As student of Art History, and a practicing religious person, I was devastated by the Fire at Notre Dame. No, I’m not Catholic, but I revere ALL sacred places of ALL Religions.
I’m not at home, so I don’t have much that I can post at this moment. But I Love Gothic Architecture. When I had a chance to live in England, I visited all the famous Cathedrals that I could get to during my short stay. So I post a Quiet Tribute from Wells Cathedral. A gem that you should try to see if you are in western England
And what I am going to do this summer is scan all of my best English Cathedral images (Old ECN-II Transparencies) and Post Them!
I have posted this on Twitter. But I wanted to give my followers here a chance at answering this question too. In the future I will write an ‘article’ here on my feelings and the results of my survey. Here it is:
How many films is it really possible to be an expert at using?
While here in Arizona, I’ve been testing various films that I hadn’t used before (e.g. Silberra, Ilford FP4, the new Kodak E100), In most cases for B&W I use Kodak T-MAX 400 and Ilford SFX-200; for color I’ve settled on Kodak Portra 400 (pending my results for E100). I know these films well, and I usually get the expected results. When I experiment with new films, the results are up in the air. Yes with my ‘expert’ films I made early mistakes but worked through it. Now I wonder if it is worth the the time to learn about MORE films or stick with what works? So let me restate the question:
What films do you use and how many do you feel it is possible to be an expert with? Please leave a comment or vote on Twitter @AnalogPhotoBug, and look for the future article.
As you read this post I will already have been in surgery for several hours………..
In keeping with my earlier Baseball Reference, we move on to the famous Knuckle Ball Pitch. As you read this I will be entering a second round of surgery. The first was successful as far as it went. But the location and geometry of the Tumor require a second entry point on the side of my head behind the left eye.
