It all started on a boat trip down the Mekong, a sports event at the 700 year stadium and because I wanted to get a picture of some little birds hanging out around my balcony, a pair of owls roosting in the big tree to a pair of Falcons flying around the big circular condo near me... I know, I may never get an actual good shot of them, but the others are doable... and the macro and street photography here should keep me occupied from the occasional boredom.

Ok, maybe I should mention the photo set up at Kad Suan Kaew by the CMU students and the one at Maya by the CMPG kick started me also.

Anyway, I have thoroughly been enjoying my hours and days of research into formats, cameras, lenses, photo apps, lots of "Understanding Photography" and looking at hundreds of compositions that I like and the details about f-stop/speed/ISO....

Ultimately deciding on MFT and specifically on the Olympus models and lenses.

I'm a little late out of the gate on the M1 as the rumor is update coming in the fall... so, I have decided on the M5mk2, with the 12-40 pro lens for my re-entry into photography. Should get me started and keep me busy as it seems to be a good camera and lens with a lots of great reviews.

You all seem to like Photo Bug, so I am going to head over there in the next day or two and do some touching and feeling.

Thanks to a lot of you here with your comments, reviews and links. Great resource, much appreciated.

Hello everyone!

Thanks for the invite on Flickr a few months back. Was in Thailand at the time, and forgot about it. But I like what I see in your photography section, so I might hang around!

Hi all!

First, thanks for the numerous nice photos shown here. I do like many, many...

For my part, I’ve been back to B&W film photography for some years now, and, if film photography allowed here, I decided to venture in this forum…

So, in short, living in Chiang Mai, I spend part of my leasure time to shoot and home-processed B&W films, as well as processing wet-prints in my small but dedicated darkroom.

Though I’m just a hobbyist, I enjoy shooting with my “vintage” gear, ranging from 24x36 to 6x9, and then, under the red safety-light, to make prints come to life.

BTW I know absolutely nothing about digital photography. But I’m ready to learn as in a next future I may be interested to find a digital body to carry my “vintage” lenses and enjoy them for color pics. I’ll ask later on the forum for some advices: your knowledge here will be of great interest…

As well, I don’t own a film scanner (nor a FlickR account nor whatever). I just use my desk scanner/printer to scan some of my prints for sharing with friends. So please, understand quality may not be at its best when I post…

Thanks for reading, and best regards to all!

Ray

Welcome, Ray!

There are a few members here that dabble in black and white... so you won't be alone...

Most of us are hobbyists so no need to worry and also a number of members will no doubt help you...

Perhaps we'll think about starting a Black and White thread and see how much interest there is!

Or you could start your own thread "Gobs, Life in Thailand and what I see"

Thanks for the prompt welcome, Jimmy!

Can't help you to decide for a "new" B&W thread... rolleyes.gif

BTW through the search engine I found no thread related to films and/or wet printing. But maybe I didn't dig enough...

Kind regards,

Ray

Maybe it should be a good idea to begin a B&W line ;

We have already many photos in B&W in the Traditional Street Photos

http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/619712-traditional-street-photography/

and I'm sure we can discover other B&W in other lines...

It's easy for us, on digital photos to transform a color photo in a B&W one .

Ray, you can post all the question you want about digital photos , camera and lenses in the appropriate line

Photography, Equipment, tools

There is a thread here (not obviously named!) which has some film related stuff:

http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/892973-the-ultimate-photographers-guide-to-bangkok-film-and-digital-2016/

Mainly Bangkok related; but might be of interest.

Posted a few photos over the last couple of days and thought I had better introduce myself. I'm a Kiwi in my late 50's and been taking photos as long as I can remember. I'm an amateur an landscapes are my passion. I have a Thai partner from Doi Tung in the north and we sped 4-6 months a year in Thailand with the balance in NZ. The gear I use is Sony which was a natural progression from Minolta for me. Currently using an old A99, 16-35/2.8 CZ, 24-70/2.8 CZ. 70-200/2.8 G, 100/2.8 M and my pocket camera is my trusty old RX100/lll. I have a website in desperate need of maintenance (not my thing so I keep putting it off) but if anyone is interested www.southernlightsphotography.com

Finally everyone who commented on pics I've recently posted THANKS, you've made me feel right at home

cheers

Alan
