    NEU TO THE DARKROOM

    Hello. My name is Andrew. I am new to this forum (a friend from Medium format forum told me to check APUG out... poof here I am) I am looking for some people to help and guide me through the process of learning the "darkroom world". I have been doing digital photography for several years (Probably not using actual terms or what not, I use Appels Aperture and iPhoto programs to edit and make my pictures good looking to my standards (which are of course amateur). I am from Montreal Québec Canada and it doesn't matter where y'all are from we could email back and forth -

    I might have stupid questions sometimes so Im looking for time-taken answers because this is how I learn to do stuff... I'd take a course in it, but I have some person issues to deal with to do with Gradation before university and collage, because montreal has several schools with great photography programs

    1) I currently have NO equipment for darkroom, and What kind of room would work? It needs to be vented... ?

    Anyway If ANYONE wants to help me in the future with questions and tips, and help
    let me know

    Welcome to APUG Andrew.

    There are a few here on APUg who are from the Montreal area.

    Myself, I'm at the other end of the country - the south-west corner of BC.

    I'd recommend starting out with a good book and a couple of good internet resources.

    An example book: Horenstein: "Black & White Photography - A basic manual

    From Ilford's web materials: http://www.ilfordphoto.com/applications/page.asp?n=9

    From Kodak's web materials: http://wwwtr.kodak.com/global/en/pro...bs/aj3/aj3.pdf

    There are also some good youtube resources - JBrunner is a moderator here with some excellent posted examples.

    Hope you have as much fun with this as I do!
    Matt

    Hi Andrew,

    Welcome to APUG.

    and:

    You can develop b&W film pretty easily without a darkroom.

    Welcome to APUG, Andrew.

    You can also search this forum by topic. Play around with the search engine (near the upper right corner of the layout). You can spend all day reading good information on exposure, development, darkroom work, etc.

    Because of the tenor of your LFPF thread, http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=84694, I wouldn't want to annoy you by directing you to information written for beginners such as yourself, easily accessible on the web. Frankly, other than apparently seeking an "apprenticeship" with someone in your area, I'm at a loss to figure out what you do want from this or any other web–based forum.

    Well EVERYONE from other places KEEP telling me to come here to this forum, because people are MORE THEN Happy to help new comers and people new to photography, dark room process. I don't want links and book pushed at me, I wanna talk one on one with a photographer (Via email) with questions, someone that would be quite helpful. And currently forums I find not very helpful and more confusing. And I would get apprentice or something in Montréal, but I don't speak french so before that would ever happy I'd need to take french which is a completely different course / source of learning that from Photography. I never took photography in school I just fell into the passion of it myself and started taking pictures when I was 15 years old, and I made some really good pictures (Digital) and I lost them ALL except for a couple developed (Printed) Small prints that I keep. NOW, years later they aren't as great as I thought and was told back then, but that interest is there if you understand me. I am highly interested in going into Photography as much as I can!! Possibly! Concorida and Dawson CÉGEP have programs, only thing is I never finished high school in British Columbia in order to go to POst-Secondary school in Québec (No grade 12) So Im in a complex of issues besides photography. So Im coming to online forums to learn at my own pase with actual photographers, and if I find someone IN MONTREAL that wouldn't mine talking one on one, or showing me the ropes that would be BEYOND awesome - even tho I would be just as happy with emails

    let me know - I currently have a old text book of a friend of mine "Photography, Second Edition "Bruce Warren" BIG thick Gray/Beige book with a picture of a stream. It focuses on NON digital photography, dark room, developing process( B&W) fixing pictures, lighting, film, etc, etc pretty much everything I reckon, but it is a book, and one can't learn anything from just reading a book. and I have specific questions Id rather ask, then read a bunch of books or be re-directed to other links and forums... (Especially when everyone is telling me to come here, and I HATE forums and Im here looking for helpful friendly help
