      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Pushing Slide Film Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to fix my self-induced mess. Any help would be appreciated.

I photographed Indians doing a war dance around a campfire. I pushed my 400-speed Fuji Provia slide film to 1250. They turned out great! My problem is I didn't set my camera back. I never push film, and I'm used to not having to set film speed since it is DX coded and my camera reads it on its own. So the next morning I shot some rolls of film in bright lighting, again, 400-speed film at 1250 (I ran out of 100 speed). I've identified the messed up rolls through clip tests. On many, the darks appear too black and detail-less. But surprisingly some don't look half-bad, and these tend to be the rolls, which I have one frame to judge by. I've been telling myself I have to develop them all pushed. They'll be grainy, and the galloping horses will be verrrry sharp images.

Is there a drawback to pushing film in bright light conditions that I am forgetting about? The exposures shouldn't be too light, should they?

First of all I can't believe you got any keepers pushing your slide film as far as you did, wow! Slide film normally doesn't have nearly the latitude that print film has. I've usually only been able to push slide film one stop with decent results and have been lucky to get two stops with print film.

You have to develop them with pushing instructions. I think you've identified what your results will be as well, grainy for sure. The exposures will be correct if you got them correct in camera even with pushing. Considering the extra cost of pushing I'm not sure it would be worth developing unless these are valuable images, then I would go for it.

I'm sure glad I don't have to make those mistakes again, I ruined more than one or two rolls of film that way Weed Shark. Of course there are plenty of other mistakes of a person can make with any camera. Good luck with the photos. Let us know how they turn out.

These rolls are definately worth processing, I can't believe I did this to them. That Sunday morning was some of the best stuff I shot in 4 days of photography; top Lakota models in great concepts. It's why I'm double checking my thought process.

Thanks for the reassurance!

Thanks for the additional reassurance.

The nice thing for me is, as an artist, I don't have to paint the graininess. smile

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
