    Kurtdriver - I'l bring a 4x5 (I'm using 8x10), a tripod and a few lenses. Is your friend set up with film and holders? (I smell Rocko burgers in my near future).

    I've got film for him, but not holders, I bought four more this afternoon, but they probably won't be here by then. I haven't heard back from him, so I don't know if he'll be there. Very kind of you, btw. Kurt

    aporodagon, my friend will be unable to make it, so don't bring stuff on his account. Mind you, we might conscript someone from the White Spot.

    Edit: My film holders arrived the other day and look great.

    Well, it was really nice meeting some new faces! And, we had great weather! We ended up shooting inside the Stave Lake power house out near Mission. Afterwards, we explored further up Stave Lake, but there were too many rednecks roaring around in the 4x4's... I'll definately head back there on a weekday as it as potential.
    We capped off the day at Rocko's Diner for burgers. Can't beat a Rocko burger!
    Be sure to share your images here when you get a chance. Hopefully we can do it again real soon.

    Re: Lower Mainland Large Format Gathering

    No images have been posted yet from our meet at the old power station on Stave Lake, so here are a couple of mine...

    The one on the left is a carbon transfer print and was shot on 8x10 xray. The print is made from a digital negative, as there was just too much perspective correction needed (I wanted the draining water to run vertical).
    The image on the right was exposed on two sheets of TMY-2. I plan on making a carbon transfer print with these two, as you see them, as well.
    Hopefully the other participants will put some images up...

    Wow Andrew, those, especially the second, are amazing. Frankly my mind just doesn't work that way.

    I made two that day, the second was mis-framed, literally banging my head into some object or the other trying to get back a few more inches for the 210mm lens, (on 4x5). The first one's below. Still getting the hang of looking at things upside down and backwards.



    Ektar 100 through a 210mm Symmar-S 5.6

    We should make this a monthly affair.

    My contribution from the get together at the powerhouse/museum. First, big green set of pipes to direct the water over the turbines (8x10 TMY2), second, detail from a hatch (8x10 TMY2) and third, a colour overview (4x5 Portra 160) of the facility. Forgot to take a picture of Rocko's (mmmmm Rocko's). Andy, thanks for picking up the tab for the entrance fee - my turn next (or Timmies, whichever comes first).
