Camera Corner

Posted: 12/11/2013 at 17:51

I studied photography as part of my art school training but back then we were using non-digital SLR cameras, and as you say developing and printing our own prints.

I think that the benefits of digital photography are huge -  if I had to buy film and process and print each photograph, would I be able to learn about my new camera in the way that I am at the moment - it would cost me a fortune!

However, I used to love the tactility of processing film myself, and the smell of the chemicals etc  and the thrill of going into the dark room, never quite knowing what you were going to be able to produce

Still got problems with Forum

We live in a fantastic spot - a few minutes from international art galleries, good theatres, superb restaurants and music venues in one direction, and in the other a short walk over the hill to the oak woods and marshes, and the lowest rainfall too

Pa used to give the hedges a good short back and sides just before Bonfire Night - I suppose it 's a bit late to suggest that now  .... I'll get my coat ...........................
