    I am getting back into Analog Photography....

    Hello to all,

    I have two reasons for joining this forum - firstly, after a few years of digital, my interest in traditional photography has been re-kindled - I intend to start up a darkroom again, many years after I last developed and printed my own pictures. My father had a darkroom and when I left home about 30 years ago, my opportunities for photography diminished, and then I had a family - you know the story....but now I am picking up my Pentax Spotmatic where I left off !!

    The second reason is that I inherited a huge amount of MF and 35mm negatives/transparencies and several hundred exhibition prints that were all created by my grandfather Dr S.D.Jouhar between 1930 and 1963. He was a prolific exhibitor in The London Salon (which he was invited to join in 1944) and also the RPS (see www.sdjouhar.com for some examples of his work)

    I have been archiving his work and I have a ready supply of very interesting material that I can work with. My father started to do this about 20 years ago, but he died 9 years ago, before good quality scanners were available at a reasonable price, so he was never able to do much with the BW negs.

    Anyway, I look forward to learning more and contributing to the forums where I can.

    Best Regards to all,
    Kelvin Jouhar

    Welcome... take your time with the archival work. It can really take a lot of time. Just wait till you start making your own prints again. You're going to love it here.

    Cheers,

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Thank you all very much for the kind words of welcome.

    Perhaps I can just ask - which would be the most appropriate forum to post in if I want to get some opinions on the photgraphs on my "retrospective" website ?

    Regards
    Kelvin Jouhar
