  1. The Dark At The End Of The Tunnel

    by , 02-10-2008 at 08:41 PM
    Well, it's not too far away at all now. I can see the light, make that dark, at the end of the tunnel. My revolving darkroom door goes in on Wednesday. That in itself means that I need to have everything large in the room beforehand, and that includes the table and the enlarger. I've had a larger sink installed and had the exhaust fan replaced and reconnected. I've put up a cover for the skylight and a baffle for the exhaust fan. I'm making a light-proof removeable cover for the downlight, ...

  3. A touch of history

    by , 02-02-2008 at 08:13 AM
    How did it happen that I am about to buy a camera from 1935. In this age of digital everything, why do I even consider a camera that old. The camera that I am looking at is an old danish design. It is a NORKA (Nordisk Kamerafabrik) multi camera. It will let me take multiple pictures on the same sheet of paper or plate (see picture). As the seller puts it the camera is supposed to work but might need some TLC. This makes me wonder if it will set my 20x24" camera project back or if it be a further ...

  4. Blogging again?

    , 01-22-2008 at 03:44 PM
    I was never too good at updating the blog under the previous system - in fact I believe it only ever came to two entries. But that's no reason not to try again, is it?

    I've been in the darkroom again today. As I suspected i had put off cleaning up the last time I was there, and had ended up going offshore for a week in the interim. It's amazing how hard solidified print developer can get, and how long it takes to get it out of the tray.

    I have a lot of negatives ...
  5. Turning to 3D

    by , 01-22-2008 at 03:42 AM
    Yesterday I had help from a savy 3D CAD teacher. With his help, we have turned some of my ideas into 3D drawings. It is an interesting process. I feel that I have e good spacial feel for how things look and work, but seeing something in 3D on a monitor is very different. We set off to just get something into 3D and not look at if it will work or not. We had to start somewhere and we decided to start with a contact printing frame. The software package he uses allows for making cuts between to pieces ...
