Thread: Anyone Processing B&W 4x5 in New Orleans?

  1. #1

    Anyone Processing B&W 4x5 in New Orleans?

    I'm a photographer teaching in New Orleans for the next month, lacking access to a darkroom to process my 4x5 black and white negatives. Thus, I'm looking for a photographer/student with darkroom access and experience who would be willing to process my 4x5 negatives for pay.

    I'm also willing to compensate with prints and/or help with photography knowledge, equipment, etc.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Re: Anyone Processing B&W 4x5 in New Orleans?

    Hello Thom,
    Sorry to jump on this thread, but you guys are talking about large format in New Orleans. My wife and I are planning a road trip from Memphis to New Orleans in the Spring. I'm hoping that I'll have the TravelWide by then but I'm also planning on brining along my 5x7/4x5 Wisner. Can you give me any ideas about where to shoot large format in and around New Orleans?

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Larry, there's plenty to photograph in New Orleans! If you like architecture there's the French Quarter and the Garden District (traditional New Orleans homes), if you like people there's the French Quarter, the Marigny and the Bywater (lots of characters), if you like landscape there's City Park or Audubon Park or the cemeteries (above ground crypts) as well as the surrounding swamps. When your trip gets closer PM me and let me know what you are looking for and I'll help as best I can.

    I'm going to be close to Memphis next week. I have some palladium prints in a show at the Delta Arts Alliance in Cleveland, MS.

    I'll have to check that out in Cleveland. I'm close. How long will the prints be shown?

    Greg, The exhibit is at the Delta Arts Alliance and opens Thursday, JAN 16. There's no mention of it on their website but here's an excerpt from the local paper. Of course, they spelled my name wrong. I'm driving up tomorrow; hope you can make it!

    Adding to the programs offered at the DAA, there would also be an exhibit opening on Jan. 16 at 6 p.m.

    The Antiquarian Photography Show, as curated by Euphus Ruth, featuring the work of 13 national photographers, including Ruth, S. Gayle Stevens, Judy Sherrod, Kevin Kline, Bruce Schultz, Quinn Jacobson, Sesthasik Boobchai, David Rodrique, Thomm Bennett, Ray Bidegan, Daniel Carrillo, Maude Schuyler Clay and Bill Steber.

    The show features examples of historical hand made photographic processes from the 19th century and traditional film/printing processes of the 20th century.

    "This exhibit features no digital marriage in anyway to the historical process. It is a pure analog, hand-made show featuring these processes by photographers who perform them from beginning to end, including from composition in the ground glass to the final plate or print," said Herbison.

    For more information about this series or other programs, contact Herbison and the DAA at 662-843-3344.

    Thom I didn't see the hours posted on their website. Is the gallery open on weekends?
