Default Hello from Iran

Hello everyone,
recently I started to set up my own darkroom in my warehouse, everything is almost ready and I'm very happy about it but I know its only the beginning and I should learn so many things, As I mentioned in title I live in Iran, and its very hard to find proper materials and resources here for film photography, and it forced me to do every part of my work by my self.

Wish me luck!

thanks for all kind messages,

honestly nothing in the market no proper chemicals or films and other stuff, I cannot buy from the international market here in Iran, I always waiting for a friend who wants to come from another country for some films or other things (for example I cannot find e-6 chemicals for a year and its liquid so they cannot bring it from airport ) . but I am lucky, these years patiently bought many things and now I can run my own darkroom.

Welcome, armang and good luck with a continuing supply of darkroom materials. You may have already thought about this but if not then consider getting friends to buy powder chemicals for you to bring back with them. Powder lasts a very long times if left unopened in packets until needed

Yes I think we forget just how fortunate we are in the UK and other parts of the world. We take what we have for granted and WE complain when what we order takes two days to arrive.
