Default Hello from London

Hi all,

Looking forward to getting stuck into this forum. I mainly shoot 35mm and seldom use my medium format cameras other than for portraits - my Mamiya rz67ii rarely makes it off the tripod!
Hoping to learn more on developing at home before eventually putting a darkroom together for enlargements and such.
I shoot 35mm with a Nikon f3 on any Ilford I can my hands on and occasionally shoot Kodak TMAX. If I ever go colour, it's Kodak portra.
Still learning lots about film as I go - I've been shooting digital for 12 years. I got into film after seeing my first roll out of my dad's Nikon f301 (basically a baby f3 that had a built in auto wind on) and just fell in love with its quality and classic grain.

Happy snapping!

Cheers,
Mat.

Nice set of cameras, Mat. There are those who rate the F3 on a par with either the F100 or F5 and who is to say they are wrong

Incidentally in preparation for a darkroom and printing you can try your hand at B&W negative processing. All it takes in winter is the evening( darkness outside) and a small dark cupboard into which you can fit plus a film tank for loading. The rest is done in normal light in, say, the kitchen. Alternatively get a changing bag and it can be done while watching the tele

It's good fun unrolling a completed film's worth of negatives off the reel at the end

Mike
