  • Hello fom CA


    I am new to this community and just wanted to introduce myself. I started photographing as a hobby with film, yes FILM. Then because of life's busy schedule I set my hobby aside. I have recently picked up my hobby again with the digital revolution and I am addicted.

    I have taken a couple photoshop classes at the local community college and I love it, can't wait to learn from all the talent here!

      Hey Jsojunkie,

      I just joined also and I too cut my teeth on film. Still use it, in fact. Imagine that. What part of CA ya from? I lived in SoCal for 24 years, and miss it.

        Well welcome, it seems like this is a really cool forum to learn. Wow, so you still use film that's awesome! I bet you have to get it at a camera shop most places don't carry film at least around here. To be honest I miss shooting in film. With digital I feel like I'm cheating since I can change whatever I want in an image. I'm from San Diego, what part of SoCal where you from?

          Well, I'm from Houston originally, which is where I'm stuck right now, but when I lived in SoCal, it was in the LA area. Alhambra, Rosemead, and then Whittier. I enjoyed Whittier the most.

          Here in Houston, you can still buy film at all the places you used to be able to, but where there used to be a decent selection, now your choices are maybe ISO 200 and ISO 400 print film and that's it. I have to go to a photo shop for slide film or B&W or more interesting print emulsions and especially for 120. Getting the slide film processed is the bigger hassle. My local photo shops sell it but don't take it in for processing. I have to take it to a pro lab for that or else send it out.

          One of the reasons why I joined up here is I hope to learn some techniques for improving my processing of scanned and duped film images.

            I'm so happy to have found this forum! I just got a box full of all my family's photos, some dating back to 1969. The ones relevant to me are circa 1984 and beyond. Unfortunately some have the pesky double exposure that plagued wound film cameras. Saying I'm thankful for no longer needing to hunch over...

            John, do you do any work with film transfer devices? I was wondering how the negatives come out from this process as regards prints or scans made from them. Thanks, Tom

            Just joined. I found out about retouchpro from a member over at Shutterstock. He passed along a sharpening tip he'd learned from a tutorial here and strongly recommended I check you guys out -- so here I am.

            ive come across some 8mm film and was wondering how i go about transfering some of the frames off the film into some digital still shots? im probably going to answer my own question right now,but should i be thinking about using a scanner that is able to scan negatives/slides?
