    Hello,

    I just found this site from the Fedora Lounge and it is exactly what I am looking for. I usually shoot either a P-5 Pentax 35mm or 4x5 Graflex. I just built a garage that I am going to turn into a darkroom eventually. So I will be asking lots and lots of dumb questions as I have not been in a Darkroom for years.

    I just can't wait to get going again especially at night in San Francisco with the trolly cars!

    Mike

    Hi Mike - welcome to APUG. There are quite a few threads here about people building their own darkrooms, so there is already a lot of information that should help you. But feel free to ask -- people are quite helpful here!

    Hi Mike--
    Welcome to APUG. If you find yourself in San Francisco, stop by my little shop...I have flyers/class listings/etc. for a bunch of the local rental darkrooms, etc. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Glass-Key-Photo/119199231470385
    If you like night photography, check out the Nocturnes (assuming you haven't that is...) they do all kinds of night photography. Great stuff!
