  1. Re: QT Luong's visit to the 61st national park with LF camera

    Indeed, but my 20th-century stock is becoming problematic. I opened a box of 8x10 Astia less than a year ago and cut 25 sheets, resulting in 50 5x7s. I used about two dozen to photograph Gateway Arch...
  2. QT Luong's visit to the 61st national park with LF camera

    WTTW, the Chicago area’s PBS affiliate, aired a story about my visit to Indiana Dunes National Park, where I hauled out my Canham 5x7, like I do whenever a new national park is designated. I thought...
  3. Re: Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, opens at the Getty November 15th.

    If the institution and artist thought it is desirable to provide a on-line version of an exhibit, they would have done so. Since obviously they didn't, I'd suggest it best to respect their will, esp....
  4. Re: Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, opens at the Getty November 15th.

    I take "Sold out" to mean "sold out from the publisher", not a particular store.

    You are saying that if there is demand, there will reprint, but that's not a given, there has to be enough demand...

  6. Re: Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, opens at the Getty November 15th.

    The best photography exhibit I've ever seen. Prints are considerably more impactful than the reproductions, but if you cannot attend, the book includes all artwork on display plus (too?) many essays...

  8. Re: My Artist-in-residence in Zion this past April

    According to NPS numbers as used by my methodology, Zion is the 7th most crowded national park: https://www.terragalleria.com/blog/the-less-crowded-national-parks-by-the-numbers/

    Congratulations on winning the AIR and thank you for the report. I am curious to know on which figures you rely for the statement "Zion is the second busiest park in the country"?

  13. Re: Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    Fortunately, the consequences of using expired film are not as severe as playing...
  14. Re: Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    All good points. The main reason I saved money was that it was bought as expired, cold-stored film (from Freestyle is I remember) for about 20% of retail.
  15. Re: Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    What was repeatable was that unopened, frozen film gave good results regarding of film expiration date so far.
  16. Re: Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    When you have used several hundreds sheets of film with repeatable results, it is more than chance.

  17. Re: Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    In the post, I wrote that after taking out the film in 2013, I put it back in the freezer. Yet, there was quality loss compared to the film which was never taken out of the freezer and never opened.
  18. Results with long expired transparency film + America's 60th national park

    I still use Fuji Astia stock that expired in the last century (1999!). In 2013, I opened a box and cut film to photograph Pinnacles National Park. The exposures I made were just fine, and I put the...
