    Hello from a confusing name, NJ

    Nothing about my username or the town I live sounds very nice. FoidPoosening, living in Flemington? Blah.

    Well I'll start by saying that I could never pronounce Food Poisoning when I was younger, so it's stuck here on the interwebz. The town? Now that's just an unfortunate name.

    Anyway, call me Dan. I fell into digital photography first when I was 17, purely as a means for taking stock photos of the products I was selling under the paintball company that I started then and still operate now. While that's not the point, what's important is that I recently inherited an old Canon AE1 Progam from my Pop Pop who took it all over the world with him. Earlier this year I went on a semester abroad to Vienna, Austria with my Nikon D7000 and finally got used to manual mode. Learning "manual" digitial photography made me want to go even further and learn analog photography, as I find it fascinating. By the time I got back two weeks ago, I had already read tons of articles on film photography and was set on trying it as a tribute to my Pop Pop. Since then I've shot a roll of film on it and can't wait to see the results once I get it developed, alone with a few rolls of film from a few cameras that I picked up during my time in Vienna. Hehe...

    Be on the lookout for a bunch of questions posted with what will probably have glaringly obvious answers (read: new to film photography) but in the meantime, hello!

    ~Dan

    Hi Dan!

    Great to hear from you and welcome to the site! Good to hear you're getting in, the family connection (with my mother) is also why I started! How are you doing this? Self-dev or sending it off?

    I only started about a year and a half ago, so hopefully I'll have some of the answers to your questions

    Thanks so much! I'm on sending it off for now. I'm lucky enough to have a local imaging lab in my hometown and there has to be something in Boston when I move there in September.

    That being said, I'd love to learn to develop it myself in the long run. Any advice on where to get started with that?

    Obviously an ad hoc name.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Welcome, Dan. Here in Michigan we have Paradise and Hell, so anything in between is acceptable.

    Developing 35mm Black and White is deceptively easy, especially as you are starting out. There is so much latitude in the films and developers that if all you need to do is get a tank, load the films and process according to this and you will get great photos. I developed in my bathroom for the better part of my first year and I think it really completes the experience. The only major expenditure is a negative scanner which can be found for $100 anyway (unless you want to pay the labs to scan them, which is common but expensive). Colour is harder because of the temp consideration, but the point is that when you are just starting out developing is nothing more than setting a timer and inverting. Its only later on (when you are more experienced and confident) that you start to get into more complicated developing like 2 baths and more exotic developers.
