Default Hello from Southend

Hi,my name is Simon, I'm a 40 year old watchmaker living in Southend on Sea with my wife and 12 year old daughter. I had a consuming interest in photography as a teenager and young adult, which went when digital came in. Fast forward 20 years and I have got back on to photography thanks to my daughter, who began showing an interest last year. I discovered that film is still easily usable as a medium, and now I'm back in to photography again! I have a very basic darkroom which I am lucky enough to have set up in the loft, but time is proving to be a barrier! I'm looking forward to making my own prints again, something I haven't done for twenty years. I usually use 35mm, as it feels most natural to me, but I have used medium format in the past, and am set up for medium format negatives in the darkroom. I have a number of cameras, and enjoy them all! I am on Instagram and some of my photography can be viewed on there, it's @freese.photo if you're interested. I'm excited to read about the events on this forum and hope to be able to get involved, as it will hopefully give me direction, it's easy for the months to pass without any purpose to my hobby. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to getting involved.

Welcome back to the dark side Simon!

Ah, time... Yes, I remember that - seems I used to have oodles of the stuff. I hope to get some more eventually

Have fun!
