New camera (Canon 40D)

Recommended Posts

I have one Minolta and Yashika film slrs. I don't use them anymore but they were awesome. I used to love hunting fir black and white film and taking family portraits. Alas no more of that. :-(

On a side note I love my Sony alpha.

Call me creepy, but developing makes me relate more to the film. It's just another step to the process that finishes your shot:

1) Find shot

2) Find correct angle

3) Orientate yourself and the lighting source

4) Decide what f/stop and SS you want for your finished look

5) take multiple shots

(Ends here for digital mostly)

6) Record f/stop and SS

7) Once you finish the roll of film, wind it

8) take film out of camera, and in a darkroom/ darkbag, put the film in the development container

9) develop negatives (lots of steps in this but thats boring)

10) after negatives dry, check them out! Always a fun step. The first sign of a mess-up is here

11) Take negatives to enlarger

12) Test strips

13) apply filters

14) test strips

15) dark-room photoshop ninja stuff

16) develop pictures

I dunno, those extra steps just make me feel that much more accomplished when i have the print. Also however, you can take a perfectly awesome shot, and ruin it SO many ways. I mean, you can ruin your whole roll of film in seconds. So it can be frustrating, but with most things, the payoff is worth it :wub:

Sorry for writing a book. Been a while since I've talked about stuff like this

Edit: i read this again. I didn't mean to come off as a "know it all". The steps listed there are simply what i did and may not, probably are not, the best way to set up a shot. What i learned is that I didn't want to do photography for a living, so i tried what i was taught, but also formed my own techniques that worked for me.

Nah, some good things were said ... I have never developed my own film .. EVER... Just not practical for most people unless it was for a living... But I'm all about the digital world... lol :peepwall:

it's all good, it's nice to hear about the "history" of photography and then compare it to newer technology.

i don't think i have the patience to develop photo's though hahahaha.
