When I first started this journal, I did a fair amount of searching for blogs and photoblogs that were involved with wet-darkroom photography, using searches on google amd photoblogs.org for matches to things like darkroom or film rangefinder. But while there were lots of matches for search terms, as often as not the first post on the found blog would said something like "I've sold off my film-based rangerfinders and darkroom equipment to pay for a D100 so I can post blog pictures every single day..."
So there were very few analog sites (and mostly of the nostalgic variety), though with some high-profile exceptions like Todd Gross's Quarlo. In the past couple of years they've multiplied, though still not in great numbers. Here are a few found this week, owned by APUG members (what's wrong with this picture?), a list based on this thread:
- Bmac aka Brian McGuiness
- Leon aka Leon Taylor
These are separate from the APUG-specific Member Journals, which tend to be owned by some of the more conservative, photoshop-averse members.
