I find this hard to admit, but using digital with my film has taught me more about exsposure then before I had that advandage. When I first shot film as many of you know it can be a trying experience. i wanted to learn on a manual camera and I am not sorry I did. At times though it was hard to see where my exposures were off until I started to scan film and learn some of the tools PS offered. I begin to see the true range Were a good negative begin and where it ended. Now I still believe film is king in resolution,shadow detail and all around best for larger prints, But digital is a nice tool to have to explore the creative part of the film. Cloneing,sharpening tool,contrast,back lighting adjustment, are just a few tools that allow you to explore the limits. The key is always good composition, but I know it is not a perfect thing, So I have to admit PS and digital makes a nice companion with film. Monte Johnson.
