Okay, more annoying rookie questions regarding this ancient and still fascinating medium, FILM!
CAFFENOL, yay, nay, or, no Americo, just stay away from it all! xD I'm suffering from full auto, and manual control, from lack of a digicam, other than my cell, however, I find that the ancient art of film, has me coming back for more, and the urge of failure keeps me wanting to do it more!

Ummm... so you're not comfortable with shooting a roll of film, but you're asking about alternative processes?

Look- just get a roll of any film- here is a cheap color one:
http://www.freestylephoto.biz/83140981-Kodak-Ektar-100-iso-120-Size-Single-Roll-Unboxed

Blow through 10 frames, then spend another $5 plus shipping to send it here:
http://www.northcoastphoto.com/film_developing_scans.html

When you get your negatives in the mail, scan them and you're set- you can print as if it were digital.

In terms of developing your own, it does take a little bit of play, and someone to show you all the pitfalls. When you get comfortable with the media, then I would consider getting into basic developing- D76, Xtol, Rodinal are pretty straight forward.

Then you can think about trying out other artsy stuff- caffenol, cyanotype, pyro, etc

Just my 2 cents

"Ummm... so you're not comfortable with shooting a roll of film, but you're asking about alternative processes?"

Yes, you see, here is where the idea kind of made sense to me, in a madman kind of fashion! Since, I fear the film, and, I have already used one 5 frame roll, that I may have already literally blown, whether by over exposure, underexposure, or just no exposure period, then, why not just save a few film dollars developing elsewhere, and, well, just jump head first to a shallow jean pool!? I do apologize for coming off as a dimwitted oaf, that fears his own shadow, and abilities, its just that, I would hate to waste this marvelous film Kodak made just because I can't instantly see the picture as I was trained and spolied rotten, shooting DSLR's! I am an easily confused, and low tolerant directions follower, just ask my wife!
Thanks for the pointers, I really do appreciate them, and, I hope to soon put them to use, and when I do, rest assured, that I will gladly give everyone here greatly earned, thanks, from the pit of my sou! Thank you greatly, for your time, pointers, and ability to withstand my oddities! Sincerely, Americo.rodriguez!

Please waste film. Kodak and Ilford need more business. Shoot without fear. Waste film. I do all the time.

You have to realize that with negative film, you can ERROR massively and still have a nice image. You can over expose by 3-4 stops with Kodak Portra film and it will look just fine.

Further, metering a scene is not that hard. Hell, shoot the scene with a digital camera and copy over the shutter speed and aperture. I shoot 5 rolls of film per week at the very minimum if weather allows. You *NEED* to get started sir.

Is Fuji 400H a very low contrast film? This most recent set of scans seemed to have lower contrast than normal. Below is the original of the church from two posts above.

Not *this* low contrast, no. At what speed did you rate the film?

Thanks edge100. For both cameras (Kowa 6 and GA645) I rated the film around 400. Some at 320 but they don't look much different.

Yes, another non picture post from me.
Hoping it wont be long...

I have a problem I'm obsessing over, dust!

Wow, using VueScan with Epson V750, I find the dust relentless.
Even in the source, currently prints.
Awaiting on some negatives to be processed and returned.
I'm already freaking over how they are going to require handling, care, etc.
It's almost as if you NEED a super filtered positive pressure environment, like a mini clean room.
Man, I really want this film experience to work.

Any thoughts, tips from the experienced folk here?

Are you developing the film or are you sending it out? The dust comes from the film being hit with dust while still wet.

400H is a low contrast film only compared to excessive contrast like Velvia. I find 400H to have a very normal level of contrast. These photos above look almost washed out. That is very much unlike 400H.
