  1. Demo recap

    by , 04-03-2009 at 10:24 AM
    Well, it went quite well overall. VisArts has a decent wet darkroom, with enough space to process even fairly large silver prints (maybe 5,6 enlarging workstations, and a 12' or so sink). There were a dozen or so folks in attendance, and the interest level was high. We only had time for one print, but we came pretty close to correct exposure given that we had to guesstimate the time - they had their own lightsource which had BL bulbs, not the BLB bulbs I have in my unit at home. I think the finished ...

  2. Platinum/Palladium printing demo tonight

    by , 04-02-2009 at 10:06 AM
    I've been invited to do a platinum/palladium printing demo tonight at the Large Format club gathering at the VisArts center in Rockville. It's just a quick demo, not a full-on class, but still, it's something.

  3. Shaking things up a bit

    by , 03-05-2009 at 12:56 PM
    Well, now that I've gone and offloaded all my 35mm SLR stuff to fill out the Contax G2 kit, I'm thinking it might well be a good time to just take a break from all my large format shooting. I've been feeling a bit of creative blockage working with the big beasts lately, so maybe it's a good time to get funky with the little stuff and shoot more freehand. I'm definitely due for a vacation, and doing a bit more "street" type work with the rangefinder might be a good prescription to cure ...

  4. Out with the old toys, in with the new...

    by , 03-01-2009 at 04:32 PM
    Well, I just unloaded a whole bunch of stuff today. All my Contax SLR stuff (RX body, 85, 50, 35 and 18-35 lenses), a Samsung digital camera, and some accessories got traded in to KEH at the local camera show. They were there to buy, and did not have a sale booth set up. Most of the other dealers there had rather sad piles of mostly undesireable stuff, overpriced. As I was waiting for the KEH guy to appraise my stuff, someone else was trading in a bunch of Contax G series stuff to another dealer. ...

  5. Buying lenscaps

    by , 02-24-2009 at 05:14 PM
    Well, I just got a new lens the other day for my Contax G1 - I found a very nice 35mm f2 in the used case at the camera store, so I couldn't let it sit around being an orphan. Not that I needed the focal length, but I've heard some terrific things about that lens. Well, I went to the KEH website to find a lens shade, shade cap, and rear lens cap. Well, KEH had two of the three, so I put them in my shopping cart, then flipped over to the B&H website to see if they had the third. They did, and ...
