Not sure if I'm up for it...

I think Eek does some modeling, but not sure if he's dealt with nudes. Still, might be work asking.

Or just say eff it and go for a Sigma 50.

This. Sell the Canon 50mm BNIB, buy a used Sigma. With any luck you won't lose any money.

Received a nice B&H package today -- 8 rolls of Delta 400 and a 220 pro pack of Portra 400. Donde esta Marin, I have a developer question.

I bailed on the shoot. She was willing to pay me $200 for a 2 hour session (I don't know if it's a good rate or not but I would've done it for free. No post work done, she had a touch-up guy who gives her a good rate on model mayhem) but I just didn't feel comfortable enough with doing it. I have no problems with modeling and I've working with her before, but I don't really know what I should be doing when posing a nude body. I went out and took a book out at the library today that has almost a whole chapter on shooting nudes. It's definitely something I want to try after I score a legit black backdrop and ditch this awful white sheet.

I also feel super limited with just my 50 after selling off my gear to jump ship... Which is going to have to wait. redface.gif

Pick up a cheap film body. Never hurts to shoot a few rolls and experiment.
post #17645 of 29551
I shoot film, I have a FTb. I love it to death but right now I can't really justify spending the money on film (HP5), a new tank (Cracked my other one putting the lid on...) and developer/stop/photoflo.

I'm stuck in a bad situation right now. Recently I've been getting requests to shoot portraits, anniversaries/weddings, bar'mitzvahs and events but I don't have much a kit anymore so I have to rent which takes a huge chunk of my profit and at 18 I have a credit card limit of 2k, not leaving much room for security deposits.

Well, take care of your needs first. Cameras can wait.

P.S. Have you tried a lab for your development? Might be worth a shot, but don't starve yourself too bad. Lol.
post #17647 of 29551
There are a few labs around but they either don't have a website or very little info. I forget where in the 'states (I think Cali) but they have a prepaid shoebox-ish box that they ship to you, you load it with your rolls, they develop and scan it, and ship the CDs back to you. I think Ken Rockwell recommended it. I think it was around $250 for as many rolls as you could stuff in the sucker.

Are you... not in the US? I don't always remember, and your Location info doesn't help. tongue.gif

The new layout messed up my Canadian flag...

I'm in Montreal (Quebec), Canada. It's an amazing city but sadly lacks a B&H and KEH

Well, thankfully, it lacks a Luongo as well.
