After several years of digital I went back to film. I only shoot bw and digital just never looked right. So, I bought a high end scanner and am content. I still shoot digital for work, but all of my personal work is film again.

 

If Kodak was smart they would sell a reasonably priced and very capable film scanner. We need a replacement for the Nikon 5000ED / 9000ED. In order for film to survive in the digital age we need a reasonably priced and high quality means of getting it online.

Hi! I would like to join in on this forum, but I. cannot work out how to create an entry and include photos.  I have had an M8 for several years and I purchased a 1935 Leica II at auction which turned out to need complete renovation.  I have just put the first B&W film through the camera and it appears to be working well.  

 

Advice on how to join in would be appreciated.

 

Best regards

Dennis Simpson

A macro from France last year, hoping that this might lure Henry back.

One of my pieces from my recent exhibit has found its way to the lobby the office building at 276 Fifth Avenue in NYC.  It is 72"x48" and looks stunning!   :)  Please stop by and let them know how great it looks and how they need more like this in the lobby if you are in the neighborhood!  I am working on that myself! :)

NB: I think the photo is hung about 6" too high but the architect of the building who is leading the renovation didn't listen to me  :angry:

"6 inches", you say. No wonder the architect didn't listen (I'm guessing a female architect at that), They know too well the exaggeration of (some) photographers boasting about the size of their equipment, especially the telephoto.

As far as I can tell, seen here first: Tmax3200 in Minox subminiature.

 

My favorite model working on performance of "sit." I expressed that we need to work on level of enthusiasm shown. She will get there.

 

Shot at dawn @ 1600.

Oh, yes! The IIIg loaded with ADOX, most appropriately, to give us that 1950’s look! So artistically on point. Now, if only your street model could give us the recombinant DNA key to reproduce ADOX like rabbits! Good show, Adam. This series is oddly so energized and poignant at the same time. Love your controlled shallow DOF in many of your shots. And the verticals are vertical. So subliminal.

The building architect should listen to you. The average height of American women is 64 inches, while the average height for American men is 69 inches, so let’s call it a reasonable average of 66 inches, though slightly less when we are talking about “eye level.“ The center of the 72-inch photograph should be hung for viewing at eye level. This means that the bottom of your hung photograph should be 30 inches from the floor, not 36 inches as it appears in your installation photograph, so you are correct in calling for the installation to be 6 inches lower. The architect chose 36 inches because the marble (baseboard) is about 18 inches high, so the architect simply doubled the distance of 18 inches to determine the bottom of the installed photograph, giving an “architecturally balanced look.” The architect may have been persuaded by the height of the marble banister possibly obstructing the view of your photograph as it is approached from the left, giving visitors the best approach view from that side. Whatever! It is an awesome work of photographic art and you can be justly proud of the validation. Next, the architect needs to validate an A. Miller blur, exhibited to be viewed at a distance and up close.

.. if it was an exhibition, we could think about your arguments ..
In this case here, I prefer the solution of the architect ..
