comment How can I capture blurry movement and freeze a subject in the same photograph?
I quite like it as-is to be honest, its a bit different. Im not convinced its done on purpose to fool people.

comment Why does my Neewer external flash take a long time to recharge?
oh! yes that is a long time... try brand new, good quality batteries - I tend to use NiMh rechargeables

How long does it normally take?

comment Are older Hasselblad H series cameras worth investing in?
erm..... well both really! I am not after a work horse / commercial camera so want it to retain value as well as offering the best usage

comment How much does a drop in temperature affect focus?
Thats like saying "if you cant PROVE there isnt a god, there must be" - I'll leave it to you to calculate and somehow visualise the effect of a 15C temperature variation on a "14mm lens" - the linear thermal expansion ratio of hard glass is between 4 and 5.9 x 10^-6, and aluminium 22.2 x 10^-6 - :-)

no... what im saying is, it cant be calculated, so im not going to try.

comment Is this xray fogging on my film? Or something else entirely? (with examples)
@OlinLathrop - well I can clearly see faint blue tinted stripes/blobs.... (but I cant answer the question)

comment How much does a drop in temperature affect focus?
yes... so its basically impossible to calculate without an extremely advanced computer model (which will probably be wrong anyway when you factor in grease/lube, tolerances, wear etc)

comment How does photography (as opposed to physics) define “focal-plane”?
As far as i can gather the "focal plane" is the point behind the lens at which the image is in focus (or at least the part of the image you WANT in focus...) this is of course not always at the sensor / film, therefore i would say no, the sensor/film does not ALWAYS occupy the focal plane. I would say that is therefore the "desired" focal plane.

comment How much does a drop in temperature affect focus?
@MichaelClark - yes 2 reasons: I have no way of calculating that, and secondly there is a huve variation in materials, shape etc of the optical elements.
