    Greetings from Switzerland

    Hi everyone,

    I have been have been a member for a little while and I have been reading/lurking but the time has come for me to be a little more active. I am in Switzerland and an avid enthusiast of analogue photography. I have a make-shift darkroom at home which I don't get to spend enough time in. I started with digital photography but felt that there was something missing, much like cooking dinner in a microwave, the cooking was a much missed component. So I found myself drawn to analogue photography. In the space of about two years it has more or less consumed me. Here is a brief introduction to my setup:

    Mamiya RZ67, 50, 90, 180mm lenses
    Mamiya 7ii, 43, 65, 80mm lenses
    Leica M7, Summilux 35mm asph, Summicron 90mm lenses
    Canon AE-1, 50mm lens
    (I still have one digital camera, an M9)

    Durst Laborator 1200, Ilford Multigrade 500h head
    Ilford rc1250 dryer
    fiber dryer
    16X20 archive washer

    Broncolor Impact 41, 21 strobes.

    ProCabin 6X7 Projector for slides

    Epson V750 Scanner for scanning

    I look forward to learning from you and maybe even contributing :-)

    Those who know, shoot film

    Gruezi Wohl! It's coming on. I work in Zug and there is a shop that deals exclusively with analogue products. I get all my papers, chemicals and film from them. I also get all colour and slide film developed there. They are constantly expanding so things must be going well. I live in Basel where another analogue shop just closed, but they never did much to market themselves or introduce new products to the market. I know a few people who still shoot film and I do what I can to keep it alive.

    In October I'll be going to a workshop in Zurich on Collodion Process (wet plate). I'm looking forward to that.

    I'm just glad to see by forums like this that film is alive and well on earth.
