Hello. Here I am.

Hi. My name is Jamie and I found the site while Googling some photoshop actions. I've been shooting since I was 17 and was heavily involved with the Photostaff at Virginia Tech when I was there in late 80-early 90s doing mostly black and white processing and printing for the school paper. I took a long break after college and got into shooting with a Nikon D40 in 2007. I got a D90 last year and am very happy and having so much fun. I'm hoping to offer and glean some good tips and tricks on the forums. Thanks for having me.

Welcome! I bet you don't miss that darkroom! I don't...

Re: Hello. Here I am.

Actually, missing the darkroom is complicated. I spent so many hours in it with good friends composing and printing together. You don't get that camaraderie at a terminal. However, none of my shirts have little brown spots on them and my fingers don't stink. Our darkroom was a re-done large women's room under a dining hall. The storage closet was used for film changes and we had a huge water table for the chemicals and a separate large sink for film processing. We had 5 enlargers and a full sized fridge for paper and beer. The ceiling was like 10 feet so it was even a passable studio space.

Then again, being able to shoot several hundred frames without reloading is very nice too.
