    Pete -

    Here's your chance! Denise has two classes scheduled at the Photographers Formulary this year. Hancrafted Silver Gelatin Paper" will be from June 13-18, 2010, and "Beginning Dry Plate Photography" from Aug. 29 - Sept. 3, 2010.

    See the following post for more info:

    Thank you very much, Peter. Mostly, I'm just having a really great time. Emulsion making is perfect for the kind of folks who are sad to see the last page of a good mystery novel, or place the last piece in a big puzzle. There's enough here for a lifetime of fun and discovery. I hope you decide to give it another try. Despite the impression that one sometimes gets on this forum, the basics are far easier than a lot of other 'alternative' processes, yet the potential for going either broad or deep is essentially limitless. Artisan silver gelatin is a rare opportunity to make a mark in the otherwise extreme saturation and competition that is today's photography.

    And, if anyone here is considering taking the Formulary emulsion workshops but feels a little intimidated by the (tiny) bit of chemistry involved, Kirk will be helping teach that aspect. Kirk knows his stuff, but even better, he has the gift of making darkroom chemistry very easy to understand.

    Tom, your recent experiences do sound like an incredible adventure. I am in complete agreement about the liberation of a good RF film camera. I hope you share the final outcome, and I have to hope that one of the handmade printing processes is part of your vision!

    Hi All,

    If anyone is in the Washington, D.C. area in August, I'll have three prints in Scott Davis' (TheFlyingCamera) gallery, Art Reactor (http://artreactor.org/). Scott is curating a show featuring the Whole Plate format (6.5 x 8.5 inches). My contribution is contact prints from WP gelatin dry plates to handmade chlorobromide paper. I can't make it East to see the show. If someone here sees it, I hope they give a report. It looks like there's going to be some really nice prints and a great diversity. Kudos to Scott.

    On another note: I haven't been able to read APUG for a couple of weeks. There certainly have been some funky threads! I hardly recognize the forum .

    Has anyone besides hrst and Asarnil (beautiful plates!!) been crafting emulsions this summer?

    I'm taking a break this summer. Working on a radio telescope observatory that is targets at Jr. High and High School aged kids.

    See www.projectletha.org

    We're close to getting it online. We have the radio reciever built, the antenna installed, an internet connection, and now we need to get a server in place to get internet access to it.

    Hello to All,
    I am in the midst of a break from all "Wet Work" Instead, I am doing Hardware projects, like peristaltic pumps, tri-color cameras And studying the possibility of going to Digital Negatives. Having had several intensive conversations with practitioners of said on other forums, I am not at all convinced that there is any advantage over enlarging negatives on an enlarger. So, I may or may not upgrade my printer to current Epson professional technology.
    In September I will get back to work on emulsion making.

    Dose anyone know what the shelf life of solutions of chrome alum would be?

    Does this mean that Mary Kay ladies are coated with Silver Gelatin based emulsions?

    Kudos to you. Your three prints win the blue ribbon hands down. Lovely work.
