    I am glad to have found this site (thank you Cheryl!) as I have no intention of going digital.

    I'm Shannon, from Melbourne, Australia, and I'm just starting up my own business of b&w doco style children's portraiture. My Dad was an amateur photog, and I started learning on his Pentax K1000 that he took my baby pics with :smile:. I also have a Pentax Program A and a Canon Elan IIe.

    I haven't been in the darkroom since Highschool, however as soon as I have the funds I'll be setting up my own darkroom and plan on doing all my own printing. I currently get any enlargements done by a wonderful handprinter in Melbourne.

    It is lovely to meet you all!!

    So fun to see all the familiar names joining!

    Aggie, I'm doing my part to even up the APUG gender gap -- if there really is one. :wink:

    Aggie, I'll answer any questions right now. I don't sleep. I gave that up for Lent.

    (Not that I even know when Lent is...)

    No, he has brown eyes and he is actually 1/2 Aussy and 1/2 Blue Healer. 100% crazy but really smart. Come down for the presentation workshop and you can meet him. Rance is his name. Named for the attorney in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Rance Stoddard the attorney.
