Hello from the southwest of England
I am from Bristol UK,
I don't know much about film photography, it's been all digital really, Until I came across some old Black And white family portraits that my mother has, also there were many randomly taken shots of landscapes, buildings and people going about their business around the Bristol Area, I think they are from the late 40s - early 70s.
Studying these pictures made me think they look all as good if not better than what was coming from the EPL1 digital I had , there was something more interesting, I couldn't quite put my finger on it, so I decided to start studying black and white photography, Black and white just have something I like.
So here I am now , in the process of creating a darkroom in the small workshop on the side of the house
Out of interests , can I ask are the C7700 pro Color enlargers of good enough quality, that's the one I have.

Glad to hear that you've seen the light, or more correctly "seen the dark"!
When did they move Bristol to the southwest? It's either the Gateway to the North or the Gateway to London, depending which way you're going!

Welcome to APUG! Can't help you with your questions about the enlarger, but I'm sure it'll help you get started in the darkroom!

Welcome to APUG! Also I am not familiar with your enlarger but I'm sure you will get an answer. A lot of knowledgeable people here.

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
As for the C770 question - a quick search came up with this: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum41/51570-lpl-c7700.html which might be of help.
Welcome, you are in a good part of the country to go out taking photos
Hello and a warm welcome to APUG! The more you get into film the more you like it.
I absolutely loved Bristol. My launching point for a tour of England. Welcome to APUG!
Thanks everyone for the welcome
