Re: Thursday 18th October - Battle with Wigan

Congrats to ADAPS :-d . Sorry I couldn't make it to eat my 'fair share' but my son has kindly passed on his 'man cold' and I needed nursing :oops:

Re: Thursday 18th October - Battle with Wigan

For the short-sighted (Dave), those less experienced in life like the youngest (Keasla), and for those who think we'd act as gentlemen when food is on the agenda (Tracey), I'll put it simply - FORM AN ORDERLY QUEUE BEHIND ME! :eat: :lol:

Re: Thursday 18th October - Battle with Wigan

Form an orderly queue for the refreshments - tallest first seems a good idea!

Re: my good news

Many, many congratulations Peter,

Winning the Best in Class with the photo of Melissa is well justified and, if I'm being honest, IMHO it should have won the September 2012 monthly comp here at ADAPS - just goes to show that judging is very personal and very subjective.

Good news,
Barry

Re: 13th September 2012 - Out of Africa

Tracey, If that was indeed your very first presentation talk at ADAPS you should be very proud. You allowed us to share your never-to-be-forgotten experiences in Africa and kept us all well informed re some of the background stories to the images in a very pleasant and entertaining manner. Some of t...

Re: Developing film

Phil,

After passing my 'AS' photography I now have everything you will need to develop your own B&W film (except the changing bag - a bin liner will do though) - measuring jugs, timers, developing tank, chemicals (fresh), film weights, photo thermometer, spirals, etc. Open to offers .

Re: Old Photo Restoration

Phil, Not meaning to boast but I've done many restorations with some notable success. It's isn't a simple task and consequently firms charge an arm and a leg as it's pure labour - but you'll pay for that knowledge of the restorer plus their labour. It depends on the amount of work that's needed. I a...

Re: How many ...... ?

I don't know if this helps but in the days of film if I shot a roll of 36 exposures I would be happy with 2-4 keepers - i.e. about 8%. But in today's 'snap-flash-thank you ma'am' digital age I would reduce that percentage substantially to nearer 1-2% unless you are very determined and can pre-visual...

Re: Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta

Just downloaded it - not as impressive as I thought, but that's possibly cos I'm not into videography.
