    Introduction: New member from South Devon UK

    Hi I'm Shane from South Devon in the United Kingdom,

    After shooting digital for years, for some unknown reason I bought a classic 35mm camera on ebay a few months ago and my analogue addiction started there. I have now overtaken one of our bathrooms and turned it into a darkroom. I love developing my own film and then making real prints. There is something about the archival properties of film that I like. I am looking forward to joining in the Postcard swaps.

    At the moment I am working through a 100ft roll of Kodak Fine Grain Positive film that exprired in 1972 - the images are amazing (to me at least) and they look great at 8 x 10 on old Bromesko Paper from the 60s.

    I just stumbled across APUG whilst browsing - it looks like an excellent place to meet and chat to other like minded analogue photographers, so thanks for letting me in!

    I have attached a self portrait taken on expired FP4+ with my Canon T90 and a few other recent shots on my Canon A-1 that are taken Kodak FGP.

    Canon A-1, Canon T90, Canon FD 50mm f1.4, Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f3.5, Vivitar 28mm f2.8. Loads of Kodak Fine Grain Positive that expired 1972. Jobo C6600 Enlarger and loads of Bromesko and Bromide paper.

    Glad you found us.

    That film you are working on is Orthochromatic (red blind... in fact may only be blue sensitive. It gives quite neat effects, very Victorian like when shot pictorially. I have read that it uis really old Kodabromide paper coating emulsion placed onto a plastic film base.

    I process mine to make unsharp contrast reduction masks. It is quite useful to be able to inspect the density in the developer tray under red safelight when making these masks, since time and temperature are not quite definable for the intermittent use this task gives, and the varied expsoure also.

    So don't shoot it all up; in time you may want to make unsharp masks, and then you wil curese shooting it all up.

    I'm pleased to hear of your newfound film addiction. Enjoy yourself. I have had this fun 'disease' for more than 25 years, and it wanes from time to time, but never goes away.
    my real name, imagine that.
