Journal History



Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

How to Remove More Like This by parallellogic

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, let me not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Saint Francis of Assisi

Good to see you still active here Steven.  Looks like you've continued to have been busy taking pictures.  Tried to catch up on some of your photos, but that seems like it might take some time.

Thanks!  I've been fairly restrained the past couple of weeks since I've been posting scanned prints instead of negative scans.
Zeal-GJP Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh cool, any reason for that?  Think I saw that you develop your film, do you also do prints?
pearwood Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, as of a few weeks ago.

Hi Steve, Thanks for fave, watch and your lovely comments. They're always appreciated :)
Good luck with your new darkroom. I do darkroomprinting as well(from time to time at least). With this one i tried caffenol as a paperdeveloper. Works quite well.…

Most welcome, Nils, and thanks.  Do check out fellow caffenol afficianado rdungan1918.

Speaking of which, yes, Bob, I got your package, including the caffenol sample.  You may convert me yet.  :D

I have come to the conclusion that caffenol works best with 100 speed film.  You can certainly use it on faster film with success, but, my experience is that you have a lot of spots and other defects on the film, which you don't get on 100 speed film.  The other disadvantage is that it produces a grainer image than some other developers.  I will continue to use it on 100 speed film which is what I shoot the most.  I have been experimenting with other developers trying to find a fine grain developer for my Minolta 16Ps camera which uses 16mm film.

Thanks.  I'll try it when I finish the current roll in the Yashica-D.

I've been pleased with my results with plain, old D76.
