    Perhaps an interesting footnote to my rant- many labor violations have been detailed at Apple facilities:

    Ah perhaps we should combine the two. Poetry written on home-spun plates...

    It is less costly in terms of raw materials, but I find writing to be much more time consuming. I'm never happy with the final written product so I keep at it... for years. Photography, on the other hand, forces you to compose on the spot, a lot more like rapid improvisational writing, right?

    Keith,
    You are the 2nd experimental photographer(for lack of a better description of what I do) besides me,who is also a poet. I picked up the pen many years befor I picked up a camera.
    Poetry is much less costly!

    I can do semiconductor wafer spincoating. With my current setup, I can readily spincoat 6" wafers with extremely good uniformity. Been itching to try it with various emulsions. I am also itching to make some IR sensitized plates.

    Keithwms,
    Yes, I do coat my own plates. But I am not very good at it. I am sure that a description of your coating method would be appreciated on the emulsion Forum.
    I work with panchro emulsions and have to wear an IR "night vision" monocal when I coat. I need every suggestion out their!

    Do you coat your own plates Bill? I've been meaning to start, I have a very good coating technique...

    Perhaps now is the time for all the tradional film photographers to visit the Silver/Glatin Emulsion making forum on APUG. Also www.thelightfarm.com and www.alternative photography.com.
    Instead of drinking yourself silly over the demise of film, make your own! I stopt buying KODAK stuff when they scraped Techpan. To hech with Kodachrome.
