    It's about time I said Hello!

    Hello all,
    I really can't remember how or when I first happened upon APUG but I officially became a member in December 2010. This is my first post!! I'm excited!! I have found APUG to be a valuable resource and I read it daily. Thank you all for sharing your experience and expertise. I even read the archives thoroughly before starting RA4 printing at home......... still haven't made up my mind about the new Fuji Crystal Archive II.

    I am a high school art teacher with an MFA in Studio Art, primarily sculpture. I started teaching photography in 2002 which is what led me "back" to photography. I teach traditional darkroom and film processing and feel a strong responsibility to introduce the younger generation to what originally hooked me as a high school sophomore. Of course I teach the d-stuff too, wouldn't be a responsible photographic educator if I didn't.

    I've been shooting primarily with a Mamiya 645 ProTL for about the last 5 years. I'm still getting used to my TLR, a Mamiya C330. I've loved Holga before they were hip and I absolutely could not live without my Polaroid Land 100! (Although I miss the 669 pack film terribly.) I have a bit of a camera addiction, I must confess.

    Well thank you so much for being here, just wanted to introduce myself.

    Hi Donna ,

    Welcome to APUG.

    Do you advise to your students to read , search at APUG ? They could race with you at class. If you can , try to show them carbon , platin , gum prints and their lives would change. So , if you post a thread to collect said prints with donations , I am sure many would help you.

    Best ,

    Hello and welcome to APUG! It was also in high school that I learned about photography 25+ years ago and I still remember seeing my first picture developing in the tray. I learned a lot from my teacher about all the aspects of photography and it has stayed with me since. You do have a strong responsibility to the next generation and who knows who you will inspire in your students.
