Well, thats good. You notice more things regarding light!
No Tex, I did not mean for the description to come out that we had bigger gear than others. It was merely a statement of what we were using and how the public reacted to it.
I've been doing the same. My wife came home yesterday at about dusk, and asked why all the lights were off. I was like 'oh....I didn't even think to turn them on. '
The power came on Saturday.... now I am so used to NOT having power that I forget to flip on the switch when I come into a room!
"Is this a Hasselblad?"
The perennial question. There's always one in every crowd. That being said, there's nothing like a large format camera to bring out people's curiosity.
Thanks Mike! We finally got power yesterday! No more candles and beef jerky! Have they got power in your area yet Valerie?
The point of your blog seems to me to be about you and your mate having "bigger ones" than anybody else. Is that what photography has become? who has the biggest one. Sad.
Btw what is a blog? Is it a public diary or are people supposed to answer and/or give opinions?
Looks like people can answer and give opinions!
My enlarger is in the attic and I have to set up the ladder then pull it up to close the door. All of my print washing is done in the bathroom too. Not ideal but much better than not having it.
I'm wondering if any of those digital shooters were from the press...and you might have your image in some local paper as "these two strange LF photographers who came out of the woodwork!" If you find one...get the web site for that paper so we all can see it....
Good to see news from you Ron, and of course Valerie..our thoughts have been with you guys. Hope you both DO get out and share what you find with us.
Sorry about the baby squirrels Valerie, I know what fun that can add to a day with their antics.
