I've played around with koken in its earlier stages, you can do whatever you want with it, it's nice.

Hmmm. I came across it, looks pretty good. Just need a domain. I need a real site, not just a "free 30 images!!!!11!1"

I'm using namecheap for domains, and heroku for hosting, it's trickier than a normal host beause they only give you a sub domain(something.herokuapp.com) but you can setup a CNAME alias with namecheap's DNS so you can make www.something.com point to something.herokuapp.com(not just a simple redirect), it's free up until you use a lot of resources.

P 45 on a 500 series camera is a pretty combo.

500 c/m with a P45

Nice man, my current project is shooting about 15 miles of coast that is currently being absolutely battered by storms, mainly on a P45 but also some 5x4 and 10x8 and turning it into a book. It's really the first big project I've done that will actually have a marketable end product, really hoping to get some attention in the local galleries and art stores.
On a side note, the Hassy 40mm f4 is unimaginably nice to use.

So much $$$$.

Nice, sounds like a cool project. Good luck with galleries and art buyers, can be a tough crowd.

I've never shot with the 40, I've heard it's a great lens.

Luckily one of my part time lecturers runs a company specialising in giving opportunities to emerging artists and has a lot of friends in the local art scene, a lot of whom tend to be pretty generous to the artists he puts his name behind.
Ryan, I know all about that, I think I shot about 150 5x4 images last year, a number of which got printed on 20x24 inch fibre based. Luckily a couple got sold and I managed to recoup a bit of the cost.

The 40mm is next on my list of lenses to get. I'd also like to get my hands on a 120mm Makro.

I recently picked up a 45° prism which is useful.

Yeah, I know all about the expensive film stuff. Oh my. Fibre paper, 4x5 film. Moneyyyyy. My friend spent $200 on like 8x10 polaroid film and I think it was only ten sheets?

Tried BnW again and I'm not sure I did a good job editing it so any crit is welcome.


Also what do you think would be a reasonably priced upgrade from my current camera? Thanks for the help.

I'm using a Canon Powershot SX120 IS
It's 10 megapixels with 10x zoom

It's a good camera but it's taken a beating,
several lines run acros the screen and the
Front has been partially melted by a heat lamp.
Still takes good pics!

Well you could either move up to a dslr or to a range finder... I know ALLOT of people really like the fugi units if you are into rangefinders, If you are thinking DSLR the best starter bang for your buck unit in my mind is the D3200 from nikon.

In honesty 8x10 seems virtually useless, almost nothing requires that level of resolving, but it is very cool.
Anyway, here's the beginnings of the project I mentioned. All from the PhaseOne P45. Only rough edits but crit would be appreciated.
