CCD, By The Hour

No, it’s not the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, it’s the Chicago Community Darkroom! A place like this–a rental darkroom by the hour–once existed over at Racine and Montana, waaaaay back when; this enterprise has moved from North Milwaukee avenue to a very good location in what everyone pretends is the “South Loop.” Check out their terms and hours and rates and facilities.

Now You See It, Now You Don’t

This blawwg was so good that we examined the sequencing in class, back in the good old days. (Maybe they’re still on a jump drive somewhere.)

OK, Let’s Go!

Plan your days by location, history, architecture, culture, interior decor, exclusivity of access, or whatever. Our recommendation to many folks we know is Sedgwick Studio (“Enter through alley, use red door”). These are pictures from last year at that location (as ever, click on pix to enlarge ’em).

Hahahahahaha (Jajajajajajaja)!

“One of the arguments against digital is that you can shoot and shoot and shoot like crazy without being discerning. I agree with that—it is a problem. Do you know what I do to overcome that? I only use 4GB memory cards, because I don’t want to edit. Listen, editing is a pain in the ass. You don’t want to edit 3,000 images. On a 4GB card, you’ll get about 100 shots, which is the equivalent of three rolls of film. That’s a great way to make you more discerning.”
