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've been shooting LF since 2011, mostly landscape.

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


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?

99% b&w, and my primary output is the darkroom. I currently shoot TMX and 320TX, developed in HC-110. In the process of trying Pyrocat HD out.

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 scan for proofing and for posting on Facebook.

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.

4x5 Linhof Master Tecnika with 110mm Super Symmar XL, 150mm Fujinon-W, 210mm Apo-Sironar-N, and 240mm Fujinon-A.


A Swede living in the SF Bay Area since March 2011, working in "tech" (no kidding!). Been shooting LF since moving here, and starting to get the hang of it.

What Mathias S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I can't think of a better way to learn large format photography, or with a better group of people, than this group. Five stars!
