Hi Bill, Donegal is too far for me but if you are passing through Meath, let me know and we can possibly meet.

Hello,

My name is Eve and I live in Galway, I am new to the APUG website and the entire darkroom scene to be honest. I got my first SLR six years ago and never looked back. I shoot both digital and 35mm and am lucky enough to have come into possession of quite a lot of darkroom equipment.

I have almost everything to get up and running but having never processed a film or a print myself before. I will be looking to you guys for help and encouragement along the way. I have yet to set up my actual processing space but intend to start blacking out windows and mixing chemicals this week, I have a good book but know that nothing beats practical experience so I look forward to receiving tips and tricks from all those that have previously been in my "newbie" position.

I can't wait to be in full control of all my black and white prints and negatives. It's very exciting!

Hi Eve,

Welcome to the Irish section of APUG. There is a camera club in Galway and I'm sure there must be 1 or 2 people left there who still work with film. Check out the Irish Photographic Federation web site for a contact. Of course there is always us.

Cheers
TEX

Thanks for my welcomes. I have about a hundred questions about getting started with the film processing and contact prints etc but I reckon I should head over to the other more specific forums for that. Can anyone tell me where is best to post real beginners questions....? I've had a quick read of previously posted questions but many seem to be above my level of experience.

Hi Eve, just post in the section which bests suits your question, i.e. if you have a question on film, paper or chemistry, use that forum and don't worry how basic you think your question is. Apug is for photographers of all levels.

Hi,
James here, Leixlip Co Kildare. Only registered online this morning - So hello everyone.
So far not a mamber of any camera club, only online when I get a chance. Currently trying to setup a personal webspace.

I hope to pop in/out of forums regularly to learn and share. But if anything is happening local you might think is of interest, please e-mail me.

I'm still using film - Slide mainly, B+W occasionally. Sometime soon - I'ld love to resurrect a darkroom, but that is on end of a long list.....

Hope to say hello more often and see how this forum goes.

Hi Guys and Gals,
I'm Hugh Ennis from Swords -I've been floating in and out of here for a ages but finally feel able to introduce myself as I've just started my own darkroom printing in the last few weeks .I'm taking a 6 month total break from digital and enjoying the first few weeks! I've been using a Seagull 203 (not bad when stoppped down) but have a Fuji GA645ZI on the way from UK as I write .
In the darkroom I'm using a Kaiser VPM multigrade enlarger . I just got 2 boxes of paper Ilford RC MGIV , one gloss one pearl to get myself the feel of things . So far its going ok although I need to resist the tempation to put the lights up everytime I make a print and just go at it more ,
wishing you all well,
Hugh.

Greetings to all.

I 'dipped my toes' in APUG a number of years ago and have returned, having fallen in love - again - with analogue photography. I have a Rolleiflex 3.5F Planar which I have begun to use again after some years with digital Canons.

Looking forward to my time with APUG.

I thought I'd take a quick look over the introduction pages and see where we're all from. It seems I'm the only one from t.w.b.n.

We all have to be from somewhere even if we are the only one, but in apug and the Irish section we are all together (more or less). Welcome aboard.
