    B&W Darkroom Paper Bible

    It's time to go all the way. Your digital camera has been on the shelf for months, entombed in dust. When it comes to loading your film camera, you're like a well-trained photographic assassin loading your sniper rifle. Your bathroom has a lingering odor that can't quite be identified by your friends, but that smell of fixer during your morning shower is like your first cup of coffee: necessary and refreshing. You're a film nut and you're proud of it. But once those negatives have dried, you're again stuck behind a screen while you scan and tone your images. It's time for that to change, and the first step in moving toward a full darkroom is understanding photographic paper.

    The thunderstorm was right in front of my window. So, after a view minutes of watching the lightnings come down, I decided to open the window, take my Lubitel, a gorillapod and a cable release. I let the shutter open for a very long time until finally lightning struck! This was an experiment, so I was very happy that it turned out that good!

    Canon Canonet QL17

    Often described (as many other cameras are) as the "poor man's Leica", the Canon Canonet QL17 is a brilliant rangefinder at a fraction of the cost of most other rangefinders. It sports a crystal clear, tack sharp, f1.7 45mm lens that accurately captures colors as well as all the gradients between black and white. Produced in the mid-1960s and sturdily built, many excellent examples of this camera and later versions can be found on ebay for a steal. Due to age, the light seals need to replaced but this can be done by most camera enthusiasts with a sheet of black foamy, x-acto knife, and some adhesive. There are several website that offer instructions on how to replace the seals simply by plugging Canonet QL17 into a search engine.

Both Lomographer and painter are two artists that are aiming for one similar thing - to make beautiful pictures. And for this week, see how our Tipster chose to paint with light, literally.
