The Darkroom Adventures

Its all started when  I wanted to print photos  from my  Harris trip. As i don’t own a professional photo printer at home, I had two options to go for. Either send the scans to digital lab or print it myself in the darkroom.

Second option was much more appealing , but there was one problem. Where will I find a darkroom?

Since I bought 503CW, I knew that I’ll be not able to carry around medium frame camera and a full frame DSLR together. As much as I love my Nikon, I’ve decided that I will look for something smaller, but powerful….

I don’t remember exactly when I started to think about buying a medium format camera.
It was long time ago, a long time before I’ve bought my digital SLR D700.
I’ve always adored look and feel of photographs made by medium frame camera.

The Photography Show 2015

Photography Show 2015

Every year The Photography Show  is a “Must” for all photographers. Even I did not want to buy a thing, I was really looking forward for this years show. Once headliners had been announced, I knew who I want to see. Master Michael Kenna was announced as a speaker at Super stage on Sunday. Together with my friend Miro we booked the tickets and I get Michael’s book ready to take with me.

When Sunday 22 april 2015 came, I was ready. Photography Show was good,exciting and very busy. I spent some money on Lee filters and some Fuji Velvia 50 slide films. Other than that I was only browsing around, checking new Manfrotto tripods , Nikon and Hasselblad  stands and all the others.

What I like about the show is that every photographer can find something interesting for whatever he’s doing.

Kenna’s talk started at 11 and I’ve been sitting in a second row from the front. Master Kenna talked for about 1.5 hour and it was very inspirational. At the end I walked up the stage to as him to sign the book . He gladly did a we had a short chat.
