    Hi,

    I've been lurking for a few weeks and just registered today. I'm glad this forum exists and that this info is available to keep film alive. I think film is a nice place to go back to after viewing all of the digitally enhanced images that are all over the internet today. To me, digital would be like trying to get warmed up by a central air system whereas film is like warming up next to a nice warm woodstove after you've been out in damp cold weather.

    I recently acquired a darkroom for free and just made some prints yesterday. I'll post an example (seeking some advice) in another post.

    Regards,
    Mark

    Welcome to APUG! The Finger Lakes region is really nice. Of course, a lot of upstate NY is nice.
