Looks like I need to make more prints...

Just out of the darkroom, after making small (8x10") RC prints for the first time in a long long time.

They're in the washer now, along with a few FB prints just to prove to myself that the negative still is as good is it was the last time I printed it - and it is. But I think I'll have to make a few more, considerably larger, when I get home from the workshop!

Excellent Ole, mine are just dry. TheFizz is in the darkroom tonite...

Yes I have darkroom time booked in with my wife for tonight so I better make it count or I'll be under major pressure for the weekend.

I have 100's of negs but can't decide what I want to print :rolleyes:

01-22-2008, 08:56 AM
i'm printing tomorrow... i think i've decided.... but reserve the right to change my mind at the last minute! c.

I've made 12 prints from the same negative now, on four different papers.

Maybe I'll find a different negative and make some more tomorrow, I've got choir practice in an hour now.

The funny thing is that the one I printed now is a MF negative from a folding camera, the "possibles" for tomorrow are 35mm negatives...

Thanks everyone, looking forward to meeting y'all.

I've spent the whole night alternately sitting up in bed or crouched over the toilet bowl, and finally got a few hours sleep until right now. Since the stomach upset which is currently making its rounds here in Bergen tends to last for two or three days, I'm not going to make it to the workshop. :(

01-25-2008, 06:54 AM

Aargh!! aswell.

Sorry to hear that Ole, was looking forward to meeting you.

01-25-2008, 12:56 PM
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.. I'll be expecting some wonderful prints now for the exhibition ;)


01-28-2008, 03:10 AM
Well what can I say, colour is back in my life :)

Thanks to those who attended, hope you enjoyed it as mush as I did.

Tim will be back in the spring for "A Day at the Bleach" which promises to be something different.

A great great workshop, I learned loads, obviously from Tim but I learned a lot from everyone elses work too. A great format for learning.

Thanks to everyone that came and hard luck again to Ole, sorry you missed the fun.

This did not seem like a workshop - it was a playshop and it was great fun. Thanks to everyone, and especially to Tim, for all the encouragement and instruction.
