So many of us shared your first times with us for this week's #ilfordphoto #fridayfavourites #myfirsttime theme. We saw first film shots, first darkroom prints, first home developments and first time using paper negatives. It was tough to choose our favourites but we managed eventually!

@kenco1e @ILFORDPhoto Last weekend was my first time trying 4x5 photography. I then contact printed the negative using the most basic setup in a dark cupboard. I am now hooked and keen to do more darkroom work. #ilfordphoto #myfirsttime #fridayfavourites #ilfordfp4 #intrepidcamera
