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 want to meet with other members of the lunatic fringe....I mean, LF photographers.

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

light, shape, and texture in the landscape. Right now I am working on a large project to photograph the Nevada landscape. A little portraiture as well.

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 all analog, except for some worth with digital negatives for large platinum/palladium contact prints. I also work with silver chloride papers (Azo and Lodima). I have used pyro developers for a long time, but I am finding that current films and my seeing are moving me back to non-staining developers. Depends on the print I need to make.

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?

both, I sometimes make and use digital negatives for contact methods. all prints are done by traditional methods.

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 and WP Ebony, 8x10 Toyo field, and a Ritter 8x20

Introduction

I've been working in LF B/W since the mid-80's. I do physics for a living. Both are right-brain endeavors..
