Please indcate whether you are already an LF photographer or would like to get started in LF photography in near future. (If you have no intention of doing LF photography, you may be better served by joining other photography groups.)

I can't think of anything off hand.

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

Everything really, with a focus on fine art.

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?

For B&W I typically shoot HP5, Tmax 100, Rollei IR For Color, I've only really shot Velvia 50, but am looking for a good studio portraiture color film. For B&W development I am a bit boring and generally use D76 or XTol

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?

Either or. When I try to envision the final print, sometimes it includes photoshop post processing, sometimes it doesn't. I generally do scan all my negatives though - as I find it easier to keep them organized on the computer.

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.

At the moment, I've got a Toyo Field AFII, and a small assortment of lenses. I have been considering a lighter weight field camera for hiking - maybe the Toyo CX or one of the super lightweight wooden ones. I'm also thinking of an 8x10 for the studio.
