    new guy

    Hello everyone, I just found this site yesterday and signed up, I am from Long Island NY. I just picked up a Minolta Maxxum 9 the other day to get back into shooting film. I grew up with a father who always had a Pentax MX hanging around his neck and a darkroom in our garage. I took a few photography classes in HS and college. then switched to digital. I miss toying around with film so decided to get back into it. I am hoping to build a small b&w darkroom in my basement someday soon (my wife and I just had our first child and we are currently putting an addition on our home)

    Glad you found us and it's good to have you here. If you haven't already seen them, two excellent ongoing threads with gazillions of hints, tips and tricks (and illustrations!) for building and using darkrooms are:

    Darkroom portraits
    Bathroom and other Temporary/Makeshift Darkrooms

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
