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.

This is quite Ansel Adamsy, but it's great advice none-the-less.

comment Pushing film while stand developing?
So even a highly diluted D-76 would be harder to use for stand development?

comment What are best-practices for personal photo organization in Aperture?
…the problem is that I don't do "shoots." Most of the time, I'm walking around my neighborhood trying to get some interesting candid shot. It seems uncontroversially easy to organize discrete shoots or events using folders, projects, and albums. However, I'm not so sure how to organize the everyday shooting. Any thoughts?
