    Just a quickie to say hi to everyone. Although I live in South Wales, and indeed was born & bred in Cardiff, I spent most of my adult life working in London & living in Kent - Tunbridge Wells.
    I've worked in photographic studios since 1976, and have vast & unique experience working in all formats from 35mm - 10x8, using everything from Nikons to Sinar large format cameras. I've also worked on animation cameras producing 35mm multi-slide audio-visual presentations, sometimes using up to 57 projectors at a time. More recently I have been printing large format, producing roll up banners, pop ups, & large foamex mounted panels for business exhibitions. These days I spend my time printing gallery quality prints & doing photo restoration from my home, which certainly beats commuting into London!
    I've been taking a look at some of the forums on here, and am sure that I can make a valuable contribution to many of the discussions; so, let battle commence!

    OOOOH YESSSSS! Just read some of the recent threads.

    Welcome Len, with you're experience I'm sure you can be of great help to people here.
    I was interested to read about your AV work, I've never done more than 4 projectors at once; the thought of 57 is mind boggling.

    Thanks for your reply! I run it as a business. I can take people's torn, creased, and/or faded pics, scan them in, restore in photoshop & print out as good as new. I can also scan in transparencies & negs from 35mm - 5x4 & supply on CD/DVD and/or print also.

    I was interested to read about your AV work, I've never done more than 4 projectors at once; the thought of 57 is mind boggling.

    Thanks for the welcome! Basically, what you had was a bank of projectors covering the left of the screen, a bank in the middle, and a bank on the right. The aspect ratio of the screen itself would have been the equivalent of 2 slides projected side by side - the bank in the middle would have overlapped the left & right. Everything in camera would have been shot with pin-registered precision, and the slides mounted in specialist pin-registered slide mounts, made by Wess: http://www.wessmounts.net/
    The slides would have had soft-edge masks inserted to seamlessly merge the images together on screen, so that the effect was of an animation. The projectors themselves would have all been controlled by a 4 track reel-reel tape machine, which would have had the soundtrack on 2 channels, and the projector controlling track on a third. All in all quite a complex operation - something I was involved with in the 80's. These days, of course, it's all done in Powerpoint - so much simpler and vastly cheaper!
