    Hello from the Deep South

    After lurking for a while I thought I would sign up and introduce myself. First, 'Thank You,' to all the folks who share their knowledge on this site. I am stunned at the cornucopia of information here.

    I am getting back into photography after giving it up when everything went digital. I used to do a lot of B/W work starting in junior high - in the dark ages. Back then I did some freelance photojournalism and just basically made up reasons to shoot, develop, and print. Recently my daughter expressed interest in photography, but there was no way we could get her into digital, and frankly I just don't like it and neither does she. I had sold my gear years ago, so I found her a Nikon FG and a couple of lenses. In the bargain the seller threw in a ragged out looking F3HP body and lens for free so that I could join in the fun. It looks like it has been through a war, but it works flawlessly. Holding that brought back a flood of memories. It could have been mine.

    So, now we are shooting. She wants to learn to develop film, and someday we will need to rig up a bathroom/darkroom. Fun stuff.

    My knowledge is old. So, I may ask some questions that are anachronistic!

    Well howdy-doo. At least you're passing it along to the next generation. That's awesome. Welcome to APUG.
    Thank you.

    Welcome to APUG, where are you located you can put that in your bio. I am located just outside of Memphis and if you are close enough I have a DR that when finished will be open to others.

    You just described my situation. My daughter wanted to get into photography so I bought several cameras and lenses for $50 from a buddy who owns a pawn shop so that I could teach her. Now all she wants to do is digi.

    You might consider becoming a subscriber so that you can post your daughters and your work in the gallery.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    A warm welcome from Finland. My daughter is semi-interested in photography and I hope to lure her in to the DR some day.

    Welcome to APUG and all the very best to you both!

    I'm wondering, too, where you are from. I'm in NC. Welcome!
