    First Darkroom Prints!

    Hello everyone, this is my first time posting (I think, I can't remember posting before!) and first time printing! Just wanted to share my first photographs with you. It was such an exciting process, if it weren't for my busy studies at the moment I'd be right back in my local darkroom but as it is I'll have to wait till next thursday .

    Anyway, without further ado, here they are in order of creation! (Sorry about the subject matter, I'm an architecture student)









    The scans really don't do the prints justice, coming from digital I really was surprised how beautifully they came out. Anyway I think the last one's my favorite, but feel free to pick your own!

    All the best. Jacob

    (P.S I hope I've posted the images right.)

    They show great promise, stunning really, for a first effort. Much better than my first prints. Congrats! Welcome to APUG.

    Thanks! Yeah I was really pleased with them but it wasn't all me,this is my second week at a black and White photography class. Last week was film processing and contact printing. Anyway I think I got a huge head start just through regularly reading these forums and watching your videos on YouTube!

    As for the technical side, they were all shot on FP4 with an old pentax mg and 24mm 2.8 lens, in fact it's the very first camera my dad used to learn photography decades ago. Developed with ilford chemicals (ilfosol 3 for the film) on kentmere rc 5x7 paper.

    Can't wait to wade through the backlog of negatives I've been shooting for the last few years and see what else I come up with!

    They are printed very well. Nice job. Are you using Variable Contrast filters? I started out without them (bad idea.)

    Jacob,

    Are you taking a photography module related to your architecture course?

    Not only are your prints rather good (I look forward to doing some one day soon) but your composition and over all eye for this type of photography is also rather good.

    Welcome to a great community

    Very well done. Give up digital and come join us permanently.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
