I got my prints yesterday and had a quick look. Great work everyone! I'll take a longer look today when I have some time set aside.
Thanks Darr for organizing another wonderful print exchange!
I'll try the pasting to Word. If that works for me that's what I'll do next year.
I'm not sure of the best way to make use of this press I have with the broken temperature control. I might in fact be able to fix it, but I don't have time to print as it is. If I wait until I have a chance to tear into it...ugh.
I need to find myself a fully functioning good condition press, even if I don't mount my own prints. I doubt I'll ever do that. There's a whole skill set involved, not stuff I'm usually good at anyway, and I have a local framer that I've worked with before that does a great job for a price low enough I'd rather just pay her and forget about it. The problem with getting a press is finding one that is still in good working order and local. Shipping on a 16x20 press is likely to cost more than the press, even if you can find someone willing and able to ship the thing. I did see one from a guy in Atlanta here on the board, but it was some monstrous size that would need a pick up truck and a strong friend or two, at least, to have picked up. The one I have handles 11x14 ok but not, I think 16x20. I'll have to start more actively keeping an eye out. A 16x20 press (the largest size I'm currently set up to print) should come up in a metro area the size of Atlanta eventually.
Sorry for being tardy. I have been running around.
Group 3 & Group 5: 3 cheers! Thanks to everyone!
The abundance of wet, silver prints is overwhelming. I feel like I am cheating printing on an inkjet printer. Alas, I may never be in a position to make wet prints again. To make matters worse, my Canon iPF5000 died on me when I tried to print for Group 3.
Scott-Keep the snow pictures coming. I miss snow.
Kav-Many thanks for hard work in your "real" job and your hard work with the 4x5. I appreciate both.
I really appreciate the rocks, water & trees from around Appalachia. I want some GPS coordinates to use on our trips to/from Boone, NC. I had no idea that there was anything photogenic in Elizabethton, TN other than the big smoke stack.
Darr-We have all said before, and we will all say it again: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I don't have the photos in front of me to thank everyone else individually. Suffice to say, "Y'all done good!"
Until next year when I will work much harder...
I can try to get you some GPS coordinates for that "blue hole" Wayne. But it's very easy to find if you know the slightest bit about the area. I'd be glad to give you text directions via PM if you like (no time now but drop me a line and I'll send when I can.) There's a little hike down steps in the hillside to the falls down there, very easy trek and very beautiful. The biggest problem is getting a chance to shoot when other people aren't cluttering it up but with some patience that's not too bad. There's another LF shot of the falls, this time standing out on the rock that forms the pool I shot that one from but looking down the other way as the water spills away, on my Flickr page - I've posted it on LFPF before in the waterfall thread a long time ago so I won't repeat here. There's actually really beautiful country up there, one of the things I miss about home. But there's no money to be made, which is why I'm in the Atlanta area.
Thanks Roger. I was kidding about GPS numbers. Written directions work best for me. I'll be in touch before our next trip.
