I'm a retired broadcaster. I have loved photography sine I was 10. I developed my first roll of film at 11 by see sawing it through the chemicals (a Kodak tri chem pack) with a clothes pin on either end of the film. My darkroom was the family bathroom. It actually worked! I was hooked. I've shot almost every format film and had all the darkroom toys. All of that is gone now (hey life happens). Well, not all of it is gone, I kept a developing tank, two Polaroid 100's and my beloved Canon FTB. I've found that with just the simplest tools. I can still have tons of fun and stay creative.
