    Everybody is good enough, including yourself. You have to try to love it. If you can produce a perfect exposure on transparency films, digital is "chicken feet."

    Fuji RVP and RDP...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    Darkforce, what you said is good sense.

    Be careful about Tmax100. It is finicky. You better know your stuff before you try that.

    Thanks student,

    I will try to be slow and steady when come to film photography. Only then I can be more aware of what I am doing and spot mistakes and learn fom it.
