Mainly the ability to make more local friends who share the same interests as I do.
Name: John_Nikon_F, which happens to be my username on APUG as well. URL: http://www.flickr.com/photos/245gt-turbo Needed a place to host my photos, and some friends had flickr, so I made the leap in 2008.
Nature, mainly, but I sometimes do event photography as well.
I like the groups. The thing I don't like, is the revamped photo page, with the title below the photo and the fact that it sometimes takes a while to load. Although, the groups listing is nicer on the new page.
Film. Nikon 35mm gear, ranging from a Nikomat FTn through a Nikon F FTn, F2AS, FE, FM2n, and a Nikon F4. I also have a Hasselblad 500C/M with two film backs and an 80mm lens. Digital-wise, an old Nikon D1H.
Flickrite from Duvall, WA. A friend of Adam Van Dyke. Mainly shoot analog, but do have a Nikon D200 for my digital photography. I can usually be found drooling over the gear in the Nikon case at Kenmore Camera (and at Glazer's, of course).
Definitely a great group. Looking forward to participating in more events.
