    John,

    I'm really looking forward to it, but haven't been on APUG much lately because of a number of factors, mostly just being very busy with several projects and now school gearing back up for 3 out of 4 in the household. I'd suspect many others are in the same boat. If I can get all my chores done and a test or two run, I may be doing mostly 4x5 pinhole during the get together. Missed the camera show because I needed to work on making a plumbing access cover in the darkroom and get some film processed from a public event I shot.

    I wouldn't be much use discussing portfolios, but would be interested to hear what others have to say. I'm looking forward to seeing what you did with alt processes over the summer, and catching up with some folks whom I've missed on the last one or two go-rounds.

    Don't have anything new to contribute unless people want to see 4x6 color snapshots of the tile work in our bathrooms or some observatory construction and renovation; concrete and paint drying, etc. I haven't yet photographed the bathroom tile work, so interested folks will have to give me some advance notice.

    Lee

    Do we have any more input on building and presenting a portfolio?

    Who will have pictures to show, of what, in what media?

    Would someone be willing to make a presentation on portfolios or another photo related subject? Peter had a great one on platinum printing a couple events back. Would someone offer something they are working on?

    Is there something in the area people would like to photograph as a group, discuss as a group, make plans to accomplish? Unless the hurricane brings us some water the waterfalls will not offer much. Does anyone have any ideas what subjects might be enhanced by a dry spell?

    Talk to us. What do you want from the event? What can you contribute?

    John: I am planning to bring a selection of lith prints of the "entropy" series that I have been working on. I get a lot of valuable feedback from showing prints like these to fellow photographers and receiving constructive criticism. As I mentioned earlier, I think that a general discussion on portfolios would be beneficial. Other than that I am looking forward to some new shooting locations, and general war-story telling.

    Assuming I make it, I'm hoping to get some general help with exposures of 4x5 (bellows factor or not, etc..) and just be able to talk with adults. And maybe eat something I didn't have to cook one handed. There's a remote chance I'll have some contact sheets or work prints with me, but that's only going to happen if the munchkin decides to go to sleep early enough that I can get into the darkroom. But I'm going to be hopeful and bring cameras, too.

    It's August, John, and the only things buzzing are the bumble bees and cicadas - the zeitgeist zzz'ing away. I have found the darkroom business to be very seasonal: there is a terrific dip in sales from July through September. Maybe folks could bring their vacation Kodachromes?

    I hope to be there for the September get together - they are always very enjoyable. Who knows, I might even get into the darkroom, and damn the soporific droning of insects.

    Hey John, Eva & I can't wait to come down. We'll be bringing down a variety of new prints, including new work from 18 days in Utah. We can also bring down Andrew's books - Detroit, Cuba, Russia. Also, Eva got a new camera - Seitz Roundshot 220 VR 360 degree camera. Fun little toy.

    We're planning on making it to Andrew's show on Sunday. We're interested in maybe shooting some spots where nature has taken back from man - overgrown sites. Any suggestions would be welcome. Also, Peter took us to a beautiful courthouse last year - that would be a great place to shoot if available.

    Thanks again for having us over. We'll be camping again in our new offroad trailer.

    Thanks all. That was just the enthusiasm I needed. Let’s hear from some others. It is the buzz that keeps this interest going.

    Lee, it is always a pleasure to have you here and enjoy your contributions to the conversations and organization.

    Bethe, Hope you can make it. I have read several threads about bellows factor here and on the LF Forum. Remind me when you are here to show you two tools I have for that, one from Kodak given in a view camera course at U Akron and another from Calumet given by a local professional food photographer.

    Nick, Thanks for the soothing advice. Needed that. Get back in the darkroom.

    Dan, Thank you. You always sum things up so well. I have enjoyed your thoughts and images at Bill’s and am so glad you are bringing them here.

    Jeff, Thanks for the support. Looking forward to seeing the new toys and images. In addition to what you posted, Eva added on Facebook that she had just printed the 8x10 she took at the covered bridge.

    You all come.

    John

    I'll be sure to have her bring the print. She printed it during one of our darkroom printing parties (we have 5 enlargers now and have people over to print together) - it was very entertaining watching her try to burn in the contact print. She could probably use some pointers there!

    Wait until she sees the tiny little opening for your hands and the print frame on the uv light box for alt printing.

    What is this camping off road trailer? Sounds interesting. What makes it off road? Got a link? Have you also bought an off road towing vehicle? What I remember was a very on road, comfortable, Ford product, 4 door sedan. What has changed?

    We also have our Jeep Cherokee, which we often leave at home due to gas mileage. Here's a link to the trailer - Little Guy Teardrop. We bought it used and modified it heavily - we had an 8" lift kit built and installed for it. Also put a new lift kit on the Jeep and bigger tires, then drove the whole rig out to Utah to live in. Spent lots of time offroading in the desert, and had a blast! We'll be bringing photos and enough stories to put everyone to sleep.
