sandy ,, I don't blame you, I wouldn't post any photos on this thread either...
I may be winding down here myself,,, ppl just don't seem to appreciate anything you do and I'm finally seeing that..
the sad part is some of these ppl I refer to had offspring
I don't understand the controversy. Why someone visits this site is based on what he/she expects to find. If I shop at a bicycle store I don't expect to get advice on a motorized bike for racing at Tour de France. If I visit APUG, I expect to find discussions on traditional photographic methods; not on how only the end result matters. For the Alt Photo forum, I don't expect to find discussions on how Corel Painter can emulate all processes. If I visit B&S forum on Carbon printing, hope to not find discussions on carbon inkjet printing. So why should I visit this site and expect to find discussions on replacing my Large Format cameras with some other format? Even though Photo.net is a one size fits all photo site, they have categories; and one does not find discussions of sensor size in the neg development section.
I hope the LF forum remains Large Format, its what I would expect to find here.
I completely understand the need for a website to have an identity. The world is homogeneous enough already. But, every serious photography site should have a forum (such as 'On Photography') that encompasses the whole of our increasingly marvelous craft.
I am away from home and can not do so, but could someone please post another image before this thread loses its interest?
I concur...I was really enjoying the work...
Here is one of my newer Black glass ambrotypes.
I think we are kindred souls so I am not surprised that you understand. And I appreciate your comments.
BTW, your site is fabulous, as I may have already mentioned in the past. I would like to do something similar for carbon transfer printing but just starting out to make something like this seems overwhelming.
