    Hi Dan. I love reading your blog. Does your mind ever shut off? You’re like the Energizer Bunny…you just keep going and going.

    Great reading, thanks.

      Nope. I wish it did. A real issue at times. But hey, life is grand, there is always time to comment. Thanks for reading Scratch.

    Just wanted to say thank you for your talk at Cypress. Good information and got my creative juices flowing. I also am not good at the design side of books. Any advice?

      Hey Ross,

      Sure, you are welcome. I love doing talks like that, glad you got something out of it. I think, most importantly, we realize now…we all need at least 3 different adapters for our laptops!

    I just read one of your blogs.I love the way you express yourself.
    You’ve got one of those obsessive minds, like the rest of us photographers.
    Thank you for being real.

      Thank you for saying that. I love blogging, but know that my view are fairly entrenched outside the norm of the modern photo-industry.

    Hi Dan,

    I found your blog after Googling “Leica” and “documentary,” and probably a few other inane terms.

    Wondering if you have an email address…I’m splitting more of my productive time between a Gigantaflex 5000 dSLR and my new love, an M6 and Tri-X.

    Since you’ve already invented the wheel, wondering if we can chat about honest-to-goodness film photography methodology (developing, printing, scanning, sharing, etc). I’ve returned to my roots (film) with a vengeance, and I thought it’d be comforting to hear from someone who has been there, done that. I learned photography during high school in SoCal in the early ’80s.

    Thanks, and keeps up the blog…it’s my new fave read.

    Hi Dan,

    Found your blog through a tweet by Zarias and I just wanted to say I haven’t stopped reading for the past 2 hours straight. I really like your views on photography and just wanted to say thanks for sharing all this. Looking forward to reading and seeing more of your work.

      Two hours is a total marathon! I appreciate you taking the time. I’m feverishly working on new material. Thanks for reading Kourosh.

    I found your blog through a Zarias Tweet as well. I never stopped shooting film but as my business has demanded a higher volume of work I am slamming into a digitization wall. I was curious if I could ask you some questions about scanning color negative film and removing the mask? I’ve seen some beautiful color shots on your website and also wondered what you like to use for color stock?

    OBTW: thanks for helping me save $850. I felt like a reprimanded kid when I read “The Barracuda Complex” but you were right. I always knew that anyway.

    Today, I was checking into some flash photography internet sites and one of them have a link to your site. Out of curiosity I click the link and the first thing I read was your notes on the Hawaii trip. You still shoot film. That’s great. I still shoot film. I love Ilford Pan F Plus and HP5. I love the darkroom, I love black and white. I will be reading your comments on a regular basis. So keep writing.
