Ephemeral

 

“Extract the eternal from the ephemeral.” 
~ Charles Baudelaire

 

In the Middle

 

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.” 
~ Jane Austen

 

Shadow of a Doubt

 

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
~
Friedrich Nietzsche

 

I know this is obvious for some, but it can be helpful for others. I’m not super organized. I like things neat and clean, but I’m not the type of person who likes to categorize and label things.

One things that happens once in a while is forgetting which chemical I have in the bottle. I tried to label them once, but someone got my tape out of the place and I just wrote directly on the bottle, with a marker. Doing that a lot, I ended up with a bottle that has both Developer and Fixer written on it! I don’t know what I was thinking, but I often assume I’ll remember later. Well, I don’t.

So here’s the thing:

Developer (D-76 is what I use): Has a soapy texture similar to bleach.

Fixer: Doesn’t. :)

I’m not so good in identifying by the smell, so I just put a little on my fingers to feel it. Hey! Wash your hands very well! I had an accident once and it was not pretty.

Lots of fun in the darkroom today. Lots of paper wasted too.

Those just got out of the oven. Last copies! Run! Run! :P

Square

Square cover

Hello friends!

If you, like me, love the square format, you should take a look at Andrew Gibson’s new e-book  “Square”. He presents a study and explores the possibilities of the square format photography in contrast to the traditional 35mm format. It gives valuable information and inspiration for those who admire this different approach.

Oh! And I’m in it too! :)

 

Square is the natural follow-up to Beyond Thirds. In Square, I delve deep into the mysteries of the square format. Back before digital, the only way you could use the square format (cropping excluded) was to buy a 6×6 medium format camera. Now, digital cameras have opened up the square format to anybody who doesn’t mind taking the trouble to crop their images in Photoshop. But using the square format isn’t simply a matter of cropping – there’s a lot more to it than that. The square format demands a new approach to composition. The rule-of-thirds (which readers of Beyond Thirds will know I’m not too fond of in the first place anyway) no longer applies.

Square explores the square format from the digital photographer’s perspective. It shows you how to use the square format on your camera, and how to make the most out of what I think of as the fine art photographer’s format. It’s illustrated throughout by my photos, and I’ve also interviewed the two film photographers, Matt Toynbee and Flavia Schaller, to explore their perspective on the square format.

Got the table! Darkroom is ready, but I’m not. Back hurts a lot. I’ll have to stay in bed for today, but it’s fine for me. Just started reading “A tale of Two Cities”. Let’s see.
