Not sure if that is perhaps an advantage @Paterson? :innocent: No Nosey Neighbours or Big Brother, eh? :wink:

Good work @mh & @EvilBastard, but watch your cameras looking directly into that sun thingy, eh? :) Contre-jour is fab, but risky to our equipment ... :innocent:

On the subject of photography @obviousman, your perseverence with film intrigues me. This makes a lot of sense, but a good range is getting harder to find and afford for sure. Processing seems to be disappearing fast too - perhaps it will only be found in art schools and professional labs soon? Pati...

:eek: & :innocent: With reference to most of the above:~ Gave you something to talk about though, eh? ... I've heard (a lot) worse of course. "Old Hippy" - maybe, but "racist undercurrents" - no. I think you misunderstood, but hey @JB, I was enjoying your art school tales, which I'd describe as nost...

I appreciate all you say @Blast , I really do, and I’m glad we can discuss this without it descending into insults – quite refreshing … I was ‘taught’ a load of guff at art school & uni that I have since largely ignored. I do think (for myself), and think they are a bunch of sycophantic, s...

Far better than the hand IMO! Read your post with much interest. Can we keep this up in 'Photography Corner'? - If it doesn't annoy James too much? (I was always told not to be bitter, but I slip sometimes ...) Also, with reference to above, I take it you too use a tripod when you can? 'tis cumbers...

Thanks for all of that @Obviousman ! :notworthy: You and Mr Blast have just exposed me for the cheat I am! :urff: However, digital has many uses though, and is also fun of course! Let's meet up one day with our plate cameras when we have the time and our own processing lab, eh? :wink: Ciao 4 now.

I hope you enjoy it, and then we can sit around the campfire together with our guitars and tambourines, singing an acoustic version of Gimme Shelter!

Hi Folks! No cheating in Photoshop indeed, I stopped doing that since I switched to film. Not even cropping pictures! Think along with only film it's all just a matter of silly purism :lol: But to me, it's just so much more fun to get things right from the start rather than trying to make things loo...

you really do knit your own museli, don't you? Pardon my daftness, but what exactly does that mean? You are not at all daft Sinnie! - It is a not so subtle slag of Hippies - e.g. making your own Muesli - Something that Hippies supposedly eat a lot of, although I never do! - Although I'm not sure if...
