That's a comforting point for me. It's nice that everyone has doubts after they click the shutter, isn't it? As I remember, he was referring to the need to work the image, to keep trying to perfect...

Well, I guess I'm just being too literal. I appreciate your points. I interpreted Hurn's advice as more specific: pick a subject that interests you (for example, Wales), refine it (Wales changing...

Excellent, thanks for all the advice. I think I'm going to try room temperature storage inside the bulk loader, or just do the whole thing at once. I can definitely use 18 rolls of film pretty...

Well, not the answer I was hoping for, but I appreciate the advice. I guess a lot can go wrong when you're dealing with 100 feet of film. -Laura

Another Bulk Loading Question - Film Storage

I've also decided to start bulk loading film, and just got a loader and a 100-foot roll of Tri-X. My question is storage. I would rather not load the first roll all at once. I plan to store the...

Excellent, thanks for responding. Yes, I agree with you (and Hurn) that what appears to be lucky is certainly more than that -- your example of the sailor photo, or his own example of a photo of his...

Okay, I'm going to throw a different opinion in here. While I too found the book interesting and thought-provoking, and well worth the read, I personally thought some of Hurn's prescriptions were a...

For what it's worth, I have used a 50 f/1.4 summilux asph on a ZI and found no problems wide and close. Nor at any other aperture or distance. I still use it all the time.
