    Like you have said, just enjoy your film cameras.

    I do edit my scans. Basic curves and level with a free software, Darktable. My “client” (me) pays for the films and camera so I do want he wants. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Your camera, your pic. Do what u like.

    Cheers

  2. I’ve just cancelled my Lightroom subscription and I’ve gone back to Nikon Capture NX-D. I used mostly slide film in the past so I always try to get exposure correct in-camera, even though I use RAW format in a digital camera. I dislike adjusting photos in computer so I usually just add a little brightness or perhaps trim a bit.
    The experience is a bit different when I get film scanned. Cheap roll scans usually require more adjusting, but I don’t worry about it too much because those scans are basically just my contact sheet. Once I’ve made my final selection from the roll, I send the film to the lab for a 50MB scan. The lab does adjustments when you order big scans so there’s little for me to do. I like that!
    Someone said it takes 1-2 hours of processing for each photo? It’s just as well to take up painting if you’re going to spend that much time at it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Probably the person was referring to commercial photography.
    I really like the high-key photo of the view from your flat.
