Default Hello from Okehampton

Hi All. My name is David and I live in Okehampton on the edge of Dartmoor. After several incarnations of a bathroom darkroom, I have now bought a Nova darkroom tent to use in an (occasionally) spare bedroom. I'm currently getting this set up - experimenting with layout etc - and am looking forward to getting some prints made again. I have used a succession of medium format cameras, and dabbled with large format, but have now settled on 35mm with a Pentax Spotmatic and Canon F-1. I particularly enjoy landscape photography and consider myself very fortunate to be living on the edge of a National Park. I've always appreciated the wealth of information and expertise on this site and am looking forward to participating more actively in it.

Hi David and welcome aboard. Always tricky finding somewhere to park a darkroom!

You picked a good spot to live if you like landscapes. A bunch of us were down your general way a couple of months back (albeit I don't think we ventured north of Wistman's Wood this time).

Have fun!

Hi David and welcome. If it is any help in anticipation of you using the tent I believe that Roger Hicks of the Hicks and Schultz books on photography was able to successfully use this for quite some time before fitting out his own darkroom.
