    Hello from Atlanta, GA

    Just joined to look at & share photographs. Also interested in b&w film development. Think I bought everything I need last week but I haven't actually tried it yet. Still practicing putting the film on the reel.

    Started out with a little digital 2mp camera. Then I got a 5mp camera with manual controls. That was still very lacking though so I bought a Nikon D100. After two years of that I sold it for a 20D. Upon getting bored with that, I acquired a Hasselblad 500cm and 80mm f/2.8 from my father a few months back. Just picked up an Epson 4990 scanner so now I finally have photos online.

    The waist level viewfinder is fun to use and the square format is interest. Mostly I just love being able to do real black & white.

    Looking forward to learning from everyone here.

    Welcome Jason, both to APUG and to b&w work. We're all here to help each other and to keep film photography and supplies alive. Nice move on the Hassey btw. Looking forward to you future posts.

    Welcome to the family! PM me if you need help with the darkroom work. I live in East Cobb right next to Fulton County, pretty close to you.

    Hi Jason! Great to have you with us... You are going to love it here!

    I'm just across the line in Alabama, and I hope one of these days to meet you in person.

    Maybe we can wangle him and a few others out to shoot at the Sloss Furnaces soon. I'll check and see how soon I can get out, the post a note in the Regional Forums.

    Thanks everyone. I'd love to get together and shoot sometime.

    Sloss Furnaces look very interesting for some b&w if they are fine with people coming in with cameras.

    Most new b&w workers begin by fiddling with the 35 mm reels, and sticking together several frames the first few tries. But you have to go and start with 120, and loading them damn things is a real challenge. Best of luck on your journey, one that can yield many years of wonder and pleasure. There are plenty of us here who will attest to our love of this addiction - ERRrr - hobby. Welcome!

    They are quite happy to let you shoot there, I learned of the place from the local camera clubs having outings there. Never had the chance to go with them though I've seen what they brought back. I'm planning on bringing my 8x10 and 4x5 cameras there. Might even lug the Bronicas along If my wife wants to shoot them.

    Good Evening, Jason,

    Have to disagree with Robert's comment above about 120 film loading. In my opinion (following many hundreds of rolls), loading 120 film onto a stainless steel reel is one of the easiest things one can do in darkroom work. Just be sure to get reels which puncture the film to anchor it at the center of the reel; avoid those with a spring-type device.

    Welcome to APUG from Sydney, Australia. (Night shift starting ...)

    How nice to start film photography with a 'blad... You must have some good karma stored up from somewhere
