    Hi, I'm new to Photography, was wondering if any experts out there could help me out on these questions.

    1. How do you check to see if the film is actually going through the camera after you put in a new roll?

    2. Which step(of the ten) in developing film is critical?

    3. And what are the (three) critical measures?

    4. How do changes in these (above) effect the film?

    5. List the F-Stops normally found on the average lens, in order (but not for a Zoom lens).

    6. Which F-Stop lets in the most light?

    7. What shutter speeds can you use for hand-held camera use?

    8. What shutter speeds can you use with an electronic flash? How do you determine that for your camera?

    9. What determines how much light reaches the film?(I think there are three things)

    10. What should you avoid metering?(at least two examples)

    11. What sort of thing would be best to meter in a subject?

    12. If your camera's meter suggests F-16 at 1/500th of a second, what additional f-stop and shutter-speed combinations wiill let in the same amount of light?

    13. If you want the background out of focus (example, for a portrait), what f-stop(s) might you select?

    14. (For Above) What else could be done to keep the background out of focus?

    this is photography 101 stuff. if you can't find the answers in the book that you have, you'll have much difficulty going beyond this.

    sure; i'll help you if you help me.

    what effects does the philosophy of Camus have on the dynamic cognitive processes of humans? i've been toiling over that all day.

    Not sure if you applied that correctly, nevertheless I'll attempt to help you.

    Camus insisted that man is too far apart from his life, an alien to his own existence. The effect on "dynamic cognitive processes of humans" is simple, man is in pursuit to free himself from God, to declare true independence.

    Now please, take a minute of your philosophicaly burdened time and help a fellow student out. I need these answers by tonight.

    Md means? :?

    I was under the impression looking for help on a photography forum site would be most pertinent, not quite sure why I'm having difficulties obtaining diligent responses. From what I've gathered from the responses I did receive, this stuff is like ABCs to you guys, why the lack of help?

    1. With an older style mechanical 35mm SLR the rewind knob should rotate as the film is advanced. Modern electronic auto-focus 35mm SLRs and medium format SLRs normally won't function if the film is not advancing properly.

    2. Developer, if I have to pick one.

    3. Temperature, concentration, time, and agitation.

    4. More temp, more concentration, more time, more agitation usually results in more contrast and a denser neg. Less of these things results in the opposite.

    5. f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16, f/22

    6. f/2

    7. the rule of thumb is to use a shutter speed that is the reciprocal of the focal length or faster

    8. For a focal plane shutter you need to be at the flash sync speed or slower. This is usually moreked on the shutter speed dial, and it's in the manual. Leaf shutters sync at all shutter speeds.

    9. Shutter speed = time and aperture (f/stop) = intensity

    10. Things that are very light or very dark, unless you understand how your meter works, and then you'd have no problem.

    11. The most important thing. Hopefully it's middle gray. :wink:

    12. f/4@1/8000 = f/5.6@1/4000 = f/8@1/2000 = f/11@1/1000 = f/16@1/500 = f/22@1/250

    13. f/2

    14. Use a longer focal length or decrease subject to camera distance.
