|The Importance of the Darkroom In Photographic Education|
I am from Northern New York and highly admire your work. I am currently taking my Second B&W photography class and am wondering what the next step would be in advancing my skills in this field. I am just now learning advanced techniques such as sepia toning and fiber based paper. Is there something other than Ansel's work that truly inspired you? Thanks so much for your time! Sincerely, Seth L.
Dear John, Do you have any advise for a young girl interested in photography? I am very new to this hobbie and love it. I use my Grandpas old film camera and my digital camera all the time. I am also interested in art so I like the idea of being a graphic artist. Thanks, Mehgan
Dear John, What kind of darkroom printing easel do you recommend? My prints are not as sharp as I think they could be - I wonder if the paper is sitting flat enough - I am using speed easel for 8X10 and Saunders for 11X14. These are medium format images from Hasselblad 501CM. Thank you, Phil
