  1. Gum Printing Workshop @ Project Basho

    by , 09-01-2009 at 11:49 AM
    This weekend I went to Project Basho in Philadelphia for a gum bichromate printing workshop with Scott McMahon. What a terrific experience. There was only one other student in my workshop, so we had lots of darkroom time and space, and were able to get a lot done. I came out of it with two finished prints and one partially finished print, which if you know anything about gum printing, is pretty productive for just two days.

    Scott is a great instructor, very knowledgeable, very hands-on. ...

  2. Photography, Life, Boredom and Rant

    by , 08-08-2009 at 11:54 AM
    I was reading hoffy's post regarding long term photography projects and it got me to thinking.

    I have printed in two months. I haven't processed any film in as long. I haven't made many photographs in the last month or so. And yesterday was the first time in months when a camera did not accompany on my trip to work. CiM is kind of stalling right now as there is nothing to put in the September issue. And I have lost the urge to chase down material for publishing.

  3. Photos not Stolen

    by , 07-30-2009 at 08:51 PM
    Recently I found some old negatives stuffed in a box stuffed in another box stuffed in an old suitcase. For some, these may not seem old at all- but they were my first attempts to record, in a meaningful way, what I had seen- so that my family could see it too.

    In 1992, at the age of 19, I went to Germany on a stipendium. Arriving in Heidelberg, I discovered that the housing situation that had been promised me had also been promised to a few hundred other students. There was no place ...

  4. Over the weekend

    by , 07-27-2009 at 12:24 PM
    I thought my photographic tasks over the past weekend were going to be simple. Just develop some exposed sheet film and do some long overdue pt/pd prints for a film test.

    Saturday was fine. Sunday, well…

    Sunday started out poorly when I had put my initial water wash into the Jobo tank and started it rotating on my Unicolor motor. This was fine, except when I walked away for a minute, imagine my horror when I heard the sound of water hitting the carpet. Oh no! ...
  5. Stress

    Stress. A five letter word which many people can relate to and which can make your day miserable.

    Now I know why I go out to make photos. I really understand why I go to Columbia Bottom Conservation Area to close my eyes and listen to a viewing platform sing. I might seem a bit crazy for the last comment, but it really is about getting outdoors away from the stress of everyday life and relaxing.

    As for the viewing platform, it does sing if the wind is blowing hard ...
