    Hi! I'm Dorothy from Pennsylvania and I sure could use a support group. I love this site and am so thrilled it's available. I love experimenting even if it doesn't come out. That's why I like having you guys around.....
    I just built a darkroom about 3 years ago and am lovin' it except for those times like tonight when everything went pink!

    I shoot mostly 35mm b&w, manual with a hand held light meter but would like to be able to just pick up the camera and go.....without trying to decide which lens, which camera, which film, which tripod, which meter, which filters to take (get the picture?) and inevitably end up with 20 pounds of gear on my back and very few pics.

    I also just picked up a Rollei Twin Lens & a Graphlex Graphic & a Calumet 4X5. Hopefully I'll get to use them before film dissapears.

    I'm really grateful for all your answers to my questions (in advance) 'cause I know I have a ton of them.

    Hello from Australia. From the looks of your recent acquisitions you may well have some questions to share with the forum. I have no doubt you'll get all the support you desire.

    Enjoy!

    Good Evening, Dorothy,

    Welcome from Illinois. Only 20 pounds of gear? Wait until you get serious with the 4 x 5 equipment.
