Terns turning in turn - or, taking a tern for the worse...

You never know what will tern up at the beach but an opportunity to tern on the humor with a tern of the phrase. Jolly good one, Phil.

A change of camera, and film Brendan?

The FP4 looks "grittier" than your usual HP5.

The M4-P is a bit of a change, I wasn't using it much over the last year but have been out shooting with it quite a bit recently.  I just bought a 100ft roll of FP4, and intend to shoot that as my main film for the summer.  I'm guessing the grit comes from using HC110 instead of my usual D76.

While I seem to have settled (for now) on Delta 100 and R09, it is what I have after all, I did use some FP4+ in R09,and was very impressed with the results. Possibly a tad contrasty looking, and it was M/F through the SWC, but the negs had that wow look about them.

I have some DD-X developer, but have yet to try it, thinking I'll use up all my R09 before switching.

I have only used one bottle of DDX but I was pretty happy with the results that it gave with HP5 and Tri-X.  I'm considering getting a bulk roll of Delta 100 at the end of the summer as it is a film that I don't have much experience with.   I'll probably get another 100ft roll of FP4 at the same time, as I've been very happy with my results especially for landscapes.  Generally I prefer to develop it in D76, but due to being in the middle of moving right now I'm using HC110 for the convenience.

Thanks sincerely Adam. How did your show finish up? That could only have been an all-round wonderful experience? To think that X number of lucky people from all over will have one of your sensational prints hanging on their walls - how satisfying must that feel?

Hey Phil - So yes, thanks for asking, my exhibit is sadly coming to an end tomorrow. :(  It was an interesting yet very exhausting experience as I really hustled my ass off.  Over the last 7 weeks I cleared about $18,000 in sales and my giant plexi-mounted and smaller "dye-sublimation" metal pieces ended up in a number of interesting places, including the lobby of an office building on 5th avenue, the office of a CEO of one of the largest private investment firms in the world, a sales office for an in-construction 60+-story luxury condominium right on the water on the Brooklyn side just south of the Brooklyn Bridge, homes on 5th Avenue, to Boston, to California, to London and beyond.   I met a ton of people from all over the world and got some good engagement for the time being.  I'm sure it will fade away, though, if I don't step up my game with a well-thought-out marketing strategy.  I am looking into this very seriously as I think it is supremely important.  

 

Here are some crappy iPhone pics of a few of my pieces hanging in the soon-to-be-opened (and still under construction) sales office of the "Quay" ultra-luxury residential building along the East River in Brooklyn.  The reason I was there that day was that the owner of the project realized that they loved the pieces so much that they want them bigger, so I am swapping the 25x25s for 40x40s and the 36x45 for a 48x60 (I was there taking measurements to see how big they could be made for the space), and doing the coordination of procurement of Fuji Flex prints from Germany and getting them mounted by my guy in Brooklyn and delivered in about a 10 days in time for the opening of the sales office next week.  

 

All in all, it was a very satisfying experience, and my big takeaway is that there is really nothing quite like having your work seen in person. :)

Ernest - you're a poet!

(Even if you didn't know it!).

 

Thank you so much Adam for that thorough description of your exhibition experience. Congratulations on the sales! Not a bad return, money-wise, but I'm sure the exposure it got you, as well as a few contacts and ideas for further marketing, is worth even more. So glad that you are looking at it as a serious concern. Adam Miller gallery on fifth avenue sounds pretty good...
