    Hi from where ever am at at the moment

    Hi Everyone. It's great to find a forum for people we love photography both film and digital. I've started up again with my photography when I started traveling a few years ago. I have three cameras a Nikon FE for film, Nikon D7000 and my Lumix for point and shoot. Even though I have a DSLR I still can't get used to it and prefer to use my film SLR. Hard part about shooting film is finding places that will develop it or finding a darkroom. I love shooting b&w.

    Cheers!

    Never a problem. I have a sophisticated darkroom right here in my house, aka bathroom.... All it takes is a little bit of space to process film. Printing is a bit different.... Welcome to APUG.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Doesn't take much at all to develop b&w film. Then a decent scanner to scan the negs is all one needs.

    True I would do that if I was home but am traveling around to different countries for the year.

    I do have a good scanner with me though am still trying to figure out how to get the best results from it. Also going into the darkroom is like mediation for me.

    I assume you're shooting 35mm, right? If so you need chemistry, a processing tank and reel, a bottle opener (for opening the film canister), and a changing bag to open the film and load it on the reel in, and possibly a water bath to control temperatures (definitely needed for color). Oh and a thermometer. No darkroom required for processing film as you're handling the unprocessed film inside the changing bag.

    For 120/220 film, omit the bottle opener as it is not needed.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    great to see you here !

    film in a changing bag is easy to load on reels ..
    you can mcgyver develop with stuff you find
    at a grocery store ( coffee, vit c and washing soda )
    you just need to mule some old fashioned hypo
    and mix it as you go ...

    good luck !
