    Enough with the lurking, on to the posing.

    Hi all.

    A little backgound on me:
    Name: Jason
    Age: 30
    Location: Milwaukee, WI
    Day job: VoIP consultant.
    Equip: Dad's Canon AE-1. (Needs a CLA, any recomendations?)


    I have been on APUG here for about a month lurking around. I think it is high time I post something.

    I have decided to get back into doing some photography and darkroom work. I have put it on hold for while due to kids, money, house, the usual and not so usual suspects. I had my first exposure to making prints in HS yearbook. I really enjoyed it but, did not have the equip to continue.

    5 years ago I set up a makeshift darkroom in a place we were renting. I was able to printing, but with the lack of funds and a cobbled together enlarger, it was not much fun. Ok, it was not fun at all.

    Now, we are selling the starter house. (I declined to build a darkroom because I know we would not be living here terribly long.) In whatever new house we get, SWMBO has allowed for me to set up darkroom. This pleases me to no end. I am certain that the kids (currently 2 and 4) will be interested in making prints as well. It should be fun.

    Odds are, finishing the basement, if not already done, at the same time will be a pre-requisite, but I can handle that. As will be procuring an enlarger and other misc items. eBay, here I come. I'd like to shoot some 6x6 as well, maybe try out a large format. If the kids develop and interest in all this, so much the better. (Anyone have the formula for that one? :P)



    Sorry for the book.


    Cheers,

    Jason

    Posing? I was looking forward to a few revealing self-portraits!? Send 'em in mate. Anyway, keep posting and good luck with the darkroom. I just finished an extension into my garage with a big new sink. Happy days again. Welcome.

    Welcome, Jason. Have fun building the darkroom. There's a huge thread... Darkroom Portraits you might find very useful with ideas. And don't forget... you sink CANNOT be too big!! Good luck... my kids have become great little tray rockers, and photogram makers!
