  6. Re: Likely Very Naive Question, sheet film then scan to produce a digital print.

    Let's be honest.

    The vast majority of digital shooters would not be involved in photography at all if it wasn't for the instant gratification that digital offers.

    That's really nice. I've been cropping your photograph on my tablet. Zoom in. Lose most of the dark to the left and the top.
