I just get frustrated. I have no idea how to set up a shot, much less how to meter it. Though I have to admit that I have been trying to expand this horizon.

I have been playing around with cameraless images made from manipulating emulsions on clear fixed film with chemicals, etching, stains, smoke localized heating etc and incorporating various elements permantly attached to the neg with canadian balsam. Can either be enlarged or contact printed.
I also found a book that describes how to do similar things in color using polarizing filters, gels and various prism designs to provide the color.

i was bitten by one at a beach on the rocks the summer of 1990, and
was not a happy-camper for about 6 months. neuro-toxins are NOT fun
I have done the same thing a few times but she doesn't seem to mind, at least not when the shots come out nice...
