I have been lurking on APUG for quite some time and have been studying many of the old photography methods. Finally decided if people like me keep lurking this forum is going to die off.
I hope there is some way to get more interest into the topic of emulsion making as I look there were a lot more posts in the past than there are today. I see an increased interest in glass plate, tintype, etc. photography online but it does not seem to be translating into more interest here. I hope we can convince PE and others to write more photo engineering information as I know I find the science of photography to be as fascinating (or more so) than the rest of the photography process.
Anyway been setting up a chem lab/darkroom and will be testing various formulas that I have found here and in old books. I hope to be able to contribute something useful as well. I am sure my significant other would like to thank APUG and The Light Farm for making me obsessed with photography again and the loss of space taken up by cameras, film, and chemicals.
