Just got an email from kodak, its not announced, but its happening. B&H still stocks it up to 4x5, as does F-11. Kodak will not be manufacturing it any more. If you like the stuff buy it.

Just a heads up.

Oh and Tri-X is also discontinued, but thats old news.

Photography at the Olympics

This is a great video for showing just how involved sports photography can be. You need a lot of skills beyond photography. Some notable points in the video:

Concentrate on your work and don't worry about what other people are doing.

Follow the rules of the venue or you risk being ejected.

Think about the big picture of storytelling of the event. Don't get hung up on one great shot.

Another thing I will add is the topic of humility. One of the photographers in the video, Lucy, is one of the most humble people I've ever met, yet she's one of the greatest sports shooters ever.

Emulsion Lift!

I've been photographing with the 4x5 and using the fuji film pull aparts this summer. So since I messed up the emulsion on the straight image I thought I'd do an emulsion lift and I was surprised to find its quite simple. I hope you like!

Gum from found slides

A little update from Maine, I have been spending the last two weeks in the "dim" lab with Brenton Hamilton learning Kallitype, Ziatype& Inkodye along with working more on Gum and Cyanotypes. this is a new project I am starting (a lot like Schlepps alt final but these negatives/ slides are all found at yard sales and antique stores) 

Technical note : this was only 3 layers blue yellow then red. This was printed on unsized fabriano artistico and on the wrong side! so imagine how little staining there will be when I print it on the right side! also this print was made in the period of 3 hours! Speed gumming has become my new thing.
