  1. I got to see my new darkroom!!!

    Have you ever had that feeling that something was just right? When we decided to look at the home we are buying we had no intention of moving. We love our old house even though it is kinda small. I just drove by this new house and had to go look inside. It immediately felt like my home. I loved everything about it (except maybe the orange carpet)!It was built in 1921 and was so much like the home I always knew I wanted to live in. I saw the locked room in the basement and was told that it ...

    I just love this old camera and have taken quite a few amazing shots with it. The focus ring has been stuck at 10 feet and the bellows are like swiss cheese since I got it though so it is time. I have used black fingernail polish to repair the holes a few times but a couple of the holes are not pin holes and can not be sealed properly anymore.

    I found quite a bit of restoration info on the web and have even found directions and templates for a new bellows. Since I paid under $20 ...

I had a deadline that I wanted the room done in time to get involved in the postcard exchange and my Husband (Ed) almost got it done by the end of April! The plumbing was in 2 days ago and the wireing is done now! Ed just has a few things to finish up to make ...

    Well, the darkroom is not a room yet but is getting there. I have my first roll of black and white that I can develop in my camera. I have all my supplies and equipment for the darkroom. I'm hoping that by the end of February I'll have my first print! If my room isn't done I will just set up a temporary darkroom in the basement. I have read everything I can get my hands on and the past posts from this group have been invaluable.

    I'll let you all know how it goes! Thanks for ...
  5. My thoughts on my new hobby

    by , 01-03-2009 at 11:51 PM
    I have not been this excited about one of my hobbies for a long time (and I have a lot of hobbies). I find myself sitting for hours trying to find equipment, reading all of the posts here and searching every photography site I can find!

    I have nearly gotten everything I need for my darkroom, except the room, but I can set it up anywhere that I can make light proof for the time being and the supplies wich i will have to order soon. I can't wait seeing that first print that I develop ...
