    Been at this for nearly 50 years, it's still magic watching a print materialize in the developer tray!!!!!!!!!!

    And so much better watching it materialize than watching a print roll off the printer.

    Sarge is a H.S. friend of mine on the f/295 pinhole forum, he's the first one I heard use that phrase.

    BTW, I lament the dearth of women in the forums too, I want to see more of you practicing this art form. Then again the forums may be so testosterone laden that they are keeping their distance.

    Re: Arista Film from Freestylephoto

    I think the mechanics of reading/posting fits the male brain better in some way that's not well understood.

    All online stuff is mostly dominated by males unless it is a topic that is extremely female oriented.

    So a gender specific topic will garner a gender based audiences, but a gender neutral topic will "usually" thin down to a males dominated group. I suspect exactly the opposite would occur if it were a face to face group like a community group of quilters.

    I remember the first time I saw a picture develop in the tray in my photo 1 class. It did seem almost magical. Just because we know how something works, doesn't mean its not magical or a miracle.

    Oddly enough, there seems to be a larger proportion of women over at the large format forum, and I also note that Jenni is shooting 4x5.

    Humm...dunno about that. The pilot forum I frequent most often has a lot of very active women posters. Considering the overwhelmingly large male demographic among private pilots it seems the women are more likely rather than less to post. I suspect the same thing in (analog - doubt this holds true in digital) photography.

    Actually I was quoting the famous line from Apocalypse Now, it's Kilgore's quote "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" I love the lighting in that move some of the best lighting on the silver screen. I didn't love the movie though but I do use that quote for many different things. I'll bet you a dollar Sarge got the quote from the same movie.

    I do notice one thing different, and this is only an observation I have seen. Women tend to photograph portraiture, while men are more apt to do nature and architecture. I could be wrong. But from what I can tell women want the human connection. I have not poked around ya'll galleries to see if I'm right but I'd wager on that too.

    So back on track, thank you all for your advice and help with me troubles, Thank you very much I shall soon be a ninja in the darkroom .
