    A new friend from Italy !

    Hello to all, my name is Luigi and I write from Milan, Italy !

    I take a lot of images with film cameras, I got cameras from 35mm to 4x5" and I love to use them all.
    Even if I sometimes use digital, my heart is for film, because it is so fascinating and effective.
    I'm doing home developing for B&W & C41 films, anyway I follow an hybrid postprocessing and scan my negatives after that.
    I have also a DURST 609 enlarger, but I've never been a good printer unfortunately.

    After being a regular reader of this forum for about one year I am now wishing to be more active and participate to the discussions

    Thanks!

    Hi Luigi and a warm welcome to APUG. Have you consider a darkroom?

    welcome Luigi, from another European.
    I also have a Durst (670) and find the printing to be a crucial part of the creative process.
    Having a darkroom is wonderful but it requires space and time - both of which may be in short supply.
    Hope you'll get one some time.
    With APUG you will be in good company.

    Thanks to all friends...when I started to get interested in photography, about ten years ago, I settled up a very very little darkroom in one little bath in the house where I live, and I printed a lot of images in 35mm and 6x6 just to gain ability and control in the process, never being able to reach a good or satisfacory level. (I'm speaking only b&w actually, never tried to print anything color). Unfortunately, I have to say that (surely for my fault) I prefer the resuts I'm able to obtain using an hybrid workflow. So at the moment I'm developing by myself 35mm, 6x6, and 4x5" b&w & C41 and then scan them with an Epson 4880. I still have the enlarger, by the way, and I'm sure that, sooner or later, I will try a second time, hopefully with better results !
    I'm not able in this moment to post anything on the gallery, and even to watch other's images, probably I posted too little messages to gain access to the function, am I supposing right ?
