What's Old Is New Again

Hello forumers,

The old: A 20+ year photography hobby using a K1000 and a Hasselblad. Work in the darkroom was process heaven. Sadly, darkroom access ended and the hobby faded.

The new: A rekindled interest in making photographs and a dedication to learning all things digital. The purchase of a K70 is starting me on an amazing journey of education and creativity.

Iíve been reading A LOT on this site and will be asking questions as needed. I look forward to sharing my adventure with other like-minded souls.

Cheers,

peggy

Welcome to the forum. The digital darkroom can be fun - and it's cheap to try variations on an image.

Thank you for the welcomes. Merry Christmas to you, C_Jones. I'm looking forward to playing in the digital darkroom, SpecialK, though I will miss the familiar smells of chemistry.

Welcome to the forum, now the darkroom has become a room in the light.

Thank you, Kerrowdown. Yes, processing photographs by the light of day is part of the adventure.

Welcome to the forum. There are a few of us working with both mediums, I for one just can’t put the old film to rest.

Welcome from one who gets more enjoyment from the darkroom than the digital version, not that I don't use both.

Hello twilhelm and redrockcoulee and thank you for the welcomes. If access to a darkroom becomes available again I'll be happily ensconced in the warm glow of safe lights.

Thank you, kjphilippona and smf. I look forward to posting photos and learning from others as my digital adventure continues. You’ll no doubt find me in the K70 and photo sharing threads from here on out.

Happy New Year to all.

Welcome from a neighbor Minnesotan! I'm also rediscovering the joys of film photography also!
