Your videos are very informative J. Cant wait for the DVD also. Any chance selling it here in the Philippines?

Thanks guys,

I know this one isn't as fun, because its a plug for something, but I think it really is a handy thing.

The DVD's will be available wherever you can order from Amazon. IDK if that includes the Phillipines, but if it doesn't, let me know and I'll get one to you personally.

It was the butler, right?? :p

Nice work Jason.
I didn't see the index page though :)

Ok I have seen all your videos now and all of them are both informative and quite fun to watch. You are doing a great job and Im looking forward to the DVD.
I did a couple of shots of my Bathroom/darkroom for your B/D thread but can't downsize them for posting here :(

Kind regards

I think you have the looks and the charisma to start your own cult.
Those videos are just the beginning.

I'm thinking about that. Do we have to call it a cult?



Oh, as suggested, here is the direct link to the Exposure Record book.

A suggestion is to print inside the cover various information:


Filter Factors for commonly used filters

The arithmetic for using filter factors

Bellows extension factors and the math for figuring it out
(Perhaps you could put a square shape on the cover that could be put in a scene just like the Calumet tool and include the math for measuring it on the ground glass to determine the extension exposure factor.)

Reciprocity factors for commonly used films

Arithmetic for combining multiple factors


That would save having to look at multiple sheets of paper blowing in the wind and would make the booklet very useful in the field.

Those are very good suggestions, and I'm going to revise the book at first opportunity. I'm also, as suggested, going to add space at the front where the photographer can can create an on-going index of the contents.

Thank you for the thoughtful input,

J

You're welcome. I really enjoy the video clips and think you do a good job.

I think it would be great if there were an APUG library of hundreds of little video clips organized in the same manner of the forums. For example, in Darkroom there could be the dry down video, a video on bleaching, various aspects of split grade printing, various toning, mixing chemicals from scratch, various masking techniques, stand developing, etc. Also, a video tour of various APUG darkrooms.

For Large Format Cameras, videos could be included for selecting and using dark cloths, attaching lenses to lens boards, setting up the view camera, proper focusing, loading film holders, etc.

There is so much potential for this. Short, specific videos would be preferable. I would be willing to pay an extra access fee to view a video library like this, especially if the library is dynamic and expanding. I would prefer that to buying a DVD.

I think that's kind of Sean's idea with his new site, photocentric.tv

I tried to open photocentric.tv but the links don't work.
