    This could be a VERY stupid question, but in reviewing "Finely Focused", I see this reference to the .1 ND filter for the film speed test. Was this filter supplied originally with the book? I am stumped on this. I can't seem to find any other way to get one.

    But, thank you so much for making this available. I really enjoy Bruce's writing style and the content is opening up for me so much that was still foggy from other readings. As a beginner, I find his sweet spot of attending to the required science while constantly pursuing the artistic to be just where I'd like to land.

    Appreciate your spreading the word. I plan to send you a check for "More Finely Focused" CD, assuming that one is still available?

The book started as a workshop hand out and slowly grew from there. The workshop book was 27 pages. Bruce then decided to expand the book which was around 100 pages. As life went on he worked on the book and it was expanded to over 300 pages with photos added. When he handed me the sleeve of CD’s he stated he did something he swore he would never do. He wrote the “More Finely Focused” this book is only 150 pages and it more geared towards digital and has a section on color in it. So here I sit with all these “Finely Focused” CD’s that were to be used as hand out at workshops as to Bruce’s wishes, can’t do it due to the current state of the world.

    This month a year ago Bruce ask that I come to Maine and take apart his darkroom and round up his photo equipment and bring it back to Vermont to be donated to The Vermont Center of Photography. I was to travel up the Maine with another friend of Bruce’s and meet up with third friend and we would go see Bruce. This was to happen in June. It never happened Bruce got up from his desk one day and fell over dead. The equipment was never donated to Vermont Center of Photography.

    When I saw the reposting of this post I knew that two of Bruce’s dying wished were not met. The first was to get the book “Finely Focused” into the hands of photographers; the second was the donation to Vermont Center of Photography. As a way of making both of his wishes happen I will send a copy of “Finely Focused” Or “More Finely Focused” to anyone that wants one. I only have a limited supply of the “More Finely Focused” Cds. All I ask is that you send a check to me written out to the Vermont Center of Photography for a donation of $25 or more and I will send you a copy. No Pay Pal or Credit cards.
