Alan Brown: Pentax ME Super was a camera I could never afford (at the time of release)
However I picked on up recently in a pawn shop for £10 with a 50mm f2 lens. played with it for a short time, replaced the light seals and sold it on eBay for £65.

Well I got that urge out of me.. and BTW Film processing is NOT cheap.. even with process and CD only.

Do it yourself, it's easy enough. Doesn't need a darkroom, just a bag and a tank. Costs about 60p per film. Scan with a digital camera if no scanner available.

On article Compositional Rules (120 comments in total)

jkjond: Proscriptive composition? Is that the real deal?

All too many articles about composition fall back on the same old principles, crazily referred to as rules. It genuinely saddens me. Composition is a creative thinking process, not a database driven procedure straight jacketing subjects to fit a mould. People end up believing this stuff - not only using it to control their own shots, but applying it to their enjoyment of other images.

Forget the articles - concentrate on your subject and its environment and enjoy a little creativity and freedom.

"What are you going to do today Brian?"
"I'm going to take a creative photograph by placing my subject on the thirds intersection"

I can't wait.

please read the last paragraph.
