So I'm sitting here grading student essays and sipping wine. The assignment is one I give every semester: visit a gallery or museum with a photo-based exhibit and write your thoughts. It is always wonderful to read how a few are turned on to art/photography.... most of these students have never stepped foot in a gallery or museum before this. I want them to see photos "in person", not via book or internet.
But this semester..... how amazing... gratifying... to read these
I was doing a little shopping online, and found an auction for a complete album of cartes de visite. The neatest things in the album are two photos of some old shops in Camden, New York, a soldier in a fancy uniform with feathered hat and saber, and a portrait from the Brady studio in New York. Some of the subjects are identified on the backs of the cards, most are anonymous. There's one cabinet card by an A.F. Hawes, of Taunton, Massachussetts - I wonder if he was any relation to the Hawes of Southworth
Well, the darkroom is not a room yet but is getting there. I have my first roll of black and white that I can develop in my camera. I have all my supplies and equipment for the darkroom. I'm hoping that by the end of February I'll have my first print! If my room isn't done I will just set up a temporary darkroom in the basement. I have read everything I can get my hands on and the past posts from this group have been invaluable.
I'll let you all know how it goes! Thanks for
So I've been reading Tim Rudman's Book and got some Arista Powder Lith AB and just had to give it a whirl. I read over the "how to" section of Tim's book several times, enough for a general idea to sink in but definitely not complete comprehension.
My first challenge was that I thought I had enough developer to make 1L when I actually had enough to make 1gal of each A and B. The largest container I had was 2L from our pop (soda) bottle collection (dang michigan deposits).

After being hurtled at high speed the D70 shatters upon impact with the cinder block wall. The sr-T101 makes a hole and keeps on goin'.
Short but sweet. Stick and move. Fire the shutter and feel the groove.
