I wanted to share with you a short documentary on PBS about a photographer who uses traditional methods of capturing images. It truly is an amazing story. Enjoy.

Looks like fun, I want an enlarger that handles 8x10 film, and a 8x10 camera too. Love the wet processing by machine and of course, I wouldn't be a "real" photographer without the vest. I have a bunch of them.  :)

The burning and dodging and the masking, that's detailed and the real reason why his work is as beautiful and special. That's the hands on making it such an individual art.

If anyone here used to work in a darkroom and remember how much it was hands on and entertaining, there is something special about making and processing with your hands. Not that I miss yellow fingers or some of the stinky chemicals, with a short shelf life, but the personal connection to making ones works is the important part.

If anyone wondered about the Cibachrome print paper, which makes direct positives from transparencies, (so essentially he's shooting 8x10 slide film!) https://www.douglasvincent.com/ilfochrome/ Pretty nice.

Oh yeah, that was great, now back to click, click, click and editing some digital photos.  ;)

"Personal connection"......so true when I watched the documentary. The patience and attention to detail is a good reminder to us all that despite the "instant" age of digital - it takes time and patience to create something special.

Know him personally a little bit! met him a few times. Fine-Art with a large 8x10 plate camera! this is highly accepted by art-buyers, galleries, museums etc if you do what he does.
In the huge world outside stock-photography this is not that unusual. Many art-directors, ad-agencies still wants film and the larger format the better.
