I've been a lurker here for a while, and now that I'm ready to initiate my darkroom this weekend, thought I'd better join for real. I'm a total b&w newbie, took a six-week course at the local college, and am ready to make as many mistakes as possible. I've been interested in photography for many years, back to my srt-102 days... which is still going strong, thank you. Used to do weddings on Yashica mat124 and -D, which are long gone, unfortunately, but have recently picked up a used hassy 500cm. I've shot about ten rolls of 120 through it, and it seems to work just fine. It's my eye that needs work! Anyway, I've been reading a lot of threads with great interest, and am really looking forward to getting started in my darkroom. Len N.
