I used to print my own black and white prints, years ago. My Man and I were going to set up a dark room in our basement, when we bought our first house. I got pregnant, and I thought, "Well, the dark room will give me something to do between feeding and changing the baby." LOL!!!! I was so naive. That baby took the life out of me. I have bottles and chemical pans and tongs and a things, and an enlarger and even a print dryer. It's all in our attic and was never set up. *sigh*
Now, with digital cameras, it's so different.
But, I take a lot of photos. So many that I am not in most of them, because I'm behind the camera.
I saved a friend's wedding once. Her photographer really screwed up her pictures (the a hole didn't know how to program a camera to work with a flash, is seems) and nearly all the pictures he took, after the first roll or two were ruined. I had been taking pictures the entire time, thinking I'd give them to her husband and her later. When I told her I had the entire wedding and even the preparation on disks, she was ecstatic. She gave the photo place the disks and they said, "We don't use other people's work." She said, "You can't use his work, because there are only a few dozen pictures. Use these." I believe there was an ultimatum, with a lawyer's name being used. They used my pictures.
They also refunded part, but not all of her money, as some of his pictures were usable.
Anyway, I love to take pictures, but I hate putting them in albums and hate getting them printed. So, they sit on the computer or on disks or our external drive most of the time.
