Re: Guitar Man- Second Look

A second version with a little tweak here and there- mainly a bit more brightness in the face. Reminds me of the old darkroom days when prints looked perfect when they were wet but "dried down" and was a bit muddy at the end of the line. Certain fiber bases old fashioned papers did that s...

Re: Guitar Man- A custom print for Dave!

As the rookie employ at my first job in a studio, after graduating to darkroom assistant from gopher/janitor/slave- I was relegated to the darkroom. To me, back in the day, the camera room was the “throne room” of the “palace” with all the fine gear and interesting props while the darkroom was the ...

Re: Sweet Dreams

Dave congrats on the placement in the finals at Viewbug. I think I remember this guy if memory serves me right you were busy shooting him under the landing for the Zip Line while I tried to convince the Fremont Street Experience Rent A Cop that we were just tourists out photographing the street.
