    does anybody here play around with b/w photography? as we only have a b/w darkroom at school that is all im expereinced in, but im looking forward to playing with colour, especially for landscapes, although i do love the way b/w photo's grasp the truth and atmoshpere so brilliantly, especially with red/brown toners.

    I've shot one roll but plan on many more in the future. Since I have the scanner all I really need to get is the chemicals, tank and thermometer. I have a roll of HP5 ready to take out. I'd like to head somewhere industrial.

    wow, dudette. a very concise and poignant statement.

    yeah.

    screw color.
