cheryl, first of all i love your photos. second, yes i think that u can make without cropping. when i say cropping by the way, i dont mean to make 66 rectangular. i dont even mean to steal one mm from here or there. im talking about changing the picture. let us say.. if u make on your 66camera and say 60mm lense a picture and then crop it to look like the frame u would get from the 80mm or 120. by the way, im totally manual too.
read my comments if u want in the "etics/philosophy" - "zen", i hope i guide u correctly. i have some attitude that i express there, and if be helpfull to u than great.
