    Hello & Thank You

    I just wanted to make my first post on APUG a hello and thank you. I have just developed my first roll of black & white film since I was in high school, about 16 years ago, and the posts of the members of this site were a great help in getting back up to speed. I have no idea how well they have turned out because I have no immediate way of scanning or printing them. That is the next project to work out.

    I have only been shooting as a dedicated hobby for just over a year and really regret coming to it so late. Admittedly I started up with photography because digital made it so accessible. It was also a way of encouraging me to travel and get out and about, and that's worked very well so far. Although I will continue to shoot digital I am returning to film because there is too much temptation to be lazy with a DSLR and fix things in post.

    Shooting film is really slowing me down and making me think about the kinds of images I want to make. It is also very satisfying to work with your own hands rather than rely on some maths genius employed by Canon or Adobe.

    So hello and thank you!

    Hello and welcome to APUG from the land up over! (Men At Work are surely groaning in their sleep from that one... although they might be before your time).

    Hi there, just joined myself.

    haha I think I'll adopt the way of typing d***l as if it were invective.

    welcome back from the dark side -- your problem of making prints can be easier to solve than you might imagine -- nose around Craigs list or any local free classified ads and you will find entire darkrooms for sale for small-ish amounts of money. Heck, let it be known generally you are interested, folks will probably call and offer the stuff for free.

    And thrift stores, of course, often have stuff.

    Have fun, you won't regret it.
