A new acquaintance of mine in Scotland would like your input to his below questions. He gave me pernission to post below.
I told him there were, as we spoke, " ... 100 old photography farts like us sitting at their computers just waiting to add their two cents." Younger farts, too!
A la our recent discussions on the importance of welcoming new folks, I think being an RAF photographer is pretty cool!
I am not yet active enough to be a LF Photography Forum contributor but
have been following the discussions for some months.
I am based in Scotland and trained as an RAF photographer 40 yrs ago
using 5x4 cameras. Went on to study dye-transfer colour printing in
London for 2 yrs then gave up photography altogether.
Now I'm back at it, writing for a magazine, taking pictures and dusting
off all four of my old film cameras! This time around I'm interested in
contact printing from digital negatives using (perhaps) Kodak T Max &
Efke 100 as a starting point developed in Sandy King's Pyrocat-HD
formula. I would love to have a fully equipped darkroom but my volumes
would never justify all the resources/equipement I'd need to invest in.
Comments, ideas, suggestions much appreciated and thanks in advance!
