Hello from the Missouri Ozarks


I have been a lurker for quite some time and decided that today would be the day to officially join the forum. Photography is the main thing that is keeping me from going stir crazy right now. Anyway, a bit about myself. Photography has been a passion of mine for 30+ years. I started out in the "film days" and reluctantly switched to digital several years ago. I have shot in many different formats, before digital, with 35mm and 6x9 being the common for me, although I love my 5x7 field camera.

I am not much of one for liking change and I was very happy when I stumbled on a blog from a photographer that uses classic, manual focus lenses on his DSLR. I picked up a couple of adapters for my digital cameras and instantly had access to my collection of film lenses to use again! This was one of the best days for me since switching to digital.

My main photographic interests are:

Nature (landscape, wildlife, woodland, etc.)
Alternative Process
Experimental/Special Effects

My favorite classic lenses that I use are M42 mount lenses. I have already learned a LOT from the time I have spent lurking here and I know that I will continue to learn more and more. Part of my reason for joining though is to be able to share with others information and skills that I have learned over the last 30+ years of photography. Thank you for this great forum.

I am in Denver but grew up in the St Louis area and spent a lot of time in the Ozarks. Welcome. I am old film camera user and have a long list of cameras that I have and still use. I know you have much to share.
