Before you were old enough to come to our events Nick did a weekend of demos with one of his units. Several attendees purchased and still say good things about his products. Unfortunately I already had one from the competition before his demos took place. Nick is welcome to use the darkroom to show & tell, but will there be enough time left over for that with your two demos?
I will be glad to do a 1 on 1 shoot with you of the 7x17 sometime or set it up if folks want to see it. Usually at these events I guide people around and pick up pieces as help is needed. Dolly teaching first grade is a magnificent multitasker. I am a complete failure at it. I do one thing and then I do the next. In this case that usually means I forget something like stopping down the lens while trying to help others and waste the rather expensive sheets of film. It is now $ 9.05 a sheet and I always bracket, usually making the same mistake twice. It is also difficult for me to compose without full concentration. I will be starting a new series with the 7x17 after this event, have made a list of places I want to shoot and would love the company and the heavy lifting some time when you are available. Peter and I often go to a site together, talk about it and then shoot 8x10 alone. The guest room is available for you, no flooded tent needed. For me this isn’t the time to do it as a group thing.
I haven’t tried x-ray film. Certainly the pricing looks good.
