    First day of class!

    Today is my first day of darkroom class here at Newspace in Portland, OR! I signed up to learn how to make prints / enlargements. I'm pretty excited!

    I've been perusing the classic threads here and am thankful to APUG for all the wisdom contained herein. I'm sure I will come back to my bookmarks again and again.

    Wish me luck!

    I took a film photography course last semester at our local community college to see if I liked darkroom work or not. I liked it so much I'm now taking over our bathroom from time to time.

    Have fun!

    Being in my darkroom for hours on end fine-tuning/obsessing over my prints are therapeutic/maddening. It's so much like photography.... (I'm an IT guy so being on computer is more like work)

    Enjoy your darkroom time. It's like meditation/(oh, never mind)
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Well said tkamiya. Chemical photography is a different work flow. It's more physical. It's more craft like. I would argue well done B&W prints look better than digital.
