Usually throws me for a loop as I look at the GG and the image just get more and more hazy!

    I take off the back and the lens for a little bit and all is good for the rest of the trip. My legs on my wood tripod all of a sudden are easier to pull out, too!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    As far as recognizing film goes... In the Digital Photo class I'm teaching, I've used a couple film cameras to demonstrate certain things (like shutter speeds, or focusing). A couple of my students looked at me like I had grown an extra head when I pulled out the Nikon F3. But I don't think anybody in the class has never heard of film; some of them don't understand why anyone would still use film, but they all know what it is.
    I *always* wanted to know how things worked. I was so into it, actually, that I took things apart to find out. I don't understand the whole 'just give me the answer' mindset. The best thing about learning something is finding out the hows and whys.

    The fact that kids don't have the wonder anymore makes me sad.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    You've confirmed one of the classic model stereotypes . . .

    Same here. It might be partially because my parents are a nurse and an engineer, too, but I did end up as a scientist. I'm hoping to get my little one interested in science and the "why" of everything (beyond just asking "why" about everything like he is now).
    Imagination is also something that many people seem to lack. It was greatly encouraged in my house growing up.

    Models are not hired for their beautiful brains!

    Is your lens often moist inside??

    I did HALF the shoot yesterday, it was too cold for her outside and we stopped, but it was cold, so I don't feel bad. An image to come soon...
