Hey all,

I'm looking for advice on what to shoot for my Photography 2 class. I'm shooting Tmax 100 film, it's 0 degrees here, and there's about a foot of snow on the ground. My next assignment is "found object". Basically, to find something that looks cool with out changing it. We are artists, so we are supposed to view the world differently.

The thing is, I HATE shooting snow because of all the dodging and burning in the darkroom!

Any tips?

Thanks,
Jordan

Shoot snow.

If you just do the things you like and are good at, how are you going to learn anything?

Gaaah, but then I have to spend three hours in the darkroom, dodging and burning. We're printing on fiber based paper, which takes foorreeeever, just to do a test strip!

i'm jealous of your darkroom... I'd love to be able to try that... why don't you go 'urban style'

Just out of curiosity, do they teach you digital at some point? I shot film for years and never really showed a lot of improvement. But once I got a DSLR, my growth as a photographer improved by leaps and bounds. You should learn to do both, but IMO they should be teaching you that which has become the industry standard. You can learn composition and the other artistic merits as easily with digital as you can with film. Probably easier. :)

IMO, digital is a crutch for many, well photoshop is. newbies tend to shoot anything and "fix" it, rather than concentrating on getting it right first.

I think there is a lot to learn from film, and film of all varities, and that it helps you learn photography as a whole faster. digital is a great form, but its important to learn all aspects.

I think I just said that.

Just curious, do you shoot weddings with film?

Well, all of our actual shooting and prnting is done with film. Digital Photography 1 & 2 teaches Photoshop techniques, like making black and white photos colour, etc.

Most of the kids here probably couldn't even afford a DSLR. Some of them have trouble coughing up the $100 for a Pentax K1000.

But isn't that exactly what you are doing with film?

Yes, folks, I know that I am replying to a many-years-old thread. So what? There's nothing wrong with that at all.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
