Default Hello from the Ruhr!

Hi all,

my name is Martin and I am located in the so called "Ruhrgebiet" in Germany.

In 2015 I made my first steps into analogue photography by visiting a public darkroom in my city. Just to know "how to develop one of these b6w films... . Well, nearly seven years and some serious GAS attacks later I built my own small darkroom (the public one unfortunately closed) and happily shoot film from 35 to 5x7.

Iīm happy I found FADU some time ago, itīs a great source of information. And my strong guess is that I know some of you folks already from Photrio.

Regards, Matti

Welcome aboard Matti.

You are teasing us with that invitingly slightly open door there. What excitement lies beyond...

Have fun, Bob.

Welcome Matti. I have to say you have made a lot of progress in analogue photography in 7 years. More than I have made in about 16 years

Mike

Hallo Martin & welcome to the friendly FADU forum!
Lived for 3 years in Dortmund once and then things went south and that was good, living now in the sunniest region in Germany. :-)
Enjoy! Especially with our great print exchange.
Frank
