Large greetings from Sheffield

Post by robert4x5poole » Thu May 07, 2015 2:57 pm Etc/GMT-1+01:00

Hello fellow LF-users

I have just joined up but am not a newcomer to LF, having had a Wista Cherry wood 4x5 for about 25 years. I've been all over the world with it.

I am at a point in my career when I hope now to have much, much more time on my photography, so I am hoping to buy a Linhof Technika before the year is out. I use colour transparency (Fuji Velvia/Provia) and B/W (Ilford FP4 Plus) film, and have a home darkroom. This is used for all my B/W processing and printing and used to be where I made colour Ilfochrome prints. These days, I get the transparencies scanned and have Fujiflex high-gloss prints made - stunning! I use 75, 120, 210 and 400 mm Schneider and Rodenstock lenses.

I'll write more another time.

Robert

In the reply screen there is an option to upload an attachment. It's a tab next to the options tab. If you can't see it then it's possible that you don't yet have permission being a newbie, in which case a pm to one of the mods/admins should help.
