Photography, Part 3


Well, this is the last of the photography journal trilogy. This is my little haven to make contact sheets and enlargements. Nothing fancy, yet it seems like magic what you can do. I only recently learned how to do all this, so maybe that's why I take nothing for granted and it all seems so wild. And I feel a kinship with all those that practiced this trade for decades before me. I know it sounds hokey. But I know Ansel Adams dealt with the same process, and legions of photojournalists and other artists. I'll never be in their league but I'll appreciate their work more. And the medical community better not find that these chemicals are carcinogenic.

Great post and I enjoyed reading it. Wonderful drawing of where the magic happens. I follow alomg here and there but don't think I've left a comment before.

I made a comment and then a notice popped up saying it was already done--which was strange as I hadn't done it yet---go figure...I sure liked all the cool photos and the excellent sketch---I had to rotate it to read it, to save my neck
