    Hint... It ain't about cameras.
    You always surprise me and its always in a good way...

    Also why isn't your most expensive camera a 20x24 "field camera" or something ridiculous? Haha

    I have seen quite a few samples from Diana devotees etc. and still don't like the photos. There are people who appreciate hitting their corns with ball peen hammers because it feels so good when you stop.

    Bad is in the eye of the beholder... Just because you don't see it, it doesn't mean that "art" can't be created with them.

    I am attracted to well-executed examples of photography done with poor-quality optics/incomplete light seals/overwhelming flare...

    It is a direction towards abstraction. But primarily it exemplifies a common sentiment here: It's not the camera that takes remarkable photographs, it is the photographer.

    Though I am now experimenting with (developing the film right now) a half-frame roll from a camera which I believe at least tries to form quality images. I don't think this camera qualifies as Lomo, but it's another chip away from the Group f/64 ideal.

    Don't know why I'm surprised, darn thing (Yashica Samurai Z) forms reasonable images on film.

    I've tried shooting through shot glass's, thick glass ashtrays, colored vases, and bought cheap Cokin and no name screw in filters. If I destroyed them I just toss them. For me its just fun seeing what I get and a lot never make it to the stop bath. I develop C-41 color and black and white film in D-76. If you are enjoying it do not worry about what anyone else thinks. I get grief from my brother all the time because I still use film.

    Expired film is fun to work with too.

    But the 100 speed film I just tried tests at speed between 32-40. Will I be able to remember to push the +/- button twice every time I turn on the auto-everything camera?

    then there are the occasional serendipitous accidents in the developing tank of course.
    I'm interested in abstraction, although this started out as just a simple snap of a landscape (it was on one of a few rolls shot quickly for the purpose of my trying out reversal) it ended up as something I like very much:



    The frustrating thing is that though I have notes on the process that created this , I bet I could never reproduce it ...

    Just dip it in water for 10 minutes, then put it in a zip lock bag wet, then put in the freezer overnight, then thaw it, repeat the water logging process, then freeze it again overnight, take it out dry it in the darkroom, re-roll it in dry paper, and shoot, should work
