  1. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    Cooper is certainly a larger than life character who can tell a good story. I’ve known him since about 1970 and personally witnessed some of his better known exploits as a graduate student-I was an...

    [QUOTE=manfrominternet;1511842]



    "I wish Gursky, and Burtynsky for that matter, went back to film."

    Having been at this for decades, I would have to say that the vast majority of work done...

  5. Re: An inexpensive LED enlarger head alternative

    Great idea. I may have to work on this myself. It looks like a fun winter project.
    Maybe should be moved to the DIY forum?

    I'm very sad to hear this. He was a really good guy that made many valuable contributions to LF. RIP.

    Re: What is the market for unique LF gear?

    I helped a friend of mine's widow sell her late husband's LF gear. Some of it was homemade ULF gear. It was frankly very hard to sell, partially because she thought the gear was worth more than it...

    In that vein, I always brought in interesting speakers, mostly artists who did interesting work. I always tried to bring in a couple of people who had done great work and had made some real...
  10. Re: Interesting observation regarding Large Format on Facebook

    Yes. It's a tough question. It has always been difficult to make a living in the arts and a very rare person who can make it work at any level. I have always tried to explain it more as a passion...
  11. Re: Interesting observation regarding Large Format on Facebook

    I have taught film and LF film at the college level for a few decades. I've seen a lot of trends and been able to follow students long term interests as I make it a point to keep in touch. Yes there...

    Re: SMALL light meter suggestions

    My biggest problem with smart phone apps in a smart phone for a light meter is that in my testing they suffer from flair a lot which skews the readings. That would be a phone problem more than the...

    Re: SMALL light meter suggestions

    I like the Pocket Spot meter. Its hard to find and can be pricy but works great. I mainly use a Pentax Digital which I've used for decades, but when I want to go light or need a backup I go for the...

  19. Re: New Mexico, help with a location of ‘red sand-hills’

    Good. That whole area is interesting from a number of different angles. There is a large Chaco Outlier down that way too which looks out across the Rio Puerco at Cabezon. It’s on private land though...
  20. Re: New Mexico, help with a location of ‘red sand-hills’

    Are you talking about towards Cuba or towards Jemez from San Ysidro? Either way those don’t look like what the novel talks about in my way of thinking. Towards Jemez they are more like sandstone...
  21. Re: New Mexico, help with a location of ‘red sand-hills’

    But not those landforms mentioned in the novel as red. I know those areas like the back of my hand. Now granted I am largely a b&w photographer, but not because I am colorblind :)
  22. Re: New Mexico, help with a location of ‘red sand-hills’

    Hmmm doesn't ring a bell and I have lived here all my life. What novel? Sounds more like the Painted Desert in Arizona. There is plenty more to shoot if that doesn't pan out. Drop me a line and we...

    This show is a reboot (not rehash) of the successful show the three of us did at the Paul Paletti Gallery in Louisville last fall.
