    It seems like I have been desperately google searching all sorts of specific and general photography phrases trying to find a forums just like this for the last few days.

    I have been interested in photography for about ten years, in my own low tech kept to myself sort of way. I have been slowly working on putting together a darkroom. I have a Durst m600 enlarger (sans lens for the moment, and a few bolts - I think), a pentax mv and a whole slew of toy and junk cameras.

    I am glad to have finally found you, off I go to read posts for the next hour or so.

    Welcome from western Canada. If you like real cameras, darkrooms and chemicals, this is the place to be. Lots of genuine experts here who are all happy to share their knowledge (not that they all agree on every single little thing)!

    Welcome from Thunder Bay. This is a great place. IMHO, the most "civilized" photography site on the net.

    Welcome to APUG, it's a great place to learn and share with others.

    If you have the enlarger lens board, let me know which one as I have a lens can send you. PM your address and I'll get it out next week. It's nothing fancy but it will get you started. I'm using a Durst M600 as well and it's a fine enlarger to work with.

    Be sure to post pics as you can.

    Eli

    Hi Jesa,
    Welcome from New Hampshire. Just FYI - excellent enlarging lenses are going dirt cheap on ebay these days.

    Jesa:

    1) Welcome, from the West Coast of Canada;

    2) Eli's gesture is the sort of thing you'll see in APUG, because:

    a) there are lots of generous people here, and

    b) just about everybody here has more gear than they really need :smile:.

    You'll enjoy it here.

    Matt

    Hello Jesa. Welcome from Denmark.
    Ole I'm a bit confused here. #The best "real photography" forum...........#
    I thought it was the only "real photography" forum :smile: There are off course a lot of very good Alternative photography sites like F295, Alternative photography, Large format forum and D****** photography forums etc :D

    Kind regards
