Just found your forum and decided to sit and stay a while. Amature photographer that dabbles into quite a few different formats. 35mm up to 4x5lf. Nikon and Canon digital slr's as well. I still shoot film along with digital. I process at home as well with a Jobo processor. I no longer have an enlarger, but want to get one again. But have no space for it at the moment. I loved photography since a young kid and must have picked it up from my father. Even though they divorced and moved away when I was very young. For a time he owned his own photo store after their seperation. I have not consistantly been at it. Mostly in big cycles. Lots as a young kid, not so much in high school, but again in college. Then when I first started work got I out again. And now for the last 6 years or so, into it more than ever. Probably my most favored hobby, though not the most consistant one. I still consider myself in the learing stages. And ultimately would like to change careers to it as I get older (and hopefully wiser). I have been somewhat active in a Canon and a different Nikon board and am looking for something different. They are so afraid to mention the competitors equipment it's really starting to bother me. So I was on the search for a site with alot of information but not brand specific (information on all, not just bashing the other). So I will be hanging out. Wasting my employers time, hopefully learning more for my planned escape.
