It is a fine day in the Sonoran desert. In spite of that I continue to finish up on the black and white photo chemistry book. That project took much less time than I had anticipated in the beginning. Realizing there is an ever slimmer margin of photographers shooting film, and developing on their own, I am hoping such a book will be useful for learning what is taking place when they develop, as well as learning how simple, and worthwhile it is to mix your own developers. But then I am biased on that front. . . Black and white photography is alive and well, even in its traditional format. Understanding that craft is essential for arriving at a fine art print.
