    Greetings from Santee, California

    I joined today. I've looked a several forums but this forum is specific to film. That is so rare today. Everyone wants to go digital.

    Santee is about 20 miles east of San Diego. It is a great little community. I retired two years ago just two weeks after I turned 55. I wanted to pursue other interests while I was still young enough to enjoy. There never seems to be enough time when you have to work full time. I am truly enjoying to time I spend now.

    I am taking Photography at the local Community college. I have always enjoyed Black and White photography. I wanted to learn how to develop and print my own pictures. There is such a sense of accomplishment when you walk out of the darkroom with a picture that you created with only the tools available in the darkroom.

    My final porfolio for Photo II was a series on Natural Forms. It was done in my home studio. I enjoy studio work. I am having a little trouble uploading my pictures. When that issue is resolved, I will upload my portfolio.

    Looking forward to exchanging ideas with all of you.

    Welcome from a former Californian and current New Englander. Enjoy your retirement... especially if it involves lots of b/w darkroom printing!!

    Welcome to APUG. I spend most of my year in San Diego, though downtown. Just out of curiosity, are you attending Grossmont College? Who is teaching?

    Ciao!

    Yes, I am attending Grossmont College. Paul Turounet is the instructor for the classes I have taken. He is a great instructor. The photography program at Grossmont has expanded and is great.

    Welcome from the other end of California!!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
