As part of the future dismissal of this website, I started sharing images on 500px.com instead. The albums here will stay until this site stops existing, and they’re not replicated yet in all cases. But with time, they will, and be higher resolution than they are here.
Part of the fun of shooting black and white film is experimenting. Once you develop your film yourself, there are numerous developers to try. Also the number of films available in the market is solid. Actually, the situation has gotten better in the last years. There is plenty to choose from.
It’s not all roses and sweetness, though. As mentioned before, things are getting more expensive. As in my last recipe, this recipe is another one that came out of a quest to lower cost a bit.
Sometimes, and sometimes often, it would be nice to be a photographer with no particular interest for the tools. One of those that can say in full honesty that they don’t care about their camera or lens. But I’m not, and more often than I like, I am quite the opposite.
It’s near impossible these days to read any technology related site without getting swamped in stories on ChatGPT. Or tech-oriented forums, comment sections and so on. As users are exploring the abilities of this technology, more and more use cases emerge.
So today, on a Dutch technology site, somebody wondered whether it signaled the end for the ‘graphics industry’ – mostly meant as graphics designers.
It’s been more than a bit silent on this site. All my fault. Busy with other stuff, short holiday, a backlog on photos to cull, edit and process. Actually, I’m trying to go through that backlog first a bit, to be able to add to the album on this site, and to have some visuals to liven up postings here.
So with all that… real updates will have to wait for the next year.
Have a great start to 2023, and hopefully it’ll bring a year that improves on everything that 2022 ended up being.
Pretty much the last thing this planet needs, is more plastic. Convenient and cheap as it may be to produce, the price we’re paying for it is higher than we should like. It’s an unavoidable material, unfortunately. But I try to avoid it when I can. Which is a lot less often than I like.
