I became so glad when I recently found this forum. Until now I´ve mostly been eavesdropping to make sure I´ll fit in to this place and now I feel confident enough to introduce myself. I think apug will be a good resource for making progress.
I started with photography about ten years ago. Soon I got into black and white and bought the stuff I needed for my own darkroom. Unfortunately I did not really have the space for it, but I for sure fell in love with the magic in the darkroom. Well I have been trying out a lot of different darkrooms in the cities I lived in, but since a couple of days I have my own darkroom with at least some sort of proper space for everything. It´s great! I been reading up a lot and are trying to reveal the technical aspects of the magic. So I really hope to make some progress!
I work as a journalist which means I photograph quit a lot digital also, but a big part of my heart lies in the exposing of film and the darkroom work.
