    Hi all. My name is Chris. I shoot film, black and white exclusively (TMX-120 and Neopan400-135). I shoot medium format and 35mm and homemade pinholes (35 and MF). I have a 35mm Minolta MD mount perspective lens (homemade) of course. And I just started processing my own film about a month ago. The cost at my local lab (as well as everywhere else for that matter so it seems) tripled over last year so the finances and excuses became problematic and I took the plunge. Oh, and I suffer from G. A. S. (Gear Acquistion Syndrome) occasionally. Just recovered from a HUGE bout last month. Three lenses, two camera bodies and a temporary darkroom later, I count myself lucky. And my wife has been giving me these funny looks lately.

    Nice to meetcha.
