Postcard From Venice

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David19 Comments

Venice, Italy, 2012 Good morning from Venice. We’re now two days into this year’s Venice Within The Frame and it is so good to be back here. Venice is a mixed bag. People either love it or hate it. I both love it and hate it. I love the light, the architecture, the possibilities. I love the food, the wine, …

Postcard from Monterosso al Mare

In Travel by David29 Comments

Monterosso al Mare, Italy, 2012 Hello from the Italian Riviera and the lovely seaside town of Monterosso al Mare. This town is special to me; I fell in love here last year, not with the town so much as a beautiful woman. We’ve spent the last year traveling much of the world together, sharing some beautiful adventures, but we started …

Postcards from Sweden

In Craft & Vision, e-books, News & Stuff, Travel by David39 Comments

I’m just wrapping up an amazing week in Sweden. Spent part of it pubbing and exploring Stockholm, which is an incredible city, and so easy to travel. It’s got great public transport, and it’s small, and extremely friendly. English is so widely spoken I never once had that familiar dread of knowing I needed to mime my way through ordering …

We Bounce

In Life Is Short, Pep Talks by David99 Comments

Ladakh, India, 2008. A year ago, on Easter weekend, I fell 30′ from a wall in Pisa, Italy. Most of you know that. I shattered both feet, cracked my pelvis and was told I would never walk the same again, and would “always have a limp, though you’ll limp with both feet, so it won’t look like a limp.” Whatever …

A couple large prints would look great on these walls. Photographers are a funny lot. So easily distracted. I just came back from the camera store where I came within an inch of buying the new Fuji X Pro 1. I resisted and had a cupcake instead. But as I drove home I thought about it. I had been working …

Iceland, 2010. Click either image to enlarge, then right-click to save to your computer. Two desktop wallpapers this month, due to indecision. I’ve been printing up a storm over here at the loft and in the process I discovered a new series of black and white work from Iceland. These are 2560 x 1600 and will fit anything up to …

Why I Print

In Creativity and Inspiration, Pep Talks, Photographs & Photoshopping, Tutorials &Technique, Workflow & Technical Issues by David63 Comments

Monument Valley, 2011 With the advent of digital photography, and even more importantly, the internet, our ability to share and experience photographs has changed dramatically. The wet darkroom, once so necessary for creating prints we could touch and feel, is much less common than it once was, and if I were a betting man I’d wager that the majority of …

Learn to Print. Get Free Stuff.

In Giveaways, News & Stuff, Workflow & Technical Issues by David

I’ve been at this over 25 years now. I love it. But as I’ve not let light through an open darkroom door in 15 years, it’s time to learn to print again. One of my goals for my eventual (and premature) return to Vancouver was to dig into printing, so moving into and setting up my new loft and office …
