(though I think only digitals, I should try slide + polarizer
I love watching clouds!
Your slide + polarizer are words you speak that I have no idea what you mean! Photos is only a hobby for me!
As it is just a hobby for me, no worries
Slide = dias, polariser makes you can make skies look like this

Aye, of course take as much time as possible with your shots and ignore distractions. Setting ISO to 400, 800, 1600 or further can and does give good results for sure, and often the grain is a welcome addition. I suppose I often use a tripod â€˜cos Iâ€™m really also recording what I see, as opposed to trying to be artistic (lazy too though, hrumpf) â€¦ I liked those flowers, and your composition â€“ were they wild roses? Can we be allowed to know what settings you used and which film? Yeah, Macro is another universe entirely, but donâ€™t tempt me?! (goes rushing off into the digital archive â€¦)
No need to agree, just my personal point of view, which has grown out of not being able to afford one
Remember I don't set ISO but need to pick the right film on beforehand
When shooting B&W grain is and can be very nice, don't disagree there, but I think when it's colour pictures you're going for, higher ISO means less remarkable colours. That being something I think I've noticed with the different films I've used, even though their number has been relatively limited.
Not a clue what the flowers are TBH, my best guess was Japanese cherry blossom? It was in Paris, near Champs Elysee, that's what I know. Film is Kodak Elitechrome 200 (haven't bumped into a roll of Ektachrome so far yet
), lens was a Minolta 35-105 AFLens on a Minolta 7000, B+W/Schneider Kreuznach Circular polariser filter and settings would've been 1/125 f/22 (best guess though, not entirely sure of that).
For now I won't comment the rest as I'm rather enjoying this technobabble, meaningless as it probably is to all others
