I wish everyone I worked with could multitask as well as you, but think how valuable you would be without the internet thing, you would get a raise, hell you may replace him/her.
Look forward to seeing you in Toronto.
Thanks Bob, I'm looking forward to meeting you as well.
Truthfully, when I got this job they told me I'd have a lot of free time and I said, "that's ok, I've got hobbies!" It's a small family office, the work is minimal, I answer phone calls and input data. And I have gotten a raise believe it or not! ;)
But I do see your point as well...
Honestly, I'm cultivating my true interests here on APUG and elsewhere with photography, and I'm taking very real steps to make it my real work. Gearing up for grad school and doing free-lance and pro-bono stuff on the side.
I refuse to exert my life's energy in pursuits that I don't really care about, that only equate to "making a living".
Ok, but enough about me.
Hopefully, when Chris meets you in Toronto, he will have a bundle of Azo type contact prints with him that he made from scratch in class. He will be bubbling over with enthusiasm and will tell you all about the workshop!
I hope! ;)
I would suspect that to be an accurate prophecy Ron... :joyful:
Ahh, Don beat me to it, I see...!
Well, here's more: http://www.cydecosse.com/galleries/gum_fl_foods.html
Indeed, they look like incredible prints of high technical quality. Here are some more of Keith's (and notice whose commenting on these!)
But what's any of this got to do with carbro printing? ;)
That's quite funny, but also a nice reminder that you've got free time where you make time for it.
It's hard as an amateur to find chunks of time that will allow you to carry out 1 phase of a process, without being wasteful & inefficient. All the more that you're an amateur and what takes a pro an hour & a half before breakfast might take me all day!
I wonder where Keith takes the train? :)
A nice piece on Mac McCowan's work with the carbro process. Not a technically great article, He's one of a handful of photographers that still use the hand-processed carbro gelatin method to create high-contrast prints.... huh? But anyways, hope you enjoy the read.
I've been to his website before, carbromac.com, but didn't snoop around too much. Apparently he does commercial carbro printing. I wonder what he's using for bromide paper...
