    Coming back to my roots

    I have been an ex student of phography studies college in southbank (melbourne), however that was years ago. I kind of left photography behind even though I did get some published work.

    Anyway, Im coming back. After recovering from shell shock from where digifail has gone (ok, its far better now... in fact usable!), Im going to do all of the above. More to the point get myself back into a darkroom and using my beloved film again.

    I shoot 35mm and 6x7. I might even look at 5x4 in the future somewhere.

    Thank you. I will enjoy it, and or am actually.

    Need to find a darkroom now. - I'll join our local camera club I think, plus I'll likely learn more there too. Everyone can always learn a thing of two.

    It's lovely to have another local girl here Welcome, Danielle!
    My darkroom is my 2metre by 1metre laundry... it's do-able... and no travel time to get there! I hope you find somewhere to get back into printing soon.

    I'd love to have my own darkroom. I ALWAYS wanted my own for printing. But rental properties and no room says a huge no to that idea.

    However Im quite interested in like minded people around melb. Im going to have to find out if Melb camera club has a darkroom to suit my application, Im sure they do. If they have equipment to do at least medium format up to at least 20x24, Im sold. I can do film processing at my home, that's not a drama. I just need to re-buy the crap to do it with. Vanbars has it all.

    Yes, I've got the rental restriction as well but I have the fortune (? ) of living on my own so I'm not bothering anyone when I take over the laundry. Décor by GladBag with a whiff of Eau de Kodak Rapid Fix Then again, I'm only doing 35mm up to 8x10 so the trays just fit across the washing machine. 6x7 format and larger prints might present a bit more of a challenge!
    There are some innovative ideas in this thread: Bathroom and other temporary makeshift darkrooms.
    Also, there are a few people amongst the Australian Forums who are part of the Melbourne Camera Club and they would probably know what formats they're able to accommodate. The local lads and lasses can be found here: Australian Forum.
    Hope this helps.
    Molli
