I was introduced to APUG by Cheryl Jacobs. I have been lurking for a while as I cannot post as currently I am digital (Canon 300D). I am a student of the NYIP and currently working on unit 4. However, I have developed a love for Black and White and have realised I cannot reach the standard I want to achieve digitally and want to "progress" on to film. I realise that to shoot black and white film and have it process and printed commercially is a waste of time and money and I guess I just need a little persuasion to take the plunge and buy a darkroom.
My local Photography shop has a second hand darkroom with a Meopta Optemus? enlarger for sale for £100.00.
Can anyone convince me?
Is there anyone local to me in Lancashire/Greater Manchester who can show me the ropes and get me started?
