    Greetings!!!

    Hello to all you New Englanders! Thanks for the welcomes over in the welcome threads. I live out in the Grafton area and have taken several darkroom courses at the Worcester Art Museum. Those courses and this site convinced me that it was time to get back into photography. I'm currently working out the details of putting together a darkroom in a spare bathroom.

    Another welcome John... I think Suzanne lives up in your neck of the woods. Do you think you can make it to the get together on March 25 in Springfield?

    Welcome from Franklin, MA! APUG's a great place to get all kinds of help on building and using a darkroom. Hope you can join us in March.

    I might be able to make the get together in March if you don't mind having a small formatter lurking about. I don't know much about large format so a seminar on large format portraiture may be beyond me right now. I would enjoy watching how it works as well as taking a few candids of the proceedings if that would be ok.

    I don't use LF, either, but I'm very interested in learning how to light portraits. And it's a good group just to hang out with.

    Welcome to the group John!

    And I second what Winger said, it's a good group just to hang out with!!!

    I don't do LF either, I just recently started MF, so I'll be bringing my camera & tripod and I will enjoy picking up some lighting and portraiture tips too, I am almost afraid to even be around LF cameras, because I might fall in love with one, and then there goes the budget!

    Good luck with your darkroom bathroom, I have the same set-up here.

    Cheers, Krystyna
