New guy here from Louisiana
« on: February 22, 2021, 20:34:00 »
Hey, folks.  I've been lurking for a year or more and finally decided to register.  I've had difficulty getting on the site for the last week or so.  When I got in today I decided to join.  I really like what I've seen here and I hope I can offer some small contributions.

Been a photographer since about 1973.  From 1976 through 1991 I worked as a news photographer for a daily paper here in Louisiana.  With newspapers dying out, I wisely left the business and took a job in public service until I retired in 2010.  Since then I've been totally worthless but I'm still enjoying myself shooting photos, mostly digital B&W.  I started serious photography with a pair of Nikon F's and since then I've used various cameras and formats.  Today I shoot with Fujis, mainly X-Pro2's, and several different Nikon DSLRs, DX and FX.  I like the older DSLRs, I'm not a fan of EVFs in mirrorless cameras.  I love the bright lines in the OVF of the X-Pros because it reminds me of when I used Leicas but I'm an SLR guy at heart and Nikon was my first love.
