    It's Jali from Jakarta

    Hello,

    My (not a real) name is Jali from Jakarta, Indonesia, a 90s generation, a 35mm shooter and an avid follower of the sunny 16 rule.
    My experience in analog photography started when I was in college. Although my major is graphic design, but there was a photography class for 2 semesters. I learned all the basics: aperture & speed tricks, b&w photography, dof, panning, darkroom, etc.
    After that class, I was abandoning my old analog SLR, switched to a digital compact camera and forgetting all the lessons about analog photography for 10 years, until the year is 2010. I found my abandoned Yashica 108 in the closet, and started shooting film again. And then....it all came back.

    I bought another camera, and another one, and then others, and I found myself deep in love with mechanical cameras. I began to learn (again) the very basic theory of photography: the sunny 16 rule and amazed how effective yet underrated this rule is. So I've become obsessed with sunny 16 and bought cameras that can be operated without batteries: a Pentax MX (lightmeter is broken), a Canonet, and a Nikon F2 (also with broken lightmeter). Those are my holy trinity

    Learning sunny 16 is a real challenge, the cost is hundreds of discarded frames, but I just keep shooting more and perfecting my settings to shoot with the rule.

    Cheers

    Glad you found us.

    I always like hearing the 'back to film' testimonials

    Google 'Fred Parkers Ultimate Exposure Calculator'
    It is a bit of a long read, but the tables at the end are better than anything I have found in an old Kodak Photguide.

    I use them, retyped and photreduced, laminated and taped to the back of all sorts of old cameras with no or inoperative light meters to yield most exceptionally acceptable B&W film exposures.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Welcome! By any chance, have you posted an article at Steve Huff's site? I also use the Sunny 16 rules most of the time, but when indoors I get help from a Luna Pro. :P
