    Hi ya'll,

    I have a VHS video tape that I will give away free except for the cost of shipping. Figure 2 lbs shipping weight with packaging, shipped via USPS Parcel Post only. Payment with PayPal requires a 4.5% surcharge, Personal checks or USPS money orders accepted.

    First person to PM me gets the tape. I'm just cleaning house and decluttering my life and would rather not toss the tape.

    Regards,

    Since "owning" it isn't terribly important, consider just passing it along

    to whomever would pay for the shipping .

    This tape, by the way, is excellent! I've watched the whole series several times and the "printing" video is superb. Great primer on technique, even for the advanced printer.

    I have the three videos -- Printing, Photographing and Photographic Technique. I wonder if there were others?

    I agree, the printing video is the best. I learned a lot from it. All three are often for sale on Ebay.

    No, it's only the three -- but they're the best series on photography I have seen from anywhere. He was a superb teacher and you see how all the Zone VI gear works there. I have all three and have watched them many times and no doubt will continue to do so.

    I have the "printing with" and "photographing with" videos, and greatly enjoy watching them from time to time.

    You can't help but love a guy who doesn't use rapid fixers because he doesn't understand what the rush is. Hahahahaha!

    The "photographing with" video would have been stronger, IMHO, if Fred had devoted less of it to the portait of Judith Miller (did I get that name right?), but I really like the way he explained all the decisions he was making, leading up to the actual taking of each photograph. The ying and the yang, the zigging and the zagging; great stuff. :smile:
