The new portra stocks from Kodak are effing amazing. They'll blow your mind. You can overexpose the shit out of P800 by 5-6 stops and looks amazing. You should really be over exposing all of the portra stocks, it increases saturation in the colors and looks fantastic. P160 and P400 can over exposed by 1-3 stops.

Snapped this back in November and I just came across it again today. This was taken at UCSB in Isla Vista, CA.

A mix of P160, P400, P800, 400H, and E100. All shot on the RZ with both 6x6 and 6x7 backs. Lenses were 50 f4.5 and 110 f2.8.

Awesome, (even if my reply is a few months later) thanks for the advice Greg. Now that I'm finishing up with school I'll actually have time to start shooting film.

Here are a couple D3100 pictures from around campus:

Thinking about asking for a new lens as a graduation gift. Did some searching, this seems pretty well liked: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/606792-USA/Nikon_2183_AF_S_Nikkor_35mm_f_1_8G.html# Thoughts?

You might be slightly ahead of the average amateur photographer...

What better way to learn photography then to have 1 lens with 1 focal length, limiting your options and making you think more about your composition. need to get wider, take a step back. Need to zoom in, take a step forward. It's very simple. Plus, they're tack sharp and cheap.

I have been using them more lately and i am loving them. the thing i like most is they are not made for a Dslr so i am forced to learn the camera and how it works there is no auto focus or anything

On my D5100 i have picked up some Old Glass from the thrift shop 4 of them plus the adapter to fit them has cost me 80.00

Get the Nikkor AF D f/1.4 and you'll never need another prime. (At least for what most folks use a 35/50mm) For day to day it's what I do most of my shooting with. Unfortunately it doesn't support auto zoom on the D3100 series. In which case you should go with the newer AF-S 1.4G. Either way, don't buy a DX lens if you plan on moving to 35 mm / FX in the future.

I think you mean the 35 F2 AFD as there is no such thing as a F1.4 AFD. The F2 35mm is a meh lens. The 35 1.8 is a better buy.

:huh:

I meant what I said, sorry if I didn't clarify that I was talking about a 50 mm lens. I wouldn't bother with a 35 mm but I know why people with DXs buy that lens.

Mixed up the letters F/1.4D AF
