    I liked your photo-a-day for a year challenge better. Since I've never owned or used a digital camera (or cell/smart phone, iPod, iPad, iPoop, etc.), I have nothing to set aside for a year.

    But good luck anway!

    Will that mean that any new products on your web pages or shots from your workshops are going to be from some one else ? And your newsletters as well Good luck on your challenge.

    Hey Wahlberg,
    How's he gonna get anything done in the that hour in the darkroom if we're standing right in front of him?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    OK, so I've had a chance to plan this out a bit.

    I don't have a neg scanner or a flatbed scanner so I've decided to mount the digicam on the copy stand.
    This will allow me to make copies of any images I wish to share. I hope to get at least a couple good shots to share.

    Right now I have three film rangefinders, a 4x10 Shen-Hao and a Nikon F6... so I thought I was good to go. Then the shutter release button fell off one of the cameras so it went for service. Now the frame counter seems wrong on my M6 so I'm taking it for service tomorrow. This leaves me with a CL as my only rangefinder, and the F6.

    I shot four rolls of film this weekend so I'm off to a good start. I'll get those souped this week, make contacts and try and get something printed.

    I bought a case of paper developer, have gallons of fix already and four fresh packs of film developer. Plus 18 boxes of 4X10 film... so I should be good for a while.

    I also have a cupboard full of paper I can use.

    So I guess I'm good to start.

    Got a computer? I just bought a Canon LiDE 210 for something like $80 and it runs great with, of all things, FreeBSD, so It should be fine with Linux/Mac/Windows. You'll get much better results than photographing your prints with a digicam. That's what I did before the scanner purchase and it stunk.

    Good luck, enjoy shooting film and remember, they can live together just fine.

    I'm going to put aside the digital for a year, just shoot black and white film and make prints for the wall. I'm not sure if I can make it... but wont it be fun to try.

    And yes I still make my living through photography.

    Too much angst.

    Shoot what you enjoy.

    This is like people who have the need to constantly tell people the new diet they're on.

    Nobody cares. Do whatever you like.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
