As I was reading Carl's wonderful advice it dawned on me he is now offering his hand coated palladium prints at substancial discount from his gallerie prices. If you wish to see the prints offered go to:
I particularly like Ohio river sunrise and welcome the opportunity to purchase this image at this prices!
If you wish to see more of Carl's work you can visit Bostick & Sullivan at:
There you will find wonderful images made by the Ziatype process which he and Richard Sullivan have pioneered.
Thanks for the plug . The point of the Collector Offer at PHOTO Techniques of course is to make prints available for much less than the normal price of limited editions just to get alternate process prints out to a wider audience. Very much in hopes that people will take up these beautiful processes themselves, though of course I wouldn't mind if a lot of folks became full-scale collectors.
A huge number of my pictures are available on my own web site: http://www.home.earthlink.net/~cweese/
You should be able to go back and edit your post to get rid of whatever tag created the strikethrough.
I was intrigued by your flatland series. I restarted photography in ernest while living in South Dakota, and it was an early goal of mine to capture on film the 'space' there. I never found a satisfying philosophy for my work there, though, and I ended up with a bunch of random work. I like your use of 7x17 shots a lot--the panoramic format is great for rendering the 'wideness' of the prairies. And your simple compositions bring out the space more than having complex subjects in the frame, like my shots with barns and abandoned houses.
No need to thank me I think is a service to our memebership to make them aware of these opportunities. Another very valuable rol these prints play is to teach us how a well exposed well printed piece should look like.
When I was learning how to print in pt/pd I took apart the frame from one of the prints I had purchased and looked closely at how it was printed, the texture of the paper, the step tablet densities, etc. It was invaluable help.
I remember thinking I was a pretty hot darkroom printer, and then I went and saw a show with Paul Caponigro prints, well that disabused me of my beleif right there, I knew I had plenty more to learn. So the ability to have an original print made by some one with many years of experience I think is an excellent learning tool.
Thanks for the comments on the Flatlands series. I made those back in 1999 on my way out to teach a workshop at Formulary in Montana. I was back in SD, WY, and MT this summer on another project and wanted to add to the Flatlands work, but weather and climate were completely uncooperative. Skies smoky and hazy and blank, drought-stricken land harsh and dessicated looking. Not one new negative. Makes you all the more appreciative of the times when everything goes right and you can't seem to turn around without finding something to shoot.
