I

I'll email htimsdj and jameswilliamsjones and see if they can make it.

Hmm, I have not heard back from either of these guys, I'll email them again.


I was set to get my Fuji instant film, but B&H is closed for Passover.

Thanks Lee. Dolly has four days off so it is a great Easter. Happy one to everyone else in the group.

Thanks Dale. Rattle their chains. We need good people for a party.

My class final critique will be Wedneday before our gathering so I should have twenty matted prints to show from my new project. It is something I think can expand to a group possibility, and very close, but I haven't gotten clearance on that yet. Just a teaser.

The matts just came off the UPS truck for the series. I have to print from now till critique time. Penny always wants just one little change, to each picture, about four times before we run out of time rather than her ideas. I love it though. Keeps me shooting. I hope everyone else will have work to show.

I talked to Peter last night. He said he would post last night. Peter?? Peter??? He has some interesting things to show, his own work and more of his collecting. Who else is doing what?

Hi guys - I did get Dale's email about this thread (thanks Dale), and I'm definitely in for Saturday, possibly Sunday too. Friday I've already got something going on. Been quite busy with non-photography stuff; I'll catch you all up next week.

thanks, Jeff

From the Midwest Large Format Asylum:

"John,

Just wanted to let you know that Mike and I are planning to join you in Ohio next week. I'm going to leave the Chicago area around 3:30 cst and drive over to Mike's place and catch a ride with him. I'm looking forward to meet with you Saturday and possibly Sunday morning for a time.

Frank "

Mike S, founder of the MWLFA posted earlier that he would be here. Frank runs the website. Great people. MWLFA has a print review in Indiana in January that I have enjoyed the last two years. It was a day of looking at great prints from 19 members last January.

Thanks Jeff B.

I just got a confirmation and contact info from Charlie.

Are you still planning to camp? If so Cindy is still planning to move in on Eva again. I asked Charlie if he would be camping or staying at a motel?

I wonder if the Country Maid has considered renting over night parking space?

Evan,

Glad you are coming. For those that don't know Evan, he shoots 11x14 and makes some very nice images. We met first time in Louisville at the View Camera conferance some years back.

All comers, please bring prints to show.

John and others,
We had talked about portraits and I wonder if that is still on? I'll still bring some mono flashes if we want to play with them. If we have a zero interest I'll leave them behind.

Looking forward to your special shooting places and seeing everyone again.

Lee,

That sounds like a great idea to me. The weeping cherry is just going out of bloom now. Maybe the apples will hit by then. Can't promise. I think portraits are a super idea.

Looking at the list of attendees, this is an event I would really like to take part in. Unfortnuately, I have theatre tickets for Saturday night, so I will have to pass (again... wasn't I doing a show during the Nov. gathering?) I hope to be able to join you some day.

Cheers, and best wishes to all...

I think I will be able to make it (with Nate in tow). I'm thinking of driving over on Friday in time for dinner and staying 'til afternoon. I'll post when I'm more sure of when. I don't have much for new prints, but we'll see.

Looking forward to your visit. Could you bring the 16x20 prints from the glass plates to show? That sounds like a very interesting project. How are you maintaining firm contact with the print paper? What caused your choice of RC over fiber? Is there some advantage with glass plate? Most of all just come. We have missed you.

The plates weigh enough that firm contact doesn't seem like a problem. :) And RC is pretty flat. I chose RC because the client isn't that concerned with awesome prints as he is just having a positive print for viewing (and scanning, likely). I started printing glass plates for him a couple of years ago with mostly 8x10s. I showed him RC and fiber and he said RC was fine. These days, I don't have as much time for washing either.
I wish I had some of the earlier plates I printed - some were interesting.

In terms of Polaroaid Portraits, I got the 4.5 v battery for my Pola 250 and the auto metering/shutter seems to be responding appropriately to light. B&H was closed all last week, so I don't have any film yet, but I'm still planning on trying to get a shot of everyone that wants to sit for the camera.
I'll have to use available light as I don't think that camera has a xenon flash synch.

Bethe,

Thanks for the clarification. Sorry there aren’t any prints to show.

“I don't have as much time for washing either”. Please take a look at the vertical print washers while you are here. You put the prints into one filled with water, turn on the water to the flow you want, walk away, come back an hour or more later and they are washed. From there you squeegee the water off and dry on screens.

Just one more item on the wish to see list and I’ll stop pestering. Do you have any of the family Daguerreotypes that you would show?

Thanks,

John

Dale and Lee,

Thank you again for offering to do this. It should be a lot of fun and everyone who wants will have a take home gift.

Thanks,

John

The party is official. The porta potty has been ordered. Remember please that we rent this because we fear our elderly septic system will not tolerate the load. The cost is $111.00 for the weekend. Historically we have put a jar out on the table for contributions. We will be most grateful for your help. Last event was the only time contributions did not equal cost. We would rather not go through the trouble of collecting a cost per person, but we can switch to that in the future if needed. I will consult with Eva the accountant and enforcer.

Thanks,

John,
who has dug up and repaired three septic systems in his life and would rather not have that pleasure again.

Eva, Charlie and I will all be camping. Tent camping this time though.

Camping at the Country Maid would be great! I could work with them on my new series of breakfast ice creams .....
