    Re: Insurance Questions

    Homeowners insurance (in my experience) does not cover equipment used for business purposes, even with a rider. So if you sell prints you made need a dedicated policy, maybe even from a different...

  3. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    But is a discussion finished when it goes so far off on a tangent? And how does the medium (the internet) affect how you appreciate the validity of said discussion and conclusion?

    Re: An Anthology Of Silver Prints

    Maybe it's my browser, but all I see are tiny images, including the thumbnails on the right. Hard to judge anything from that, and I am not going to download to view.

    Re: dirty film / filtering liquids

    When I feel the need to filter a solution, I, too use coffee filters, but the white (bleached) ones. My logic is whatever might be left after the bleaching process is probably more benign than...
  6. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    A good photograph or piece of art should transcend the medium. All the art books I studied in school had at best mediocre reproductions of paintings, but one got the point nevertheless.

  10. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Many of your examples are of instances where the photographer really had little choice of medium, it was what was available or popular at the time. I am not sure what you mean by 70's soot and chalk...
  11. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Forgive me my ignorance of darkroom color printing, but it seems to me to be much more challenging to effectively dodge and burn than black and white. So I would surmise that making a large digital...
  12. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Sometimes the medium provides challenges and satisfaction that are unique. It is the experience of making the photograph and final print that is part of why I photograph.

    Digital or Binary is a medium by any definition of the term used in the arts.
