    Yay.

    I went for my orientation day on wednesday...

    The TAFE looks old on the outside, but quite nice inside. My class is in an airconditioned room (YAY!)...


    And the darkrooms they have. Oh how exciting.. lol. They have those cool doors that turn around (get what I mean?)

    hehe. I am excited. Have also been accepted for Youth Allowance, so the gov. will be giving me a couple of hundred dollars a fortnight. Yay...


    *gets all excited* lol

    You are soo wrong, X-metal

































    .................

    It's university for DUMB Arses. lol


    I started today.

    Haven't learnt anything *new* yet... Today we were mixing chemicals and putting them into a C-41..

    It was *kinda* newish to me... (Yes, I work in a photolab, but our machines, we put replenishment packages in, and they do the most of the work, unless you contaminate)...

    And yes, I know every now and then the chemicals need to be changed - but my boss does that :D...




    It has clicked though - I think they (work) realise that I will learn those things in my course, and so think they are gonna get off lightly & not have to train me...

    ... little do they know, I plan on quitting working there ASAP...

    hehehe...


    We are allowed to process our own films in the C-41 aswell, which I am quite happy about. Shame I have digital now. lol. I might do some film just for the hell of it...

    Unfortuantely still have to have it printed somewhere. But thats OK. I also noted they have film scanners - so I will scan them and take them in as digital. hehehehe.. I am evil. lol

    Yep. thats about all...

    Have prac day tomorrow, we have to shoot 9 exposures of someone holding a grey card...

    4 stops underexposed
    3 stops underexposed
    2 stops underexposed
    1 stops underexposed
    correct exposure
    1 stops overexposed
    2 stops overexposed
    3 stops overexposed
    4 stops overexposed.


    Phew... Using Ilford HP5. They told us to do it twice, incase there is a "bubble" in the processing?


    Anyways, should be fun.



    (by the way, when I saw this post on the list, I thought oooh, someone else is starting tafe... lol. silly me)
