That's true, and it too was cheating. I didn't process my own film so I didn't get to cheat. I was a Minolta person, but when I decided to get a digital I went cheap, a Canon Sure Shot, which only has an image screen, nothing to put to my eye. I'm slowly getting better at it, though.

I'm a photobug too, if you use SD memory Office depot has them this week 8 GB for $19.99, great deal, I remember when I paid $72 for a 500mb one years ago.

I OJT'd in the Marine Corps in Photography and also went to school at the old Lowery AFB photo school. I spent so much time in the darkroom, we were called "mushrooms" . . . because we were in the dark and were fed . . .well you know. LOL! I hated darkroom work, as much as I loved photography. The scent, the time involved, the harsh chemicals, the red light, the mistakes, the ruined film . . . .

Digital is a Godsend. I love Photoshop and Photoshop Elements is an easy program for non-professionals. I love being able to crop my photos and adjust exposure, etc. But I really like playing around and doing artsy things with copies of certain photos, making sepia toned prints, black and whites out of colors . . . it's like coloring in kindergarten for adults!!

Ah ha! you are right. Ansel Adams, Alfred Eisenseadt, Alfred Stieglitz They all used the darkroom to cheat Adams even said, "My real art is in the darkroom"
Here is an example of darkroom cheating
Ansel Adams Lone Pine

This one is famous for the horses grazing in a streak of light from the sky. The lighter portions of the foregound was dodged in dark room. Without the dodging all of it would be as dark as the rest of the foreground. No horses seen.
Also there was a big white "LP" in the foothills signifying the Lone Pine high school. He burned that out so it could not be seen. It irritated him to look at it.

All that being said most artists and photographers have always used whatever means necessary to "display" a fine work of art. Tricks of the trade are not considered cheating.. they are considered clever skill.

Digital photography has put the darkroom in the hands of the less skilled and less monied commoner.

Email me and I can give you more examples and techniques

cheers

I sold all my dark room equipment years ago, digital is the way to go, however I do still have my 35mm for shooting slides.

A "Veteran" -- whether active duty,discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount up to and including his or her life.

Thanks for the gracious welcome.

As for Graciesmom's question, I plan to go to Ohio for a while this summer, then back to Atlanta before heading to Quartzite and the area around the Salton Sea and Yuma next winter. I'll be going through Texas with a planned stop in Mesquite.

However, all my plans are cast in jello so things can change.

Steve

You need to check the box to accept private messages. When I click on your name, a list of "allowed" activities come up and accepting private messages isn't on your list . . . . it's something you have to change in your personal profile section. Thanks!! GM

I just did that yesterday after wandering around for a while figuring stuff out. It should go through now (I hope).
