    One thing, Lenn. Black and white lends itself to showing off contrast. Like the scrimshaw I used to do, I was once told that the more lines there were in the etching, the more attention getting it would be. You lack color in B&W photography and color really catches your eye so you have to compensate with creative composition and angles and do not be afraid to use filters or decrease exposure and push process to attain some contrast every once in a while.
    Thank you.

    Darkroom update

    Thanks one and all for the welcome!

    Spent a good amount of yesterday in my darkroom, and finally came away with one print I liked. Basically I liked it because it turned out - sort of. Found out my safe light leaked, so did some printing, then developed totally in the dark. Good thing my darkroom is small...

    But with totall darkness, I didn't get the paper centered in the easel, and the print that somewhat turned out was crooked.

    Spent today fixing things that went bump yesterday, and expect to try again tonight.

    All in all, had a remarkably fun day, and can't wait to get back.

    Christopher, I'm slowly coming to grips with the creative side, but am still trying to figure out the basics before I play with filtration on the enlarger. For example, I still am trying to figure out how much distance there should be on my Beseler 45 between the light source and the neg carrier...

    Thanks again for the welcome!

    Hi Lenn,

    If you have a chance to come to the city, stop by our studio/gallery.

    Right now, we are showing collotype exhibition at our gallery featuring work of George Tice, Emmet Gowin, Koichiro Kurita and many otheres.

    There will be many events coming this spring such as lectures, movie night, and night for emerging photographers where they are given an opportunity to present their body of work.

    Regardless of your involvement in photography, there should be some events you will be able to participate at our studio.

    Hope to see you in person.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi
