Hello from Arizona

Rich Reeder here. I've been using a camera since I was a kid, mainly my Dad' Argus C3, but I was able to get a K-1000 recently with some extra lenses, & it's really the Crown Jewel of the collection. I use home rolled B/W (Plus-X is great) & it's developed in D-76, mainly because that's what I used in the 60's. Neg's are scanned with an Epson V500, & I've been pleased with the results. Still like doing darkroom work, though. Except that here in Arizona during the summer, that room gets hot. I'm looking forward to lurking awhile. I get the impression that you all really know what you're doing. That's great.

Welcome aboard! My C3's (The Bricks!) and K1000 stare down at me balefully from their shelves but they won't see much action till I rebuild a darkroom here in my Sierra Nevada aerie. They'll see even less action when I relocate to my historic adobe in Bisbee AZ for the winter. Much less snow there. Nice thing about digital darkrooms: not cramped, not smelly, not dark, except as a matter of personal (dis)taste. Growing up in Dad's little darkroom was fun, but PP on a laptop is slightly less antisocial.

But I digress. Welcome, and cheers!
