    You could probably say the same about analog photo: until you've printed your 10k in your darkroom, you don't know about photo.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I heard it as a Cartier-Bresson quote, but who knows.

    I actually did it.

    After taking money out of my first ever pay-cheque to buy the first camera, a Practika fx3, I figured that the best way to really learn photography was to make lots of exposures and take note of the successes and failures. The local camera store ran a B&W darkroom and they developed my film, usually HP-4, and made a contact sheet all for A$1.50.

    I was on my way and about 300 rolls of 36 exp later I felt ready to tackle Kodachrome and a home darkroom.

    Looking at those old negatives and contact sheets convinces me I went about things the wrong way. I should have done a proper photography course with a good teacher. Ten thousand photographs, many featuring the cat and the dog, are a sign of inefficiency not diligence.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
