Hi Everyone
Hi everyone. I've just come across this site, and have to say it's great to find some like minded people at last. My full time career was as a hand printer and, although the introduction of digital has forced me into retirement, I still continue to photograph and print all my own stuff. I've got my own permanent darkroom, and though I mainly shoot in medium format black and white, I do still print my own colour. I'm looking forward to picking up lots of new info on the art of photography and printing - you're never too old to learn - and if I can pass ony tips then all the better.

Welcome Fred, glad you found us.
I'm not too old to learn either, so I will appreciate any hints you can throw my way.

Hi and welcome to FADU

Welcome aboard Fred. I'm sure with your experience there is a lot more you can teach than learn but I hope you can do both ;).

Have fun, Bob.

Hello Fred, good to have you here. Indeed one is never too old to learn as I'm finding out almost on a daily basis.

Digital forced you into retirement, yet another reason for me to hate the infection of D :mad: Forced retirement can be a blessing of course which I sincerely hope it is in your case. :)

Hello Fred, welcome to FADU and welcome to retirement as well. Maybe you will be now able to make all those prints you promised yourself you would do one day :-) I will look forward to your contributions as I am still learning as well :-)

Hi Fred. A double welcome from me as colour darkroom printers are good to find and I have tried C41 and RA4 in the past but have gone very rusty in these areas.

Thanks everyone for your great welcome messages. I will be posting some pics up soon. I just have to sort through my thousands of negs and scan a few on.
