comment What effect does lens separation have on images?
I do have a lens with this problem, but I wanted to make the question as hypothetical as possible to fit with the site's format.

comment Why does the entire image turn white after setting the white point in Aperture 3?
Hm! The source file is a PSD, and I think this problem has something to do with PSD support. I re-saved the file as a TIFF, imported the file into Aperture, tried to adjust the black and white point again—it worked! Oy. In my broken PSDs: I have a negative, a photo filter layer, and an inversion step. I save the PSDs with the "maximize compatibility" option selected too. Perhaps it would be better to use Lightroom for better compatibility's sake? :(

When I set the black point, I click either the woman's hair or the darkest part of her coat. When I set the white point, I click on the whitest guitar in the background.

Just the color negatives I've scanned--but it happens to all of them.

comment Is it true that '80s 35mm photofilm had quality corresponding to 24 megapixels?
How do demosiacing effects factor into comparisons between digital sensors and film?

comment Why should a digital photographer learn to shoot film?
I'm not sure, guys. While it's true that a camera is a camera—choose an exposure, focus, compose, hold steady, and fire the shutter—it's also true that shooting on different emulsions require different shooting techniques (like you said, Karel). ...but I think that is exactly what "learning to shoot film" means: learning how to pick settings for different films in different developers. There's also other trivial stuff… like best practices for loading and unloading film, how to do real double exposures, how to cock film quickly with one hand, etc.

comment How can I tell if my film is over/underdeveloped?
This is quite Ansel Adamsy, but it's great advice none-the-less.
