Printing can be a carousel off which one might never get off. It can be a slide into madness from which there is no reversal; mounting frustration and darkroom thoughts going Rondinax and Rondinax in circles of confusion.
But I don't mean to let the cat out of the darkbag. Horses for courses, the best camera is the one you have with you, one camera one lens, zoom with your feet and all that.

Seems like you really need to get into the Zone IV it.

Zone system is the Ansel to all things, although some don't give Adams about it.

I've read it only works if you give a sheet about it. Otherwise, you just have to roll with it.

People will make up all sorts of filmsy excuses not to print, but they just dilute their argument to exhaustion. For others, chemicals wet their appetite to get the Jobo done. Let's give them a Patterson on the back.

When it comes to enlarging vs. scanning, photography has become an Andor situation for many. Enlarging is not the Alpa and Omega for all. Some photographers just don't give an Efke either way.

Depends on how you Diafine photography. Some purists say only darkroom printing is true photography. They say if you don't do it, you miss the point, Ansel yourself short.

Sorry for Nikon other people's puns. And if you don't use the right Pen-F your lith will be hard to read.

Who gives a pigment about darkroom printing? I would rather dye than mess with fixer. Getting good results from wet development is not as easel as some think.

I don't have the space or the equipment for darkroom printing yet, but I hope to one day. In the meantime, I'm just trying to do the best I scan.

I'm sitting in the loo trying to figure out if I resemble this or not. But I am stopped too much to know if I should concentrate or dilute.

Don't let anyone pooh-pooh your stock photography - you should have license to do whatever you want.

If you get caught pre-flashing your film you have to pull up your PanX and zoom with your feet.

You may end up a registered offender and even end up in Prism. In that Casio you better watch your Rectaflex.

Charged with incident exposure, that'll be reflected on your rap sheet.

The sentencing guidelines have a dynamic range, so hopefully the judge will not impose Dmax punishment.

And don't forget, if you have a tilt-shift lens, you have to be mindful of the Pentax ME too movement.

Have you heard? Winogrand prize liberal exposure resulting in delayed development and there will be no contacts made.

In a worldwide nuclear winter, would Panatomic X be the best film to use?

If there were a nuclear winter, I'd be less worried about film and more worried about it being a Sinar the apocalypse! Which of the four Horseman is nuclear winter?
