Greetings and salutations...Joined this forum today in hopes of getting and giving tips on photography. Been shuttering since I was 12 and was taught the basics of composition and darkroom by an uncle who was a professional photographer in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. My cameras are a Nikon photomic FTN, a Nikon D70s, a Mamiya m645, and a Bronica ETRs. Besseler and Omega enlargers. Am now taking the professional photographers course through NYIP and, at 57 years old, starting out on a new adventure to pursue what I have absolutely loved since childhood; Photography. I live in the little village of Glen Ellen, California. Surrounded by vineyards and the Pacific Coast Range and far enough north of San Francisco to have little to no traffic. Looking forward to meeting photo enthusiasts from around the world. Feel free to email me just to chat.
