    This is always my mindset for when I enter competitions. I'm like, I don't need that, but I could use the money

    How much am I limiting myself by sticking with a camera that uses film?

    FINALLY finished that roll of Ektar that's been sitting in my MX since December. Can finally go back to shooting cheap 400 film, what a relief.

    Sports photographers, studio photographers, event photographers and many others. That's who.

    Edited:

    Is this sort of foreground-background bokeh crossover stuff normal? I love the effect but I'm curious to know if it occurs in all lenses or just that one.

    And ~photoshop editing~ because most places that do film-to-digital image are total shit

    It's not a problem tho, hell, in my experience shooting film comes out looking nicer out of the camera than shooting digital.

    Edited:

    Been reading up on lenses, apparently my d3100 kit lens got great reviews

    But oh god the 50mm f/1.8D AF is so fucking sharp hnnnnnghhhh too bad this camera has no AF motor and I'd have to focus manually if I ever got a hold of one.

    So with practice I could do all the fancy techniques that a digital camera could do with a nice film camera?

    I can conclude by you saying this that self scanning photos will result in awful quality?

    I only shoot film

    also, he's saying that self-scanning will almost always give you better quality than you're average budget photolab, and the professional ones will make you pay out of the ass to get good quality.

    By self scanning I mean using a large printer/fax/scan machine, and not some specialty equipment.
    It would still be better?

    Do you(H4Z3Y) self scan?

    if you use one of those multifunctions then you're going to be scanning the prints that they give you, which have already been scanned, so you gain not much there. You really need to be scanning your own negatives.

    I do scan stuff myself (I'd never have it any other way), and I use an Epson V500, and so do a bunch of the other guys on here

    I'm about to head off to have three rolls of film printed, hopefully some time next month my friend in photography who's been telling me that he'll teach me how to develop film myself will have time, and be able to show me how to scan negatives.

    I'm pretty sure the place I'm going to won't provide digital scans. I guess I'll find out in a few.

    Turns out they do do scans, but the price is a bit silly(at least in my mind). I'll only be getting scans of the three and non printed.

    ---
    Bad news, either my camera is busted or CVS does horrible work. All three rolls of film are "very faint images". I'm going to go pick them up to discover what's wrong. This makes me very sad, as the majority of the photos were very important(not just practice or things I could take pictures of again).

    The negatives are all violet, and I can't see anything that resembles an image on any of them. One one of them some sort of sticky material forms crude rectangles(I imagine where the photos would be, and that sticky material is one of the chemicals bonding to the picture). Any idea what's up? The film is a little old, but it was always stored in the bag indoors.

    Well fuck, I guess the film just went bad.

    I enjoyed them, the plot appeals to both genders and has a gripping story.

    I finished reading it 2 days ago, read it in 4 days. Quite an engrossing story. I read it in 5 sittings. I read 300 pages in the last sitting It's a book you can't put down, and I loved the story. It does appeal more to the female audience towards the end, but it's manageable.

    I've only read the first book.

    A classic doesn't have to be old either.

    The Great Gatsby.

    Anyway, I went back to the same CVS, talked to an employee then the manager, and they replaced my three rolls of film they should have known their equipment can't handle. Two rolls tri-x 400, one BW400cn.

    First Hunger Games book was good. Second isn't nearly as good. Third wasn't very good(apparently). Third is the one I haven't read yet.

    If you were excited when you finally finished your first roll of film developed, you'll know what state I'm in now. Within the hour I should have them scanned and up(finally something to share). Turns out on this roll I did take some picture of my 2nd reenactment. I'm far from taking magical shots that you guys seem to spit out with ease.

    So today I passed by this big office building that's been under construction for some time now a few miles from my house to discover they put out a sign out front that says something along the lines of "Future Headquarters of Canon USA". So now I'm going to have Canon's US headquarters a few miles from my house. The coordinates for the site are 40.779095,-73.428905. The funny thing is it's being built a block away from a small Nikon office.

    Is the nikon place an official Nikon building or some service/repairs center?

    No US headquarters will ever be as cool as the Nintendo buildings, I've heard from a friend who lived nearby that they had boxes upon boxes of battery covers for every kind and color of gameboy, and tons of other cool shit.

    It's a Nikon repair center as well as a small branch of Nikon's offices.

    No one is judging his photographic ability. Sure it's lacking but that's really damn cool subject.
