Technique--especially the use of movements. If anyone else uses a darkroom then I would like to discuss printing techniques. Also would like to find new places to shoot.
Landscape, night, very occasional portrait. My night shots are mostly old buildings and industrial settings. Daytime work is primarily concerned with light, so I like dusk.
Primarily B&W, but have just made my first color transparency. My favorite B&W film is Fuji Acros, but I also use TMax. For color, so far only Fuji 64T.
I scan solely for the purpose of sharing images. I have rudimentary, at best, Photoshop skills. I have a darkroom at home. I use fiber-based paper and split contrast f-stop printing. Basic Kodak chemicals.
Linhof Master Technika; Cambo Wide DS w/47mm lens; Deardorff 8x10; Arca-Swiss 8x10
I shoot 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10. Passable portraits and night shots, crummy landscapes.
