About me:

My progression through imaging has been classic; My first image was with a pinhole camera and I started with black and white film in high school darkrooms. My college education was distracted with slide film photography and started working professionally using color print films. When digital came into the picture I adopted early. Digital photography shifted me from specializing in star trails to timelapse, and finally I've come to enjoy cinematography the most.

  • One time I was re-uniting with an old friend and in the conversation., he explained that photography is a hobby, there's no money in it, fun things can't pay, etc.  Ironically, his very next ...
  • Of course.  You can certainly upgrade, and yep, if you're willing to do it to solve a problem, you'll probably enjoy lots of other benefits by upgrading.  I think people have answered under the ...

  • I think it is true that "Eclipse" brand cleaner's active ingredient(s) are the same as can be found from Cheaper suppliers.  I had some that I got cheap on ebay once.  IT was good for a while, but ...
  • I paid about $10 for my Norland adhesive. Use hot water to melt away the old balsam. I used coffee temperature hot water. After heating up, the elements are separated. For proper alignment, ...
  • I think you're right about this.  IT also depends on what images you have, I think, and I think unless you are shooting specifically for stock, then it's likely most of a photographer's images are ...
