  1. Re: Which State is the Best State for Landscape Photographers to Live?

    I went to grad school in Calgary. I loved shooting in Southern Alberta.
  2. Re: Which State is the Best State for Landscape Photographers to Live?

    New Mexico. I have spent my life photographing here and have just barely scratched the surface. And............if you can't find it here or are hankering for a diversion, we are so damn close to AZ,...
  3. Re: 25th Anniversary of the Large Format Photography Forum

    Thank you for that Merg. I’m glad I was able to give something back here. Out of frustration, I know I was heavy handed at times. This forum has been an invaluable resource over the years, making LF...

    That I can’t answer till I try it. Have you tried it? My bread and butter has become large prints.

    Re: Lightbox for film scanning

    I’m planning on stitching. I need a larger file that a single capture can give me. I put too much effort into a file to not be able to print large.

    Re: Epson V700 High Resolution lens

    Agreed, but what's the likelyhood of them doing an updated/redesigned version these days? The 800/850 is already a 6 years old design.
  14. 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...

  18. 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?

    Re: What is the market for unique LF gear?

  23. 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...

    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...

  32. 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...
  33. 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...
  34. 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 :)
  35. 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...
