    Keeping on keeping on ...

    Sandy, Yep I still have a second home at North Myrtle Beach, but I'm not finding the time to use it as much as I would like!

    Dave and Whiteymorange, I have been dealing with some serious health issues for the past couple of years, but hopefully am now on the rebound. I'm presently in the middle of putting together an international bromoil show here in Richmond and building a new house. When I finish these projects (next spring) I do hope to conduct a three day weekend bromoil workshop limited to four students.

    Cheers,

    Gene

    Bromoil Workshop

    Dave Wooten asked: "Which 4?"

    Strange. I answered this with another reply and it never made it through. I'll try again.

    The first 4 to respond affirmatively and send me their deposit check after I announce the dates. I had a waiting list, but time has passed and I'm starting over. It will most likely be in mid April. Stay tuned ... and in touch! Cheers, Gene

    Although I never met Norman, I used to see him when I went to the opening nights of the annual exhibition held by the Eastbourne Photographic Society. An indication of his personality certainly comes over on his video. I attended a workshop given by Maija McDonald and would like to try more. I am impressed by yours, particularly the use of Agfa Multi-contrast Classic paper.

    Roy - Maija is a very good personal friend of mine. Quite a lady! I have spent time with she and Jack at their home in Malvern and they visited us here in Virginia a few years ago. Cheers, Gene

    Just to revive this thread - and I am wondering that, myself. I just joined APUG and am thrilled to see a discussion of bromoil printmaking. I am basically self-taught (with the aid of Gene Laughter's book and video) and would love to attend a workshop.

    I've used Agfa MC 118 almost exclusively (my favorite hand coloring paper, as well). I'm reading conflicting things about Agfa these days, and wonder if there will be an issue getting this paper in the future. It does so many things, so well.

    What are other good paper choices? I'm not sure I'm brave enough yet to try the liquid emulsion route.

    terri,
    I also used the Agfa 118 quite a bit for Bromoil, but switched to Lewis Bromoil Paper and liked it a lot better.
    The photo formulary sells it - www.photoformulary.com or you can buy it direct from David Lewis at www.bromoil.com
    Regards,
    Tom

    As far as I know, Agfa paper is gone. There may be some boxes of paper that are still around, but once its gone its gone. JandC sells bromoprint. I'm new to bromoil, but I've gotten pretty good results from it. I haven't tried David Lewis' paper so I can't comment on it.

    Thanks, Travis & Tom.

    Wow. Didn't know it was that close to the end of the line for the paper. I still have some, but guess it will be best used for comparing to other papers now.

    I will doubtless be trying the Lewis paper next. I'll have to have a moment of silence and maybe light a candle first, though. The Agfa 118 has been my best friend for years.
