Introductions are in order

Started in photography sixty years ago; broke my heart when I gave away all my cameras, enlargers, developing equipment to a start-up photo school some years ago -- everything from a little Pen-F to the 4X5 view camera I built. But photography, thank the Lord, was included in the cyber explosion, and a guy has to keep up. And a lot that I learned or figured out with film still applies, though admittedly it's gotten easier to do magic with a camera these days. So much easier, I'm afraid, that excellence is within everyone's grasp, now; spectacular photography has become the yardstick by which photographers are measured.

Many of use still love those old film cameras. You will find many threads on film pictures. Show us your old pictures; there is a thread just for such early work.

Just tested out my first and new Pentax k-5iis camera and am loving it. I shoot in SoCal mostly urban/street stuff. Hi everyone.
