  1. Keeping up with digital shooters...

    by , 10-08-2009 at 10:56 AM
    I just paid my subscription. What do I do next? re-explore the site to see how different it is for a paid subscriber. I see that I have a blog and a gallery. Cool! Now, what do I use the blog for? How about a place to publish my progress on keeping up with digital shooters.

    I've found that the primary use for digital photography is filling up hard drives with photos that will never be printed or even viewed ever again. That's a little like the boxes of negatives that most of us have ...
  2. Photographic Rule No. 9

    by , 09-27-2009 at 05:59 PM
    Number 8, if you recall, was to always extinguish your subject. You are instructed to read previous blog for a real hoot.

    Here is my rule number nine.

    Finally got back into the darkroom (read: microscopic downstairs half bath, even more so for one with my generous girth) for the first time in a couple of months for a printing session. Decided to do things a little differently. I have been looking at the work I have done the last two years by guessing at negatives ...
  3. Strange vibes in the air.

    by , 09-27-2009 at 11:50 AM
    Well its been a long while since I've blogged. Actually forgot about this until someone recently mentioned it. So here's what's up: I'll be attending the Fotofest Meeting Place in March. No portfolio yet. How's that for insane? I am working on it (when I have time). Many negs, even more ideas. But not one single finished piece. It will get done-- it always does. The question is how high my stress level will go to get there. I am personally confident about what I'm working on and constantly ...
  4. Winding Time (poem)

    by , 09-23-2009 at 07:16 PM
    As I sit and stare and ponder
    On this life through which I wander,
    Oft I find myself adrift on
    Many a varying theme.

    On one day it may be warm hugs.
    On the next, maybe a thought tugs
    From the edge of my own thoughts, out
    From the depths of dreams.

    And the days are few.

    I may be well, I may be broken.
    I might be shut or widely open.
    'Tis possible I'm in the room,
    Or perhaps far away.
  5. New (to me) 5x12 film holders

    by , 09-19-2009 at 06:18 AM
    I just bought a trio of new-to-me AWB 5x12 film holders from another APUG user. They arrived yesterday in UPS, in perfect condition. They're a great match to the three I already have, and if they didn't have a production date stamped in them, I wouldn't know they were used. My original three are walnut, these three appear to be cherry. It's too bad Alan Brubaker has effectively quit the film holder business. I've been trying for almost 2 years to order more from Alan but every time I checked, the ...
