problem - some of the 'experienced' members may be all fingers and thumbs - I haven't used my LF gear for a few years (hangs head in shame) so will probably make a few obvious mistakes before I get back into the swing of things... ;)

Re: Lake District Spring 2013

Hi Charles, You may have my mobile number from before but let me know if you need it again. I'm planning on being there for the Friday evening meal. I notice that Light and Land are having their Lakes workshop on the 15-18th April so we may bump into a few of them if people are hanging around after ...

Re: Lake District Spring 2013

I may have to dust off the gear and drag myself along as I've still got some film left... :)

Let's hope the weather's good enough not to need the tearoom appreciation society :D

Re: Next official get-together: April16 & 17

Hi Rod, Glad you enjoyed it - as you say, Quickloads do seem like a luxury after wet collodion but I don't think I'll be swapping just yet - the convenience is just too great until they run out. The wet plate lads could get their own back and think that we're not 'proper' photographers for using the...

(L - R) Andrew, Charles, Laurene, Joanna, Rod, Josh, Tony B, Tony R, Steph, Helen, Marizu, Dave, & John. We were missing Shirley and her friend for the pic. Also, Mrs T. (Naomi) isn't on ...

Re: Next official get-together: April16 & 17

Hi Tony, Welcome to the forum. Let's hope you find it useful. The gatherings can be a good way to get help if you need it and realise that you're not the only one in LF... :) It's probably better if you don't put contact details on your posts as spambots can pick up emails. If you've posted on a thr...

Re: Ultra Large Format & Focus On Imaging

Two years back I bought a Pentax spotmeter new. IMHO it is still on the Pentax price list.... in Japan ... Maybe if you ask the GB importer he can get one for your ? Georges, Thanks for the info - I'll bear it in mind as I'm not desperate to get another one just yet but you never know... It's still...

Re: Ultra Large Format & Focus On Imaging

I'll second what Tim says. Its always a worthwhile day out. I have bought on recent years my Manfrotto Carbon tripod on a VAT-free deal, my Pentax digi Spotmeter on a VAT-free deal, good deals on the 410 head and the Silvestri 6x Lupe. Looking out to see if anyone is doing an unmissable deal on a 3...

Hi Charles,

Just dusted off the old login and I'll try to keep an eye on developments as I hope to get out to something LF in the year... :roll:
