View Full Version : Hello from Tucson

the other night i was on my computer working with some photos, and when i saw that i had nearly 8500 file of photos that i hardly ever look at, much print i went into my dark room and thought of what i was missing. i have used the room for storage for years, and what a mess. i found my speed graflex, both 4x5 and 2x3, also my calumet. i gave it up when the divorce was final and found out that she had thrown away all my negatives, about 3800. so i started to clean up the cameras and visited the local camera store to buy some film. i stumble across your form and read a few of the articles, and thought there is great information here. i hope to shoot some film tomorrow in tombstone, and see if i remember what to do. i know that i had a lot of fun years ago, many years ago. i have to get some chemicals, but i have all the other darkroom equipment. i want to say thanks in advance as i have picked a lot of information already. continue the great work. thanks rcrull

I think most of us tend to shoot more with digital and find we have less keepers. Large format has a way of slowing us down so we are more committed to each shot. So hopefully more shots that we want to print.

There are several of us on the forum.
