Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

[...]If you are taking pictures for posterity i,e, grandchildren and later then film and printing has a verifiable track record. Digital unless you transfer it onto.inpt the latest greatest format/storage then it is lost forever.[...] Alas, I have to say that I have rolls and rolls of film lost for...

Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

On the theory that one should never say never, I'll simply say I seriously doubt I will return to film [...] I'm too impatient, I want to know what I captured. In film days as soon as I finished a roll, unless I was on vacation, I took it in for one hour processing, fingers crossed that I actually ...

Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

The first thing I notice is that the article 'interviews' a single wedding photographer whose 'gimmick' is offering film based images as part of his wedding package. This obviously is not an impartial opinion or a unbiased overview of a coming trend. It actually comes across as a soft sell for his s...

What lab do you use and what is your opinion of them?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Filter forge 4

As a photographer I have never found any value in filters such as these. As a graphic artist, on the other hand, they offer unique possibilities for all kinds of uses.

Re: Swamp - Spring Knees

Behind my house, growing up, ran a brook from the reservoir to the river. It was my playground and my little sanctuary of solitude. It was also the catalyst that made me want to get a camera, just for the sole purpose of recording the wonder I found whenever I was in the woods. I never quite got to ...

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

Ernst-Ulrich Schafer just posted a link to a video interview of photographer, Jerry Uelsmann, who does image manipulation in the darkroom (think analog photoshop). I haven't made my whole way through the video but at 2:30 there is a nice quote that pertains to you, Minnie. When asked about his choic...

Re: New Years Day

I can definitely see the influence in your work. Specially in the chairs and in the ferry series.

Re: Audbree

I agree with Minnie, but then I have a fondness for B&W work to begin with. You post very distinct B&W images here but do you find that customers are looking for more traditional color work when they come to you or are they looking for your B&W's? Personally, I would love a B&W portr...

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

...There are millions of wonderfully detailed pictures of egrets and herons out there, but the ugly dam environment is the thing that makes the series different. That's not how I see it. Your compositions and use of light is what really pulls it all together. The setting is unique and really grabs ...
