Hey all,

I took a picture. If there are any photo savvy kossacks that would like to answer a few questions about it please take a look and tell me what I did to mess it up. I'll explain and post the photo below.

Okay, first, here's the photo:

Nunnery T70 Film HDR

It is a nunnery/seminary/churchy building at St. Edwards Park in Kenmore, Washington. I took the picture on my old Canon T70. It's actually two photos. One I underexposed by maybe 4 stops to pull out as much detail on the sky as possible the other was exposed properly. The canon T70 was my father's which he purchased in 1984 or so. It's still my favorite camera to shoot on even though I need to whisper sweet nothings into it's hot shoe before I use it so that it functions properly. Anyway, I like shooting digital and digital is great for HDR stuff but I LOVE shooting film. This is my first attempt at shooting film and then post processing HDR. So my question is (since I couldn't find my answer on line - no my google isn't broken) why do I have that weird ghosting effect all through out the picture? Is it a quality of the film (Kodak Pro BW400 C-41)? Is it something that happens when you do HDR with film? Maybe the machine it was developed on (I am no longer allowed to turn my bathroom into a darkroom anymore as per the better half) effects the digital copy of the picture? I noticed the digital copy was much noisier than the prints. Any help would be appreciated. I would really like to do more film HDR but if I can't figure out the light issue I will need to relegate myself to digital HDR (ho-hum). Thanks in advance!


is nice, no?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
