A painting of me

My Second Print

   28 January 2009, evening time

Today I learned how to set up borders on the easel, and spent some more time trying to sort out printing. It didn’t seem as productive a day as last week. I was making lots of silly mistakes this time. It took far too many tries to get this print to turn out. I need to be a lot more methodical when i’m in the darkroom. I have way too many test strips that are obviously lying to me. I need to remember to stop the lens down when i’m down focusing. I probably did that twice, noticed once. I need to remember to turn off the focus light before putting my paper down. I only did that once. Printing in the darkroom is fun, despite these set backs.

My second print, and some mistakes



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
