    *waving frantically* Hello!!!!

    I don't know quite what to say but what I do I say enthusiastically!
    In case you couldn't tell from my screen name, my name is Jackie! I hail from the beautiful state of Maine and I'm twenty three and recently decided to get back into my love affair with photography.
    Other than a childhood obsession with polaroid, I'm relatively new to film, having just developed my first two rolls and I am hooked! I vaguely remember yelling at everybody in my apt. that there were pictures on my film!!!
    After my first darkroom class was cancelled due to low enrollment, I decided to teach myself and so far I don't think I'm doing half bad(the fixer comes BEFORE the developer, right?) I'm hoping to expand to printing within the next month or two once the funds are available, and impatiently waiting for the ability to grow and make mistakes in the darkroom! In the meantime, I've been reading and watching and listening to anything that anybody slighty film inclined has expressed. I'm hoping to learn a whole lot between my own experiances and from all the excellent information I find here!

    Hi!

    Having waved frantically so many times i know the feeling.: ) So pleased to hear from Maine. You live in a beautiful state and I hope to see your photographs soon.
    I am getting back into the darkroom after a five year-or is it longer- lapse.
    Katrina knocked the heck out of my house and that is the excuse i am using today.
    Have had my own darkroom in closets,bathrooms and now have one in an old walk in meat freezer in a back yard building. It is ventilated well with an odd assortment of fans and filters. Now, if i only had running water...
    Still get a thrill when I see a negative for the first time and an image forming from a print in the developer. Magic!

    A big welcome to Jackie and Mary Ann!!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Welcome to both of you, from the south-west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

    To be fair though, Mary Ann, you should start your own thread, because we would like to hear from you as well.

    Hope you enjoy it here.

    Welcome Jackie and Mary Ann!

    Always appreciate perspectives from East and South since I am hopelessly stuck in the West
