    Yahoo!!!
    I just printed my first B&W-print tonight, it was fascinating to see the image appear in the developer.

    And it was lot easier than I thought, so I'm hooked on B&W now :smile:

    So, color and B&W slides move over, it's the darkside which are calling on me now! :D

    Sincerly Tom

    Congratulations, Tom. I still recall my wonder at that first print, and that was 40 years ago. Great feeling, eh?

    Congrats! I remember pulling my first print in a class situation - and pulling my first print at home, after converting a small unused bedroom into my darkroom. It's an amazing sense of freedom! :smile:

    Con gratulations. Im happy the darkroom stuff is being used, and I look forward to see the results.
    Beware though, in a very short time the LF pushers will try to move you on to 8X10" :D
    BTW how is the Rodagon lens performing ?

    I know! If the LF folks at APUG don't convinces me, I will probably convince myself :D

    BTW it was the Componar I used, not the Rogonar! The Rogonar is only for 35mm, which is way too small now...!!

    I will enjoy it!
    I can hardly wait until it is weekend, and I got time to experiment!
