I’ve been scanning all afternoon and came across this little ditty…shot by Donato del Guidice on his humongous 8x10…a tack to sharp for my taste…but of course I can hold still ‘cause: (music) “I am a rock”…haha…no more posts until monday…too many things to take care off…too many things to do…it’s always go go go for me lately…or in the undying words of ‘Eisenpimmel’: ‘zu viele Weiber, zu wenig Zeit’! Have a great time everyone-Django

and since I had a great day today and a bunch of things just came together…I’ll treat you with a second one…I was lucky and got some sunlight reflecting from the windows on the opposite side of the street…it’s not flawless but I think it’s pretty good…. :D

One day I need to invest in some new bellows…I hate how they always sag into the image…but I like this new background, too bad I can’t take it with me once I leave, since it’s painted on the wall…

I always forget we don’t shoot 8x10 paper but 7x9 1/2 so the crop is pretty tight…also it’s slightly overexposed maybe half a stop…the lens on my 5x7 underexposes a little bit, because it’s a old compound with the old time scale on it and I’m used to that…haha…it’s hard going back to shooting 5x7 once you shot a larger format…when does my 8x10 arrive…I got a chain trade going and now I have to wait until it unfolds…

I shanghaid him from the street and Donato did the shoot…I was too excited to recall the specifics of the 8x10…I’ll write it down next time…It’s great beeing able to exchange yourself with a similiar madman…while most photographers are pretty exclusive with their skills, Donato just waltzed into the studio one day and demanded we should do something together…and here we are… :D

I moved the studio this week to a new location…it’s nice and I get to share the place with a bunch of polish misfits…who play guitar all the time and are always good for a joke…in the long run I’ll need to find a steady gig though…once business picks up, I’m already on my merry again…I’m also thinking about more drastic measures to attain more customers…kidnapping…ahem…advertisment…I hate to advertise myself…but I guess it’s either that or beeing a bartender again…well…I’m working on a poster design as we speak. Cheers-Django
