    Suzanne, fine work. It introduced me to Kolbrener's work as well, a man of rare vision.

    I would add something to the previous comments. Nolan's pursuit is encouraging not only for taking up LF photography and its processes "that take forever,", but, as he suggests, the quality of thought process and outlook which can come from this deliberative approach, not only to art but to life. I am by no means against improvements in technology that make our lives better, including those that speed things up; it is when time to think, to appreciate and employ the richness of language (spoken and written, not COBOL) in communicating with each other, to contemplate our history and discover new paths for communicating, as the poet Shelley said, profound and impassioned concepts respecting man and nature -- when these are devalued by insistence on instantaneous results, we lose something essential to our humanity, and thus to society. To have the opportunity to participate, as a young person, in such education or apprenticeships as this film portrays is something to be treasured in today's troubled times.

    I also enjoyed the thoughtful marriage of Schubert's piano trio with the visual and narrative.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My goodness. What a beautiful and articulate response. I shared this with all the participants in the film - they are grateful whenever someone GETS some of the deeper nuances of this film. I love the Shelley quote. Thanks so much for your thoughtful post. Warm regards to you!

    wow. i find it kind of dull, all the well sought angles and excessive slomos aside. kolbrener seems to be a very nice and also interesting character though. thanks for sharing. is this advertisement for the younger guy? maybe it is, and yes, maybe somebody will get interested in lf photography watching this.
    i actually doubt it. it doesnt bring anything original to the table.. just my opinion.

    a sweet film.
    The emphasis seems to be as much about survival of subject of the photography as about the transfer of method and skill. Of the few dozen photographers I know they have all used film and view cameras though not one of them makes landscape in a standard mode (even though Burke and Durand are in our notebooks)

    There doesn’t seem to be a requirement that learning piano means playing Schubert.

    Perhaps that’s because we find photography as something we grow, not some remorsefull day.

    be fortunate with the venture

    Maybe for you it "doesn't bring anything original to the table" but don't you think it still can inspire people? People who don't know about this art - especially the younger generation, which is growing up with taking pictures on their smartphones, could be introduced to lf photography like this.
    Anyways, I think it was a lovely film.
