Having witnessed a few beginner and pro photographers make the switch to the newest digital systems in recent years I have seen a consistent struggle with individuals attempting to figure out the most effective techniques to produce the images they have labored so faithfully for while in the photography phase. Many have spent many years shooting using Fujichrome Velvia, not a particular favourite of mine but nevertheless a very popular roll film. Other photographers have come through the negative film ranks where the exposure tolerance is relatively lax and may have been somewhat lazy in perfecting this important technical element of photography.

Sure, you will find exceptions, some of us did our own printing, particularly with black and white imagery. In our modern-day digital world now “we” are both the digital photographer and technician.
