  1. Film Photography classes @ The Smithsonian

    by , 10-21-2008 at 01:55 PM
    I've signed up for TWO photo classes this fall at the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian museum complex has an "adult education" program called the Smithsonian Associates that sponsors a wide range of events, activities, tours and courses, including fine arts courses. They have a full darkroom for black-and-white and color, as well as limited digital services, in the education building, which is underground between the Freer Gallery and the Smithsonian Castle on the Mall.

    I've ...
  2. My Baby Brother Saves the Day and Chris's Photographic Rule No. 7

    by , 10-19-2008 at 08:47 PM
    As of 6:47 PM Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, Octoboer 18, 2008, I am officially retired as a wedding photographer. My Mom and I had our last go 'round with the bouquette and the garter. Our last mad rush through the relatives and attendants. Our final cake mashing to John Williams 'Jaws Theme'. Our last hurrah. And it could not have been a better final curtain.

    I showed up at 2:30 for the 4PM wedding of my baby brother Ron and his fiance Lyn with my wife's camera. She has ...

    • I've moved in to my shared studio
    • I bought a Rolleiflex (2.8 E, for those who must know)

    I'm finally walking like a normal person (well, most of the time, anyway- stairs can still be a challenge, especially at the end of the day). It has taken so long to get back to some semblance of normal activity; the frustration factor is rather high. Word to the wise- don't get fat, and if you ...

    Hello all,
    Some of you may not know who I am so I’d like to introduce myself. A few years back I took a wet plate coarse at John Coffers, “camp tin type”. I realized at the time there were few people supplying the wet plate community with equipment, so I decided to go for it and opened up shop. Since then I have quit my “real” job and have been supplying 19th century photographers full time. My most recent endeavor was to start a website and if you like you can check it out at blackartwoodcraft.com. ...

    For week 3 we have another war related photograph. It was the early 1940's after all. It's not your usual front lines shot but one that was much closer to home for the Americans.

    Mid World War II the town of Villisca, Iowa housed eleven hundred people. It's located ...
