An interesting article. I can identify with Jerome's explanations and feelings. Above all, his final remark: "What I do miss is the magic". But a taste of that old magic returns when I print my (digitally) adjusted images.
I've recently purchased a pinhole camera for 120 roll film and want to experiment a bit with Tri-X, then scan the film. The only dark work I plan on is, loading the film into developing cans.
Thanks for post the link!
