Default Greetings

Hello there , i am new to this forum and to film photography in general although i have been lurking in the world of digital photography for the last twenty odd years. My principle is a very old Olympus OM1-n paired with a 50mm zuiko f1.8 and i am hoping to expand on that soon. I have just completed adapting a 150 year old victorian outbuilding into my darkroom on the farm i live on in the Fens in Cambridgeshire UK . I have just aquired a Durst m670 BW enlarger and am starting to make my own prints and am happy with the early results. many technical questions to follow no doubt , but all i will say at the moment is that i wish i had done this many years sooner .

Welcome to the dark side!

I find the hands-on practicality of working in the darkroom and producing a physical end-product is what I enjoy most.

You can't go far wrong with the Olympus and a few lenses

Ask away if there is anything you want to know.

Have fun!

Welcome to FADU

There are quite a few OM users on here - so you are in good (or bad ) company

Hopefully you find us a friendly lot.

Remember - there are no stupid or trivial questions - we all started somewhere at some point.

Welcome to FADU You have all the main things needed, namely a good camera and what sounds like a superb darkroom

I hope we can help on any matters that arise with film and darkroom work

Welcome!
Fellow Olympus shooter here, who's still quite the novice in the darkroom as well.
The OM-1(n) and 50mm f/1.8 is a great combo which I also enjoy a lot!
