Mainly landscape, trees, water, abstracts, rocks, flowers, etc. Occasionally portraits. I like to capture anything on a photo that looks beautiful and evokes an emotional response.
Both color and B&W. I use Fuji Provia 100F for color and Fuji Acros for B&W in QuickLoad envelopes.
I get my transparencies and negatives scanned, use Photoshop on a profiled monitor and then print digitally on a digital printer profiled for the specific paper, ink and printer combination.
I primarily use Arca Swiss 4x5. I use Arca Swiss 6x9 when constrained by space and/or weight.

This is the only group in the San Francisco Bay Area that exclusively caters to large format (LF) photography. A relatively small number of LF photographers (LFers) face very different challenges and think differently about photography compared to a very large number of digital shooters. Without a meetup group like this, it would be very hard for this small group of people to talk about LF-related issues and share their unique experiences with other like minded people. I have attended other photography meetups in this area and it would have been impossible to discuss LF-related topics in those gatherings.
