I’ve gotten away from my black and white roots.

When I first got my infamous $3 camera, I needed a roll of film to try it out with. I couldn’t think of anything better than Kodak 400CN, a black and white film that can be developed in regular C-41 color chemistry virtually anywhere. Even better, a local shop had an expired roll for $2. If I were Warren Buffett, I can’t help but think my photography would be different.

This is just a door in an alley in Virginia, but I like it.

Kodak 400CN approximately twelve months outdated, Fuji Smart Shot II (the “smart” part always makes me laugh, becaue I feel like an idiot for using it).

    And I love bikes and i’m actually going for a yamaha R1 end of this year(hopefully). Bikes are also as addictive as photography. For me both goes hand in hand. links to my B&W photos

    You sound like an information tank, on photography and yea ofcourse I would love to have those links to those articles. I’ve already asked my friend to get my Yash GSN fixed. And hopefully i’ll get a negative scanner too as you said! I’m already excited. Actually i thought its too difficult to get the negatives washed and developed. but you made it sound so simple and interesting. I’ll surely give it a try. And mistakes are bound to happen when experimenting..so no worries.(lol)
    Adobe lightroom? I’m good with photoshop, but no too much editing in my photos unless I didnt get it right! I love to crop my photos into a proper size, to highlight the subject. curves and contrast tools are always handy.
    i’m also an addict to panoramas..I just love stitching photos. I think I should give it a try in RAW as it has more quality and clarity than jpg.
    I hope you could help me in finding the right macro lens for my D90..for real MACRO minute details.
