    Hello from Dresden, Germany!

    Hello everybody! I'm a high school student from Germany and amateur photographer since a couple of years. I was an exchange student in Albuquerque, NM where I learned pretty much everything I know about analog photography. I spent many hours in the darkroom and studio messing around with all the cool stuff that nobody else ever used. (Large format, instant film, cyanotype, gum bichromate, ...) Most of the times I use my Kiev 88 but of course I also have a German Exacta camera ( because those were produced in Dresden )
    As soon as I can clear up some space in our garage to set up a little darkroom I'll try making some (color) carbon prints. At first I deemed this to be impossible to do in Germany since it's illegal here to buy dichromates, but then I found out about the Diazo sensitizer so I'll give that a try.
    I'm also doing a lot of digital stuff, I can't afford only shooting analog.

    Welcome to APUG!

    At 11, I think you may be the youngest here!

    My last sentence was a little misleading, I'm actually not 11 anymore, but that's when I started with digital photography

    Welcome Jonas! My son got started with digital photography (a Kodak point and shoot which he still has) at age 11. He got started in film photography at age 12, and is now 13. He loves seeing slides projected. I understand quite a few people are shooting slide (transparency) film in Germany.
    ME Super

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

    Willkommen!

    Dichromates are not illegal to buy in Germany. But their sale as pure substance to private consumers is prohibited meanwhile. In practice this may turn out the same though.
