DARKROOM UPDATE

Some tasks left on the ‘want to do list’ but I managed to make my first wet print! Took me three hours to get a good visible result. I did my homework but nothing was as it showed on the instruction video’s. So I needed to figure out a lot of things. For example, lightening times. How much light do you send form the enlarger through the negative on to the positive paper. How much tie do you need in the develop solution, nothing is at seems on the information I collected. So I need to figure out everything myself and I like that very much. I lost track of time and was able to focus on my tasks. It was almost therapeutic working in the darkroom.

I have set some goals for myself: making my work even more unique and working towards an all homeprinted exhibition in the future. I will keep you posted as much as I can. On the blog an in the newsletter. The best results will appear on the blog.

See you soon!

Have a great Sunday!

General Update

Currently building my darkroom. It is much more challenging than I had in mind. Basics are in there, now I need to have running water. I have an idea how to manage that without destroying doors and things. After that I need to blind the windows. There are several interesting solutions. Still open for suggestions and ideas. I am planning to have my darkroom running at the end of the first quarter of 2019!

Last week I had a meeting about my book. The first print shop ruined the complete batch of 250. So I don't trust anyone at the moment. We had a good talk and they everything to gain my trust. Downpart is the printshop is over 300kilomters away. So I need a whole day to stop by for anything book related. This book will also be ready in the first quarter of 2019!

Planning new shoots to make new Fine Art Portraits. My project 'Homo Anonymous' does work but I need a different approach. Prints are for sale, contact me about the options. So I will be looking for new ways. Sales are very low at the moment. Currently having my project 'Verlaten' (abadoned) for sale. Please take a look in the shop. Let me know what you think.

Decluttering

As part of the ‘Darkroom Project’ I need to clean and paint and declutter all my stuff. And I can tell it is a lot! Most of it is work related: camera’s / Photobooks and Magazines / Photography accessories like hundreds of filters and batteries, neckstraps and so on. Most of the things I am selling will be through Marktplaats. Make sure to take a look and make an offer if you like!
