Yes, it's the eighth challenge, the last one before the final where the 3 remaining candidates will fight it out. And it's the one challenge I really hated to miss: Analog Photography! My comrades were quite bewildered when they were given those strange analog cameras. They were completely out of their ballpark and had to... Continue Reading →
Wet Printing at last!
Yes, I know today is the 8th Challenge of that Generation Art thing, but I have something else to tell you, something important! Generation Art will have to wait until tomorrow! I did my very first wet printing! I did announce that I'd do it some time ago already in this post, and at last,... Continue Reading →
Generation Art – The Seventh Challenge!

Going completely Analog!
Yes, the moment has come! A month ago my brother in law... ...gave me his great Omega enlarger with a boatload of stuff. He hasn't used the gear in the last 20 years, and it showed! So two weeks ago I cleaned everything up thoroughly (noting a happy bunch of fungus growing in the enlarger's... Continue Reading →
