My Nikon F

Black And White Photography, Ingrid, Photography


It is a big big step for me ! And my dream is coming true…I have a black room (darkroom) in my house !   It is not a very good material but it is enough to make my heart beat stronger. My Camera is a Nikon F of 1959.  I am very very happy and proud to show you my first picture !

  1. As one who had never been in a lightroom, or tried to develop her own work, I am so impressed. And inspired!
    Your joy and enthusiasm come through, and I’m very happy that you are achieving your dream.
    The image is wonderful, too

  2. Fantastic photo from your own meticulous work. There’s nothing like working in the darkroom and on your negatives to give you a feeling of satisfaction after you complete the whole process. I teach for Tiger fee in high school and we use a dark room as well. It takes a lot longer but the results are more satisfying. Have a great day.

  3. And a beautiful first image it is Ingrid 😊 Years ago I owned a Nikon F and I loved it. It did not have the Photomic finder with the meter built in. I had to use a hand held Gossen Luna Pro light meter for proper exposure. It never gave me a single problem and it’s probably still clicking away to this day . Wonderful work and best of luck with your new darkroom.

      1. The prism is removable on the Nikon F so you can change focusing screens. It also contains the meter if you have a Photomic. Sometimes the meter needs recalibrating but this can be expensive so the best solution is to use a handheld meter if you have one.
