My New Year's Resolution

My New Year's Resolution posted by rannestad January 03, 2012 04:38AM reply | quote

Last summer I went to Tanzania and brought a 4x5" sheet film camera along. About 100 images were shot. Now I have started to develop the negatives which will be printed as palladiotypes.

I will document the process on retrofoto.dk. Hopefully I will compile the images into a Blurb book in 6-12 months.

And my New Year's Resolution is just that: Get the development done. It takes a lot of time:)

Have a nice day.

Bjorn

Bjorn, Happy New Year.100 sheets , that's 10 boxes + chemicals + time , you could of bought a perfectly good digital camera for that amount :) . Keep up the good work. tony.

PS Had a dream the other night I was back in a Darkroom , Spent 1000s of hours in darkrooms. Come to think of it , it was more of a nightmare.:)

Thank you all of you. It's a long project, but I like it.

I am sorry that you had a nightmare about darkroom. I guess you have been doing that for years, so I kind of understand you. I am in the opposite situation. I did some darkroom 15 years ago, but not so much I got tired of it. Then 15 years after I got hooked. I love it.

Have a nice day.

Bjorn

Bjorn for close to 10 years I was a Cibachrome Printer & an E6 technician. On a step ladder in total darkness hanging 3 meter lengths paper against a wall , holding it in place with magnets then projecting onto it with a 10x8 Durst , then feeding it into a 52" Kreonite processor. All done in total darkness. Yes , I was glad to get on the other end of the process. ie. Taking the shots , where I did my initial training as a photographic assistant. But I must agree with you there is magic in a B&W darkroom. I envy your enthusiasm. I wish I still had that passion.tony

I totally understand why you aren't so eager after coming in the darkroom again? Since I don't have that background I love going in the darkroom. Did you see rumors about Kodak bankrupcy? Not good... But it is great that there are several other analog film manufacturers out there.

Can't wait to see (more of) the results Bjorn.

I envy you your dedication. Something I'm having trouble finding these days....
