    Hello New England...Maine calling...

    Just joined for a year after a 3-month trial. I was heartened to see that APUG had 20,000 subscribers, and I'm hoping the film and chemical makers are taking note (especially Ilford). The constant battering of this digital thing is rather vexing, though it's becoming less so as I more and more appreciate the beauty of b&w film. I just hung (hanged?) 13 photos at the local library, and the delicious richness of the b&w tones is just plain unmatched.

    Been using a variety of cameras ranging from a Rollei 35s to a Rolleiflex TLR and FM3a, but sold them all for a Hasselblad 2000 kit, considering it my "walk around large format". The negatives are spectacular, and it is truly a pleasure to search out a subject worth spending time on, set up the gear, contemplate the composition, consider the settings, and finally expose the negative. What a joy, yes?

    Anyway, I note that New England has the highest replys/ views of all the regionals, so I hope to see more NE info--meetings, meetups, exhibits, calls for work...and I'll kick in whatever I can.

    Welcome from western MA. I recently subcribed to apug after attending a photo shoot at the Quabbin. The photo shoot was emotionally uplifting. It was wonderful to be around a group of photographers who have not been tarnished by the digital world and just enjoyed each others company during the days activities. Help!!!! I recently developed a roll of Tmax 100 developed in HC110 as part of a Zone system test and the edges of the negatives have a pinkish hue. Is that normal for tmax???????

    Hello Nick;
    Not unusual, Tmax seems to have a lot of dye in it. Most of it should come out in the fix or wash. But if you fixed and washed adequately, what remains is not supposed to cause problems, according to the great yellow father.
