Do you guys upload digitally by scanning prints or negatives?
This is a good question. In theory scanning prints would be the wrong thing to do since it's considered "2nd generation". Meaning the negatives were first then the prints. So most heads would say scanning the negatives would yield better results. But I've seen very good scans of prints, and if you're just uploading them to the interwebs the difference will be unrecognizable. Also getting good scans of negatives can be quite challenging on your own.

Aye y'all. I don't think I wan't to put any forum stuff on the front page until we at least get an aesthetics upgrade.. 

but you guys should all put your @instagram tag somewhere that way I can pass images along for our #hboutthere posts on IG

If they are already 1:1 format it would help so that you don't hate me for cropping it from 3:2 blushing

80mm on MF is equivalent to [url=http://rd.bizrate.com/rd?t=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.buydig.com%2Fshop%2Fproduct.aspx%3Fsku%3DE2CNDRT5I1855%26ref%3Dbizrate%26omid%3D105%26utm_source%3DBizrate%26utm_medium%3DCSE%26utm_item%3DE2CNDRT5I1855%26CAWELAID%3D230005120000027094&mid=24992&cat_id=402&prod_id=5246081889&pos=0&rf=af1&b_id=17&bamt=042c9e3fbe009859&ppr=f8b0298fb91176fd&oid=5246081889&country_code=US&atom=10020&bid_type=0&cobrand=1&af_assettype_id=12&af_placement_id=1&af_creative_id=8&af_id=[PUBLISHER_ID]]SLR 50mm. So it might be too close for indoors shit but its good. I had a Hasselblad 500cm and solely used an 80mm lens.word, I have a bronica and I only use the 80mm. Would love to pick up a 40mm though. 80mm for street might be a bit challenging but still definitely do able.

Yeah, I hear you. At my school they have some scanners built for negatives, so I might get access there. But I think in the future I'll just go with the CD from the developer next time rather than prints.

any tips on developing at home? anything like chemical upkeep, hanging negatives 
(i'm starting with b&w development because i can't think of a way to maintain a high temperature for color developing chemicals)

A few scanned prints from my most recent, and probably last roll from my busted Konica FS-1. Next time, I'll go with the CD from the developer but I may try scanning these negatives too.

Get good reels, I cheaped out got some shitty steel ones and the learning curve to use them was pretty rough. Store your chems in containers designed for photo chems. You can find them at B&H or other major camera stores. One thing I wish I invested in was a film squeegee, I use my fingers but it really doesnt do much and I get water spots.

B&W is really forgiving. For instance, I've developed a few rolls at 75 instead of 68 and things came out just fine. Just follow the process for film you're using and you'll end up fine. 

The first few rolls you develop probably won't come out too great, so just go out and shoot. Don't try so hard on the photos. I find developing your own film is a lot more fun and turns photography into a whole other hobby imo. 

Good luck
