    Re: A Failure of Vision

    During the large format learning phase. A "google search" of any large format related question will invariably generate hit with a discussion thread from this website. That can range from how to fix a packard shutter to information on a antique lens. This is one of the only places to engage on topics of this nature. I don't know of a single person in my area the shoots large format and prints in a darkroom.

    It can take years reading these threads and getting your ducks in a row to feel in a position to contribute value to the conversation. There are threads like Gali style and soft focus landscapes that are unique discussions. I was reading yesterday Emil Schmidt lenses and their personalities with great interest.

    Buying and selling is part of the fun. I feel we would like to sell to within our community to members who use equipment. It is not a good feeling to see something sold with good intentions only to see it for resale elsewhere at an inflated value without every being used.

    Anyways I find the forum amazing and gravitate to the sections that interest most.

    Thank you to all of the regular posters - you reach many more of us than you know.

    Randy, we don't "Pre" visualize and Ansel did not either.

    St Ansel may not have, I am not trying to emulate him.

    I do 'see' my desired image before I shoot it.

    I may fail in obtaining my previsualization, but that's simply a learning experience.

    Please, not another anal semantic discussion about "previsualization"!

    The sun never sets on those kinds of discussions!

    Previsualization was a Minor activity, wasn't it? White.

    I understand it as a process, not just a Minor activity, with mental activity before and after the actual moment of visualization.

    Hell, no. I lived in Eureka (CA) for too many years -- so glad to be out of that town!

    I hope you took Archimedes with you.

    He was very tired.
