    Hello and welcome to APUG from Dorset!
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.

    By simply starting with the fundamental principles of photography, it can always lay down a fantastic ground work for fully understanding how a camera works. With todays digital era, alot of people simply rely on automatic mode, which for me as a practical photography is really disheartening that people just point and click their camera and they believe that their final image is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Sorry if this has turned in to a bit of a rant, but its always good to be in contact with like-minded film users who seem to share the same passion as myself
    I agree. Many of the concepts behind how we work in Photoshop are directly related to darkroom techniques, especially areas such as curves and masking. If you are not already in possession of a copy, I'd thoroughly recommend the 2nd edition of 'Way Beyond Monochrome':

    There's no decline with film here. I give the security folks at my office a heart attack every time I enter the office because of the camera bag I carry. They hate searching it.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning...It smells like...PHOTOGRAPHY!
