I consider myself a hobbyist.

Started flirting with photography when I was a kid; I loved the darkroom and devlopment process. I took my first photography course back in 1992; but it took me until 2010 to make up my mind and buy a DSLR.

Still in love with B&W and film... but exploring a new digital world.

comment Whats wrong with my roll of film?
Not sure if it's pretty much the same question as the OP's previous question or if they're just closely related.

See also What is development by inspection and how is it done?

comment What is development by inspection (DBI) and how is it done?
Ok, then. Still if you recall any details worth mentioning on how you've done it, please add them.

comment What is development by inspection (DBI) and how is it done?
Thanks! The article at the end mentions a few interesting key points: "The safelight should not be left on continuously"... "take one negative out of the developer and into the stop bath each time you inspect"... Could I perhaps convince you to add those kind of tips to your answer? Either way, +1.

comment How long will exposed film retain some latent image?
Ok, now I'm intrigued... So I posted a question: What is DBI and how is it done?

comment Should I store my 35mm rolls in the fridge?
@dpollitt Regardless of how I feel about the last comment, I think it's out of topic/not what the OP asked (the fact that we have a film tag speaks volumes). The first part of the answer seems reasonable, but overall: no vote either way from me.

comment What happens if I take too many shots on a film?
I think that's worth mentioning in the question.

comment How was contrast increased back in the film days?
You could also get away with changing the developer's temperature. Great option if (like me) you had old and used developer, you were a bit broke at the time, and couldn't afford to go buy decent chemicals.

comment How to remember to change settings when I pick up my camera?
@theSuda A memento is an object you use to remember something. Like tying a string to your finger, or leaving your car keys next to something you wish to remember (a Remembrall is a memento). And yes, depending on your forgetfulness, you might forget what is it you were trying to remember. Which is why I suggested a post-it note, where you can write down what you wanted to remember.

comment Capturing vapour or faint steam
The image is no longer available.. I believe SE now has some sort of agreement with imgur to avoid this. Perhaps you could repost the image?

comment What is the shutter speed, aperture, and focal length of the Kodak Funsaver disposable camera?
Huh.. I would have guessed f/5.6 and 1/60s. But now that I think of it, that would be an odd aperture for such small lens. Nice to know.
