    My motivation comes from the fact that I've never created prints using an enlarger before. After a recent shopping spree on that auction site, I've got everything set up, a copy of Ilfords "Making your first black and white print", and two rolls of negatives. I'm just about to start once I've had lunch.

    Wish me luck!

    Good for you. A few hours after you posted I should ask how you got on ?

    I've been using film for over 40 years, and printing my own negs, the buzz and highs you get from producing great negs and prints is amazing way above anything else . . . .

    And thats speaking of today when I remembered all the images I'd made last September but not seen. Now all processed and the first printed !

    Learning to print is a steep learning curve, don't be afraid to ask for help & advice.

    It was a fun afternoon! I made about 20 prints in total, at this stage just trying to experiment and record what I did to learn from it rather than concentrate on getting one or two images to perfection. To my surprise 3 prints turned out very well. I'm really pleased with them, although no doubt my opinion of what constitutes a good result will change as I gain experience ;-)

    I will have many questions, this evening is going to be a bit of a post-mortem comparing prints and notes so I can work out what I need to learn more about.

    Yup! I did finish the 8x10 b/w and the 5x12's this weekend. I am determined that I will take the 8x10 E6 to the lab today along with a bunch of color stuff that has been waiting for a while to be developed for some reason. :o I will be needing my 8x10 holders in the next few weeks for a workshop, so now is the time to get it done.

    I even managed to make a couple of prints last night.

    I love the smell of selenium in the morning

    Haven't made any prints for.....WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY too long. New darkroom being built and I'd rather have a good session in there than a month in a sunkissed tropical paradise with Cameron Diaz .......How soon is now?
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
