  1. I am pondering this...

    by , 01-11-2009 at 04:42 AM
    So, I am trying to come u with ideas for photographic assignments for myself to do. If anybody wants to give me a suggestion they should give one, but here is what i have thought about so far:

    Putting my camera on self timer and, as the timer runs down, i throw a large paper plane into the frame of the image, a bit of a chance image type-thingermagigger.

    still thinking. As with my creative writing stuff, every time I sit down to write a blog I get writer's block. ...
  2. There Are Five Sorts Of Photographers . . . or . . . Accosted By The Idiot Masses

    by , 01-09-2009 at 10:37 PM
    Well. I'll start with the five sorts of photographers.

    1. Anti-digital Photographer. 'If it ain't silver then it is an abomination and should be purged at the alters of AA, Weston and Bresson.'

    2. Film Photographer. 'Well, I use film because it is what I have always used. Sure digital has its place in my workflow. However I prefer to use film.'

    3. Non-specific Photographer. 'I have a Nikon N65 and a Nikon D40. I could be found with either raised ...
  3. More adventures in collecting

    by , 01-05-2009 at 10:22 AM
    Well, my vintage collection is growing, slowly but surely. This weekend I was outside of Philadelphia with my parents to go see the Barnes Collection and do a little antiquing. I found a nice little tintype not in a case or any other kind of mount, but it featured a young man in some kind of working outfit, outdoors on the stump of a tree. The unusual circumstance of the man sitting on the stump outdoors drew me to it, as the vast majority of tintypes show sitters in a studio, in a very formal circumstance ...
  4. Photo Exhibit reviews

    by , 01-05-2009 at 10:11 AM
    Over the New Year's holiday, I took some time on New Years' Day to indulge in an annual tradition I keep - spending a few hours touring exhibits at the Smithsonian. This year, I took in five different photography shows at the National Portrait Gallery - Portraits by Matthew Brady, The Photograph as Jewelry, The Mask of Lincoln, Women in Photographs, and a display of contemporary work in the collection.

    The Brady Portraits were fascinating - almost all of them were carte de visite ...
  5. My thoughts on my new hobby

    by , 01-03-2009 at 11:51 PM
    I have not been this excited about one of my hobbies for a long time (and I have a lot of hobbies). I find myself sitting for hours trying to find equipment, reading all of the posts here and searching every photography site I can find!

    I have nearly gotten everything I need for my darkroom, except the room, but I can set it up anywhere that I can make light proof for the time being and the supplies wich i will have to order soon. I can't wait seeing that first print that I develop ...
