Please indicate whether you are already an LF photographer or would like to get started in LF photography in near future. You don't need to own LF camera gear to join this group.

Just about anything.

What are your photography subject areas (e.g. landscape, portrait, etc.)?

landscape, portraiture and still life

Do you do B&W or color or both types of photography? What film do you use? If you use traditional darkroom, what developers do you use?

b&w only. I print color for others, but b&w is where I live...

Do you use digital techniques (scanning, Photoshop, digial printing, etc.) for producing the prints or you use traditional darkroom or both? What digital printers and papers do you use? What traditional darkroom chemisty and papers do you use?

I've been using Ilford's Delta 100 in Xtol in a Jobo. It's been working very well. I scan them on an Aztek Premier 8,000 ppi drum scanner. I have twin Roland 54 inch inkjets, one that is setup of color, the other for b&w. Lately, I have been printing on handmade Japanese Kozo.

What type of LF camera(s) do you use (e.g. 4x5" Arca Swiss)? It's perfectly okay to join this group even if you don't have an LF camera yet.

Canham 8x10 these days with Rodenstock Apo Sironar S 12 incher. I am also testing the 4x5 Ebony with a 150 Sironar S, to see just how close I can get to the quality of an 8x10. It's a challenge, but I am motivated because those 8x10 holders are really heavy!


I've been an LF'er since the 1970's. I have an MFA in Photography from Pratt Institute. I've taught at Parsons, Cooper Union and the new School in NY. I have a business (EigerStudios) that does film scanning and printing for other photographers.

What Lenny E. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love this group. What a great bunch of nice people. I feel like I have a lot of new friends. I just went around and looked at some of the other local (and frankly, closer) photo groups. So many grinning faces, almost all beginners with their digital cameras taking pictures of flowers and other cliches. The folks here are trying to do the best work they can, lugging around large cameras, developing thoughtfully and carefully, etc. Its a much more focused and fun group...
