    Thank you.
    It is now my desktop picture.
    You have a very good eye for photography.
    Do you have any training or are you self taught?

    Your welcome backlash. I have taken a couple of 2 day workshops with profession photographers, the best one being John Shaw. They were good, but mostly 35+ years of shooting and fighring out how to compose a picture. But still for every semi decent shot I get, I take 10 to 20 shots.

    When I used to shoot weddings, I always took 400 or so shots to get 100 excellent ones for a proof book. No digital back then!

    Times have changed.
    You didn't actually develop all those pictures did you?
    We have boxes and boxes of old photos. A lot of them we have no idea who the people are because they were before our time.
    We just found a bunch more pictures when we cleaned the shed.
    Also found some VHS tapes from family gatherings and I would like to watch those if I can find my old VHS player to connect to my new smart TV.
    I wish there was a cheap and fast way to convert pictures to digital. I have a device to convert videos to digital but it takes a long time and it's a pain to edit.
    I also know the digital images wouldn't be watched so it's kind of a waste of time.

    Do you have a multi-function printer? If so, just use the scanner option.

    Snappy, ive done several weddings. I hated it. Made me so nervous that i was going to screw up their big day. I too took a lot of shots and back then it was all film. I never got into darkroom work, but had a great local store that did.

    For people i always used Kodak film, but for anything nature it was Fuji Velvia 50 iso only. Imo slide film was so much better than print. In particular if you wanted to do enlargements. I still have a brick of Velvia in my freezer.

    Digital is cheaper, but i dont like the final results as good. Plus iive never learned photoshop. And a good scanner/printer makes short work of taking prints to digital. Just make copies to at least 2 drives. I went thru 1000s of prints doing just that and had a hard drive failure. Lost it all. I was so discouraged i gave up on it for nearly a year.

    Actually, either my assistant or I worked at a photo lab most of the years that I had my business, so yes, I or she, did develop and print the photos but not by hand.

    By the time I closed my business, I pretty much hated it. Was averaging about 7 weddings a month plus some portraits. I didn't hate the weddings as I had an assistant (thank God)! I do wish now that I had done it as a hobby instead of a business.

    I learned photography at the Police Dept. in Sarasota, FL where I was a criminalistics tech back in the late 70's, early 80's. Shooting crime scenes, evidence and autopsies and developing and printing most of the photos. Honestly, that was the most interesting job! And I was so young! LOL

    Nice picture.
    I wonder why people are naturally attracted to waterfalls.
    I know I am, I'll stop just to watch one.
