Silberra Film.....

Just mailed my first roll of Silberra Film to Old School Labs.  I should have result to show by the end of the week.  Silberra was one of my 2018 Successes.

It was also a fun package to receive in the mail:

From Russia with Love...I wonder what the mail man thought of this package?

The Silberrra 160 Pan is on its way to Old School.  The Pan 100 is in the camera now.

2019 Photography Goals

Adding a photo and reposting.......

I had a lot of success in 2018.  OK, that depends on how you measure success.  I had a lot of recognition in 2018.  Success is more a measure of meeting Personal Goals that satisfy one's Artistic Vision.

So these were my stated goals for 2018:

  • Focus on Darkroom Printing Time Especially prints of Moab Symposium events
  • Attend THE FINAL Moab Photo Symposium in May 2018
  • Continue Experiments with IR Film
  • Practice with my newly converted digital full spectrum camera
  • Continue the Charge towards Gallery Submissions (Check My 'Fine Art' Page Here)

I did have prints for Moab and attended the Final Show.  I also submitted images for the Wrap-up Book.

I gave up on IR film and moved on to my Full Spectrum converted Nikon-1.  I use the IR filter to block the parts of the spectrum I'm not interested in.  I got the full spectrum set-up for Ghost Hunting (We'll follow-up on that later).

Still entering contests even though we have discussed why that is bad......

So what are my 2019 Goals:
  • First, Survive my latest medical complications
  • Second, more thoughtful and meditative pursuit of my photography
  • Stay Focussed
  • More Darkroom time
  • AND getting back to the Roots of This Blog; Recording my Life and Times on the Front Range.
    • Restarting Vintage Camera News and Online Weekend Features
    • Continuing the 52 Rolls Redux
    • Film and Camera Reviews
    • Travel Photography
    • Snapshots from Life
