Alfred Handler, 2012

Here is Alfred Handler. Alfred and I met on the streets of San Francisco last week. I was fortunate enough to have received this voicemail from him on Wednesday morning. I cut out much of the message to preserve his privacy. The experience was totally amazing.

Mobile Apps

Anyone have a wish for a mobile app?

I would like to make an app that would be beneficial as a tool and/or reference guide whether its a matter of keeping track of your 4x5 negs or keeping notes.
Im not talking about putting lighting ratios or the zone system in app form because were supposed to know those by heart...but genuinely useful things that you could see yourself using? Id like to compile some of these in an app to build my portfolio.

A few ideas included an easy form to fill out regarding exposure settings and times for specific 4x5 negs or rolls so you can remember after the shoot. Another was shot scheduling tool for those he have to coordinate models, locations, and equipment checkouts....even an equipment checkout return reminder/notification!! (Im sure checkout would like that one).

I have a few other ideas but id like to ask those who still live, eat, and breathe photography. As you can tell i have found myself in a different medium than photography

One rule is that you cant use the app in the darkroom otherwise someone will rightfully hit you in the face. So...lets stick to one useful in the field.

Opportunity to exhibit work... Blue/Gold Ball

On Saturday March 31st, 2012, the Blue and Gold Committee and MSU will be hosting the First Annual Black Tie Event ~ The Blue and Gold Ball. 

The event is from 8pm to 12am in the Stand Union Ballrooms. 

This will be an event for both alumni and students to come together and have an spectacular night with all the proceeds raised going to the Boys and Girls club of Gallatin Valley. President Cruzado will be speaking along with our very own Coach of the Year Mr. Rob Ash. 

Along with silent auction items, the Blue and Gold Committee would like to exhibit the art and photography created by MSU Students. The goal is to have displays of students' work extending from the Ballrooms to Leigh Lounge. 

If students want to apply for their art to be on display (and they could possibly sell their art!!) the following is needed:
  • Photograph of the Student
  • Name, Age, Major, and Year the student is
  • Pictures/Samples of their work
For more information please contact Michael Edwards at

Here is a link to the Facebook Page for the Blue and Gold Ball.
