    Greetings.. my name is Ross and I'm from the South of England, 7 miles from Stonehenge..

    Here's me at a pub, I've obviously just seen someone with a film camera, that would explain the look of slight awe..

    I've recently set up a colour darkroom and am loving it! I love film, everything from its grain to the little boxes it comes in. Predominantly I'm a 35mm shooter who's using a Leica M6, though I keep eyeing the Nikon F6 and Leica R8. I also dabble in medium format from time to time.

    Nice to be here at APUG!

    Hi from Salisbury, NC, USA! Your city government visits my city often, just as my city government visits yours.

    I envy your use of a color darkroom. When I am able to set up a darkroom, rather than just a temporary blacked-out area, I want to get set up to use color as well.

    glad you found us

    Nice to hear of another colour worker as well. Keep your eye out, or better yet, put the word out. There are all sorts of pros who have gone digital and are unloading tabletop roller processors for making prints. If you are handy mechanically, they can be put in service and make working colour a pleasure.

    Mine is a Fujimoto, which runs on 2L of chemistry per tank,and it does dry to dry prints in about 5 minutes for ra-4. Oh to think of all of the time that I spent pouring chemicals into tubes and drying out daylight tubes...

    Hope that you find this site the trove of great knowledge that I have.

    Hi Ross, Matt here from Birmingham.

    I also print in colour.

    I've resisted the temptation to get into rangefinders so far!

    Welcome from East Anglia, I have printed an awful large amount of colour although i no longer have the room for a darkroom (Children need bedrooms). I also have a Leica (M4p) and 6x7 Fuji RF and my fave Rollei TLR
