    "How to sharpen pencils" - sometimes I think this is me about analog photography?

    worry

    Well, it all makes perfect sense to me. Should I be worried?

    There are so many things wrong with his process that I don't know where to begin. For one thing, it is called a "stylus" and not a pencil. This shows his ignorance even before he botches the whole job right in front of the camera. And he's satisfied with the work that he does. That is just so sad. His finishing and clean up is an absolute embarrassment, and anyone who thinks otherwise is wasting their time with pencils. For another thing, he obviously knows nothing about pencils if he really thinks No. 2 are worth anyone's time, effort or money. They are pure shite.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    As I have said before: we gotta have more cowbell !!

    But rest assured: You can rent one at Borrow Lenses for your next photo shoot.

    When still in doubt, just watch this instruction video (the full 10 minutes) while contemplating your next shot:

    So you won't get "goated" along the way ..... :

    Oh man, did anyone else see themselves on this thing? I'm going to start sending my film off to Walgreens or something.

    I thought that hammer on the hammerforum website was a little too pricey for me, so I've gone back to a drill and screws. I asked about hammers & nails vs other types of fasteners over at the construction site, and they mentioned screws. At least that's what I think they said. I'm pretty sure they said that I should get a screw, or something like that. Does anyone know where I can get a solar recharger (German, not Japanese) and a 1000' power cord for working in the neighborhood?
