  1. Bringing it all In

    by , 12-31-2008 at 03:43 AM
    Happy New Years all.
    I just returned from a road trip from my hometown LA to San Francisco, the scenic route. I saw wonderful sights and reconnected with my father, despite the fact that we still share a home. Along for the ride was my trusty 35mm camera and several rolls of film, all black and white (and some IR ) Well, I have returned! And in my house I find that I have become as addicted to APUG as I used to be to Facebook. Who knew? It's been a great past few weeks, and a good year ...
  2. Help Me Out with my Zone 6 Enlarger

    by , 12-22-2008 at 09:57 AM
    I am setting up a darkroom in my home, and putting back together my Zone 6 enlarger purchased back in 1993 or thereabouts. I used it for years, and enjoyed it, but after we moved back to the states had no where to set up.

    Now I find that the rotating handle that is suppossed to move the enlarger head up and down is turning without engaging. As a result, the head does not move. Could i be missing a piece?

    I have two businesses on board. One is providing a discount for film dev and the other is printing 1,000 business cards for free.

    I have received an email from a girl in the Philippines who wants ...

  5. Chris's Photographic Rule Number 8

    by , 12-04-2008 at 06:36 PM
    To not run the risk of giving this one away I will post the rule in the middle of this blog.

    I was trying to come up with a cover image for the January issue of Creative Image Maker. We turn one on January 15th so I wanted a photograph with a single candle lit. SO on the way home I purchase a small pack of birthday candles from the pharmacy in town. I get home and set up in my darkroom which doubles as the downstairs half bath, pungent at all hours. I lean my california edition ...
