Thank you, nice you like it.
Where have you been?
bere October 06, 2007, 06:57 PM
oh i've been here :)
und Gütersloh
all these picture i took with a Film camera, so i still have to develop more
Volker October 06, 2007, 07:17 PM
Your pictures are great!!! Do you develop them yourself?
bere October 06, 2007, 07:38 PM
thank you!
unfortunately no, i take the film to a photo house for developing and sometimes i scan straight from the film to upload or i ask them to scan it for me and put on a CD
i have a little experience with black & white developing and enlargement & print but not access to a dark room easily, & with color i would never dare to develop myself heh heh

it was interesting though to go back to a manual film camera and 35mm after using a digital for so long, no photo preview and you just hoped you chose the right iso of film, speed and apertures, it was fun! film is charming and artistic but too slow, and digital has so much easier and convenient :)

Long ago I developed and enlarged my pictures. B&W
was OK but colour takes to many time. And the results were not so good most of the times. ;-)
Oh, you've been in Düsseldorf and don't visited Cologne?

oh very nice and respect for the color processing :) i know it involves a lot of perfect timing and temperatures...
not this time :) i was in Cologne in 1992, i think with my mother, but just about the Cathedral and too little time... i plan to go back! so if you have any recommendations of where to go, or where to drink Bier heh heh, please let me know :)
Volker October 06, 2007, 09:20 PM
Drinking Beer in cologne is not a great problem. :-) But I think the most famous place is the 'Früh'
close to the cathedral. Let me know when you're there and I'll spend you a beer. Or two... ;-)

das ist herrlich!
vielen Dank :)
Volker October 06, 2007, 09:51 PM
Ok,drei. Ich freue mich schon darauf! :-)
