Re: 150 Years Later, Carleton Watkins

Back in the late 70's I met Terry Toedtemeier, photographer, curator, collector, he was collecting Carleton Watkins & William Jackson landscape work. I wish I would have. Here is a portrait of Terry taken by Stu Lvy. I took my lst wet darkroom class from Stu. Also a photo by Carleton Watkins of...

Re: Palm Frond

First I have to say that I like the fact that you explored that location with the stairs. Too often, me included, find one thing, take a shot and move on. That said, I find this image a lot stronger, subject wise, than the "Stair Fall" shot. Something about shadows that really lends that ...

Re: Irony

So I looked at the picture and started my ironic laugh because Irony... Then I said aloud, Why am I laughing? :oops: :lol:

(By the way, let's not overlook that it is a terrific stand-alone picture! Well done, Steve!)

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

Charles, I still shoot 35mm, 120, and 4x5 black and white negatives. Ilford Delta 400 in the 35mm, Ilford FP4+ for 120 and 4x5 formats. I still get my fingers wet. The processing is done in one of two Jobo processors I use. The smaller is relegated to the 35mm and 120 films, the larger to the 4x5. ...

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

In regards to burst mode... a burst is a series of consecutive shots taken in short durations. There is no difference, in my opinion, between a mechanical (camera set) burst mode and a manually created (fast finger press) burst mode other than control. I would much rather control where and when I t...

Terrific, Bob! Would you be willing to give more detail? Are you still doing B&W? Are you doing color, slides or negs? Are you shooting digital as well? Do you have a preference? Are you still doing wet darkroom work? :thumbup:

Re: Buffalo Bill Dam (1910), Cody, Wyoming

Hi Chuck, that is one cool Dam. Your last version highlights the wall of it, but the image seems flat to me. The natural light of it seems to be a darker dam holding back the light (kind of like a tunnel). An alternative might be to crop more at the bottom and then have the dam wall area darker. Ma...
