Hi everyone ! Nice to be here ! I am new to this forum, but not new to photography. I was a member of the Nottingham (UK) co-op camera club way back in the mid 90s, and learned all my photo skills there. I got to a point where I was winning most of the club competitions every month and decided I had gone as far as I could at club level. The only next step was to either turn professional or give it up to save the expense of developing etc. All my photos were on slide film and don't transfer well to digital (as you probably know), but i will post some of them to show what I used to like photographing. Thanks for the welcome Adam.

Brian.

Welcome to the forum, those heady days of Ektachrome 64 seem like only yesterday.

I note your current location, are you a Brit in exile now or were you an American in exile?

Old camera

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone ! The old camera I used way back when cell phones only did calls, was a Praktica MTL 5, with a 35-50 and a 70-200 zoom lense.
