    Hi. This seems like a great place. I like the PHPBB bulletin board format, but then, I would, since I run a health site that uses it for its forums. I started 35mm photography in 1975. I did my own black and white development and printing back then, then sort of abandoned it during the 80's as my kids were growing up. Nobody but me in the family liked black & white, so I pretty much always shot colour for the family-type stuff. I sort of drifted away from more serious photography during that time, but I've revived my interest over the past year, since I had to retire. Ilford XP2 got me back into B&W, along with a film scanner, but I still want to develop and print B&W (especially after I saw what an appalling job labs do these days with B&W). I should soon have everything I need for an apartment bathroom type of setup, and I'm really looking forward to it. So far, I'm sticking with what I liked best back in the 70's: HP5 and FP4, and maybe some Tri-X. I hope it all comes back to me

    I'm strictly 35mm for now, although, I wouldn't mind doing some medium format too. That will have to wait though - No more money

    You're not the only one here who has returned to pursuing Photography seriously after an extended absence.

    Apparently, as the old song goes, [Photography] is lovelier the second time around
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Welcome, Pierre, from the last previous member to post a bio.
    Have you considered browsing E-Bay to get a used TLR? Sometimes they go for really low prices, and the 2 1/4 negatives run rings around 35mm, especially with the newer fine-grain films.

    Welcome!
    To assemble your darkroom, look at Ebay. Lots of inexpensive high quality gear - I know, mine was done this way!
    And get a 6x6 enlarger, even for 35mm.

    Thanks for your welcome and your suggestions everyone. I bought a new Paterson tank already a few months ago, and I just acquired a Beseler enlarger via an ebay transaction. I just need a few more items. The idea of a used Rolleiflex or something like that is a good one, and I will probably do that at some point.
