This one was the first off the free roll of Ektar that came with my Flyer. Thanks for that Clint! This one is very blurry, but it has a certain "dreamy" look to it. I got about a dozen others, from the rest of this roll and a roll of B&W that I have also run through the camera.

Thanks. I have an open entry in an art exhibition for the early fall and plan on entering this.

This is some Pinhole Magic. Ektar 100 exposed for something like 11 or maybe 13 seconds. This is not an SLR shot with a lens cap pinhole, but a 120 frame from my flyer 6x6 made on a 3D printer by "Pinhole, Printed".

Well, my Flyer 6x6 is on it's way all the way from Austin up to Cow Town (Fort Worth). As a long time film shooter, I have been deeply into SLR (Nikon FG - cost me $5 in a warehouse sale, Nikormat FT3 - purchased new in 1978) and 120 film in an Ansco folder and even a Kiev 88 for a long time. I am looking forward to using this printed camera, which is an intriguing mix of photography using film and pinhole/Camera Obscura concepts made using 21st century techniques. But you all knew that already... :-)

The big question for me is how the heck did I miss this project from a fellow Texas resident when it was first on Kickstarter? 

Next thing is once my camera arrives, I'm going to run a few rolls of Tmax 100 through it and for once I'm kind of excited about seeing the results. Do you guys find that a support is needed and if so, at what point (number of seconds), it is essential. I'm not sure I could hold it steady for more that a really short while...

Oh Clint.... I found out about this from a fellow member of the Film Shooters Collective (web site of the dot com name and Facebook group. You might like to poke about - we have a closed/private discussion group too and if you want in, tell the owner (Cameron Klien) that I sent you.

Developing and Darkroom  - 
 
A question for anyone developing C-41 themselves using the "Press Kit", I am getting about 8 to 10 rolls out of each one liter mix before I get to the point where I have to think about replacing it. Not so much that the colors start to drift, or the times need too much adjustment but because there seems to be some debris being shed by the film into the solution. Not a large quantity or size of the chunks, but its like as the soup gets older, I seem to get more 'dust' spots on a neg than when it is fresh. Has anyone else had this kind of effect?

Never had that issue but I can see that happening. The filter sounds like a good idea.

Another one from my Olympus 35RC rangefinder. Same roll as the red curtain shot. Actually this was the next frame! Taken a few days latter, this was a rainy day and focus on the window. There is a shadow from a door behind and right which explains the division in color casts on the right third of the image. There were fewer rain drops showing than were actually on the window. They appear more as streaks than anything!!!

Discussion  - 
 
I wonder what others feel about this as a concept....

I don't like seeing the SAME ten photos posted in all the film groups (here on G+ as well as everywhere else), along with links to web sites, blogs and dealerships by new members as if they just made some kind of earth shattering discovery; "Oh look, Canon and Nikon have web sites!" 

Sorry, but after seeing the SAME thing on a dozen or more blogs/groups/pages etc I just want to give a big YAWN! 

Is it time for a group where you ONLY post a photo to as a unique and one time post?

Some ppl prefer to post links to their photos because up loading the photo to the group doesn't capture number of views.

There are many of us doing film processing ourselves. Just over in Fort Worth (as I am), I process it all myself. C-41/E-6 are EASY. B&W is actually a little bit more complex and takes more time. Amazing! Join the Film Shooters Collective (FSC) on Facebook (P.M. or email me) and I'll send you an invitation. On the FSC web site I posted a really long, detailed and tip filled tutorial in the blog section about a year ago now.

Ted, both as someone working on staff at your Alma Mater in Denton and as someone who never gets more than 5 seconds to talk to Burt (I have tried twice now and he always seems to be called away), AND as someone deeply into using film to photograph (I use 120 film, not 35mm by preference), let me tell you that this debate is as old as the hills themselves.

The future for the visual arts in general is as obscure as some think it is for photography. I am convinced that the "Instagram Generation" need to sort out what they want from photography before we will know where we are going. It just seems that we are just taking pictures of things we took before and when someone pops up and says "Look - new!" there is always a detractor (I know - I'm just remaking your point).

When someone knows what the next big thing is, let me know as well, will you?

+theartofphotography There is a note I posted elsewhere about the itunes only Beyonce album (I'm not commenting about her or the music she produces) called: "Beyoncé releases an album – within a week it's as if it had never happened".  If you want the link, I'll post it, but the point is what value does the product itself have anymore if its lifespan is a week or less? Where does this leave the visual arts or photography in particular if we only look at the latest snap shot and not anything else?

Kiev 88/80mm standard lens, on Tmax100. A little bit of cropping, dust removal and contrast adjustment is all.... This one is resized DOWN to 2kx2k pixels from the original as-scanned size (6k x 6k pixels), so we don't fill all of Google's disks. HAHAHAHA....

Yes. The 35 RD had a 40mm f1.7 lens.

Introduction
I'm a bit of a geek! Lets face it, anyone with a degree called "Technology Studies" and who mostly works with computers at a university has to be.

I'm interested in all sorts of tech related things, and am also a reasonable (have won prizes and been published in print and online) photographer. 

Most of my father's family were professional musicians in the "Big Band" Jazz era and I was born in the same place (but 20 years latter), as Don McCullin the British war photojournalist.
