    Fred Picker said it's easy to identify good photographers, they show you their work. They don't tell you about it. Not a quote but close.

    I suspect making emulsions and coating them falls in about the same scope of things.

    You may not have liked Fred, but I think more times than not he hit the nail on the head.

    Keep up the good work Ron.

    Yes, hang in there. I hope to have some product to scan and post within a month. Thank you for the great workshop. The group of emulsion makers will grow slowly, but steadily. There is still a lot of film and paper around. This will not always be the case.

    Cheers,
    Clarence

    Agree 100%! When you do publish, be sure to post it here.

    And don't let the jerks get to you! Take the high road and stay on it! Leave them back in the dust!

    Even though I have no plans to coat my own film (in the near future at least), I read your posts on the subject with interest. I'm glad to see someone keeping this art/science alive and admire you for persevering. At the very least I'm sure your book/video will be the starting point for others to follow. Keep up the good work.

    PE,
    I really appreciate what you're doing, and respect your sticking at it.
    I have looked at some of the old threads here, and I was quite astounded at the hostility and unprofessionalism shown by certain protagonists who seem to disregard your work as meaningless.

    The book/DVD combination will, I think, prove very useful to people who, like me, are unable to attend a workshop in another country.
    Is there any chance of getting the DVD in PAL format for us UK folks?
    Lens caps and cable releases can become invisible at will. :D

    Ben,

    Surely that depends on the origination format. i.e. if the video is originally high-def, that can be converted to NTSC or PAL without disproportionate loss. However, if the origination is standard def, the process of conversion from NTSC to PAL may negate any potential quality advantages. Most current DVD players / TVs (in the UK) will display an NTSC signal.

    Another suggestion if the video origination is high-def might be to provide an HD version to the end user...

    hope this helps,

    Tom.

    Ron,

    I, probably along with many others, am quietly reading your posts and following your work and viewing the examples you have posted. Please keep it up and put me down as another buyer once you're satisfied that your book/DVD is up to standard.

    cheers eh?

    Ron,

    "Empty drum makes loudest noise" is old Confucius saying. Your drum is very full. Keep on doing what you are doing as you are already leaving a very positive legacy.

    I'm getting tired of seeing people claim to have made emulsions and coated them but seeing no examples whatsoever. One person claims to be making ISO 400 emulsions regularly and making coatings.

    I see little evidence that anyone is doing anything but Denise Ross (Good work Denise - you deserve KUDOS for your work as do all of the others who have posted their work - you are all excluded from this, even those using off-the-shelf emulsions such as Liquid Light).

    Anyhow, I am about half way into my textbook and am about to start on the script for the DVD to go with it. I figure about 150 pages of text and 2 - 8 hours of video showing emulsion making and coating. My biggest problem is getting an OK to publish some of this.

    In any event, there are lots of outsiders claiming to do this type of work, but I have yet to see anything from anyone but Jim Browning. I don't want to copy their work. I want to know that there are others doing this work for real and are not just smoke and mirrors out there in LaLa Land. And, I want to give credit where credit is due.

    Sorry for the rant, but reviewing what some people (well two or three persons mostly) have said has caused me to post this. If you search the internet you will find some rather nasty posts over the last two to three years about my efforts.

    People here on APUG are discussing what you wish to leave behind as your legacy. This is my effort to leave something behind, my legacy if you will. It is not a set of pictures suitable for a gallery, but rather a set of emulsions for paper and film coatings and coating methods to help you make those pictures.

    Peace.

    pe -you have not only educated and inspired; but also stimulated those few who do, to tell those many who don't, what is, the real deal -

    i know htat i express the profound admiration of all who read your posts, and marvel at your prodigious output and brotherly sharing of what is the hard won fruit of your long and arduous labor of love in the orchard of photography-right on my brother

    as the imam of masjid al mush-hag habeen(the church of the troublemakers-yes it really exists) i am sure that the creator and all of creation smile on your 'troublemaking', i know i do

    my own 40 yrs experience in htis field is as that of the chef and cook-the look of joy and satisfaction on those who partake of our labor is often as important a reward as the money

    in the words of one of my many clients a long time ago : YA DID GOOD!

    peace out

    vaya con dios
