Back Lots, More Winter Light

Norwich, Connecticut

A couple reminders. There's a print sale Special Offer here during the month of February. Small exhibition quality prints from the "107 Drive-ins" subset of my American Drive-in Theater project at much less than standard gallery price. Just click the link at the top of the sidebar on the right of this page to find out more.

Second, if you click the link below that one, you'll be taken to my other blog, which has been dormant for a while, but I've revived it now to show a series of pictures that are a subset of my current shooting. An interesting discussion has begun in the comments there, about preparing digital image files for the web vs preparing them to output exhibition quality prints. I try to keep this blog centered on pictures rather than technique or gear, but one of the possible uses of WPII might be to engage a bit more in those technical issues if anyone is interested.

Hi Carl,

This seemed like the best place to tell you that my Fiesta DI print arrived today. It is wonderful. I have an Epson 3800 and now I have a benchmark for print quality. I have a ways to go but if I can make prints that clear and crisp I will be a happy boy. A frame awaits the print. I recommend to any reader to order one.....what a bargain!

So glad you like the print. My mentor, David Vestal, said about printing—and it applies in all media, pre and post digital—less is less, more is more, and enough is enough.

That's how to make a print. You have to find the "enough" point.

Of course, David also said that the only thing you have to do to make a good photograph is, "stand in the right place, push the button at the right time."

Which is pure Zen...
