I Take Photographs, Which I Fi...

I take photographs, which I figure makes me a photographer, but I don't do it for money, only for fun. Now that school is out I am without a dark room and have been forced to switch over to digital, which would be better if I had the money for Photoshop. Still, I take pictures of as much as possible, and I set up photo shoots with friends. My current fascination is the body as a canvas, so I will paint the naked bodies of my friends and then photograph them. The black and white film photos were fantastic, for some reason the digital ones didn't have the same magic. The human body does fascinate me, and hopefully the digital will start working for me soon so I can pursue this area.

I myself am also an unpaid but very happy photographer. I 've actually been only taking pictures for less than a year. I love it!! I won't (hopefully ever) take digital pictures. I love the old-fashioned cameras. You mentioned a dark room at your school. Did they teach you how to set up a dark room? I'm wanting to develope my own pictures, but can't find any classes for that or anything except digital developing in the computer. If you know what I need and how to do it please let me know. I'd be eternally grateful.

Have you tried the GIMP at all? http://www.gimp.org/ Also, how cool are your friends?!? Naked painting sessions!!
