    Actually I have only done that over the last 3 posts I made. So it isnt all I do at all. And in your case, its called trolling because you are so damn insecure that you have to try and make people like you or be fear you. Come to think of it I think it is actually a pity that you are like that. Stop lying and be yourself, people will like you better

    Lie: "i hacked tsr so i can see all anon posters..."
    Want to make people be afraid of negging you:
    1) "Before you lose 6 points, you meant to neg me or just pressed the wrong button?"
    2) "Dont hate (neg) me. I bite (neg back)"

    Y so patronising? Surely its better to learn proper photography through film than to take a poor digital shot then learn to rely on Photoshop for ridiculous colours, over the top HDRs and annoying selective desaturation?
    This isn't what I mean at all ! It is better to learn with film when you pass the initial stage of guessing exposures, but when you start to make money from photography you will learn that a digital file is leagues more valuable than a film negative. I think - maybe - that the word you were looking for is "special" and no doubt a film negative is more special than a digital file, but not more valuable

    Get what I mean?

    Get what I mean?
    For 99% of shots taken by 99% population digital is the sensible solution. I shot film SLRs from 1971 (a Minolta SR3), and digital in parallel from 2004, sold my two Minolta's Dynax 35mm SLRs and lens inventory in 2008. I still have one film camera which shoots 620 film, fixed focal length.

    I have seen similar situations, such as the guy who insisted on doing all his carp fishing with split cane rods and centre pin reels and wearing tweed clothes, he used totally modern stuff up until he broke the British record and then became famous, a retro approach kept him in the headlines and his sponsors happy.

    Advocating film for the majority is like advocating all computer students should learn to write 370, or Z80 assembler, its fun, and was once vital when a computer had 32K of memory or a mainframe 3 megabytes of memory but not really relevant anymore.

    Learning to knap flints and using them is useful as part of a scientific investigation, but I would always go with a steel knife to do anything for real.

    So for anyone out there film is not superior to digital, it is a personal choice of retro style at best. Photoshop is not an issue, just as much could be done in the darkroom, if you were any good. Using film as a justification for using the image straight of the camera, just indicates a lack of the ability and skill (and possibly vision) that used to sort the "men from the boys".

    Two pros (not weekend wedding hacks) I know "shoot in photoshop", i.e. when framing and exposing the image what is in their minds eye is what the final result will be, not what the camera is going to capture.

    A load of pictures
    But which do you like?

    If you had a long exposure length of the 2nd Blackfriars Bridge photograph, it'd look much better.

    Probably a selection at the moment. This is my most recent 'decent' one; I had no long exposure equipment with me so I sat my on my camera bag and used a 10sec timer, and then an 8 second exposure at f/9. I then grabbed the single speedlight I had and ran around lighting up the tree in the foreground with a total of three flashes during the exposure. I absolutely love shooting at night in this way - the level of control over how you light the frame is stunning:
    Townhill Campus, Swansea


    The second is a shot over Swansea bay towards Port Talbot at about half 6 in the morning. Don't ask why I was up at that time. When I got home I went back to bed. This is a merge of three images, all processed from a single RAW file. The exposure wasn't touched, but each of the three had a different white balance to account for the different kinds of lighting throughout the shot, from the sunrise-sky, through to different kinds of street lamps.


    And a shot of my ex done with my 1927 (yes, 80 years old) Thornton Pickard large format camera with a 6x9 back. Fujicolor PRO400 120 film, devved and scanned at uni.


    Enjoy and feel free to comment/crit please Sorry they're a bit big, but it's all about the detail!

    The bigger the better really. I don't like the new TSR format where pictures are made super small for no reason.
