Best of luck to you in Rochester! Be sure to get to the folks at the Community Darkroom on Monroe. Great place.

Congrats Chris! You will learn so much. Enjoy and make the most of it.

Mark and I have outlined a great curriculum for Chris. We hope that we stretch Chris's talent and imagination to their limits. It is going to be interesting.
It should be mentioned that Chris may not be the only intern. More on this later.

Awesome, it's been obvious from some of your posts that you have the drive and curiosity that should help you do well in what has to be a fantastic opportunity. I'm sure they have Internet access in Rochester, so keep us posted! :D

Good for you, Chris. What a great opportunity.

I had a great day chatting with Ron and Mark a couple of Octobers ago, so you have my respect and envy. :) Good luck!

Best wishes and good luck from a fellow Kansan. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity.
Don't forget your snow shovel.

Just thought of something.. how are you going to explain you massive use of internet , talking on APUG during working hours to your new bosses??
You have already spilled the beans on this one... ah maybe PE has me on ignore and won't see this post.
I think we are going to hear a lot less from you... what will we do without you!!!

Congratulations Chris, it's a great opportunity, latch on with both hands and have a great ride.

Absolutely fantastic! Congratulations to you, of course, but also to Mark and Ron. They are going to seriously (and hopefully, not always seriously) benefit from your injection of energy and curiosity. Give 'em hell :laugh:. Looking forward to your 'letters home.'

Since you are moving to Rochester, there are several things that I learned when I worked there:
Rochester looks great in snow.
Spring is wonderful, do not miss the Lilac Festival http://www.lilacfestival.com/. Walk around High Land Park during the Festival.
Fall is great, however if you want to shoot fall colors and waterfall, you need to know that the Finger Lakes and the rivers in Western New York are formed by the retreating glaciers. The rivers run North. The sun does not shine or only shines on the waterfalls for short times during the day [and never at night, but I digress.]. To get photographs of Sun illuminated waterfalls use this software: http://photoephemeris.com/ and read there tutorials: http://stephentrainor.com/tools/ Highly recommended by humble me. [Insert disclaimer about not connected to the enterprise by friendship or economically.]
Kodak was founded in Rochester because it is the World's largest natural darkroom.
The standard 18% Gray card is the same color as the sky in Rochester.
During the winter, stop signs and traffic lights are merely advisory. Drive appropriately.
The local newspaper is called the Democrat and Chronicle, www.democratandchronicle.com/which is called the "D&C". As a male you should know that Rochester NY is the only place in the World where a male can get a DNC! :blink: Warning: Keep your legs together and never turn you back! You have been warned!

Hi Chris, if you get a chance (and since Rochester is closer than Kansas to New Hampshire) try to get some time to visit me. I'll put you to work making a Dye Transfer print.
My theory is that Silver Halide will be important again if civilization cannot continue to support the silicon industry - a few priests have to keep the faith alive!

It is always wonderful when people follow their dream.
I'm rooting for you, for PE and for Mark.
