First day of class!
Today is my first day of darkroom class here at Newspace in Portland, OR! I signed up to learn how to make prints / enlargements. I'm pretty excited!
I've been perusing the classic threads here and am thankful to APUG for all the wisdom contained herein. I'm sure I will come back to my bookmarks again and again.
Wish me luck! :)
The DR is a blast...
Just wait til you start pulling prints.
You will be mia to most of your non film shooting friends.
Have a blast!
Great to hear! I love being in the darkroom.
I took a film photography course last semester at our local community college to see if I liked darkroom work or not. I liked it so much I'm now taking over our bathroom from time to time. :)
Being in my darkroom for hours on end fine-tuning/obsessing over my prints are therapeutic/maddening. It's so much like photography.... (I'm an IT guy so being on computer is more like work)
Enjoy your darkroom time. It's like meditation/(oh, never mind)
Well said tkamiya. Chemical photography is a different work flow. It's more physical. It's more craft like. I would argue well done B&W prints look better than digital.
