    Hello from South Africa

    Hi all.

    My name is Dion; and I'm from Durban, South Africa. I've been involved in photography since I was a kid, my father used to do his own B&W photography and I spent a lot of my formative years helping about in the darkroom. My father lost interest in photography as he got older, and I stopped as well. Until just over a year ago when I got my first DSLR.

    I have enjoyed my new Canon over the last year, but the desire to get back into a darkroom has been quite strong. I managed to get my hands on an old Voigtlander Vito CL, and then purchased a Kiev 4. I also did a quick repair job on my very old Voigtlander Brilliant f/7.7, though I haven't had a chance to run a roll of film through it yet. My girlfriend and I have shot quite a few rolls Kodak gold, and now it is time to start some more serious B&W photography and get a darkroom up and running.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    Not sure when I'll be able to post any images here since I don't have a film scanner and I'm still in the process of repairing my fathers old equipment. I may have to bite the bullet and buy a new/2nd hand enlarger, but we'll see.
