How Chriscrawfordphoto does it...

I am very happy that at the way my first thread about some of our members' techniques has been accepted. in that thread I mentioned that I initially asked two members to provide the forum with an explanation of how they do what they do, Chris Crawford is that other member. If you read the Film and Developing Forum here at RFF, then you are familiar with Chris' contributions and sharing here. Chris recently described to the forum his use of D-76, and the detail that is described in Kodak's Tech Sheet for this product which explains the volume of solution which is required for various number of reels of film. His attention to detail and the extent to which he has experimented to perfect his method was never more apparent.

When I approached Chris yesterday he very willingly accepted my request, and went to work making some changes and updates to his website where in fact he has quite a bit of technical data about the films and developers he uses, as well as his scanning methods. Chris is also at work putting together pages which will discuss his printing techniques and Camera Work, how he sets exposure and such.

Those who have visited Chris' website have already enjoyed the information he generously shares there. If you have not yet done so, please do and enjoy....

First the front page,

http://www.chriscrawfordphoto.com/

and of course his Tech Pages,

http://www.chriscrawfordphoto.com/technical/index.php

Please let me offer another very big thank you...

Thank you Chris!!!


Your contributions here at RFF are very appreciated.

I like what Chris does...
I like his eye...
I like his results...
I like his willingness to share...(knowledge, as well as images)
I also must applaud his time invested in his Photography...it's something a lot of people don't see as worthwhile...
To all the Newbies who want to cut corners and expect perfection it doesn't work that way...there are many years of learning and doing invested in what Chris does to produce what he does...you just can't cheat or luck your way to that...
I must say "Thank you" to Chris for your hard work and time spent on Photography...it shows...

I must admit that I do greatly value Chris' knowledge... when I see one of his posts I always stop to read it.

I always like hearing the thoughts of talented photographers of film and developer choices and the way they handle those products. In seeing a few of the images that Chris has posted on RFF, I am particularly struck by the high key nature of many of his pictures, and the way he handles and uses those high values to give his images a particular feel. His rendering of snow is very impressive.

Thanks for connecting these. Chris is a serious photographer, I'm more of an experimenter. So, more points of view is always helpful.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, and thanks Rover for asking me to do this. As soon as I get some other work done I'm going to be adding some more info to my site.

Chris has wet printing down cold. You really can't completely appreciate his prints without holding them in your hands.

Chris is very generous with time and information, having helped me with a printer problem a while back. In addition to being excellent technically, of course, he also has a great eye and a distinctive style. Rover, I think this is a brilliant idea. John was a good place to start and Chris a good place to continue. Who will be next? I for one have a lot to learn (few of you out there are as technically sloppy as I am; all my scratches, stains, water spots, dust and hairs are slowly becoming my "style;" not something I'm exactly proud of).

Chris, thanks.

I have always enjoyed Chris's contributions. And his personal work does inspire me to keep improving and gives me ideas for my own projects.
His details about film/developer combo's is a nice addition, and well presented.
Thanks Chris, fellow Hoosier.

That's a huge compliment, because the prints that you have were made on an Epson R2400!

If you have already visited Chris' web site and technical pages (like I did again yesterday), there is reason to do so again. Chris has finished and added a page on his printing techniques. Thank you again Chris.

Exactly my point! I only wish I could get as good B&W results on my 3800.

For everyone who hasn't looked recently, Chris is still working hard updating the tech info on his web site. Most recently are thoughts on how he mats and frames his images.

So, again, a big thank you to Chris for his willingness to share this info, and his contributions here at RFF.

I've been working on a lot of new tutorials since this thread was last updated. My tech info pages are now at Crawford Photo School and I have been teaching myself to shoot and edit video so that I can make video tutorials showing my techniques for film processing, shooting, and Photoshop editing! My YouTube channel has seven videos on it now!

Priceless Chris! Goes to show, with knowledge, patience, it really does not matter if it is a darkroom or lightroom print. What matters is attention to one's technique and soul.

Bravo.

Thanks, Keith. I began digital printing back in 2003. 11 years ago...ancient times by digital standards, and I had a Hell of a time learning this stuff. I had done darkroom printing since I was 15, and I was VERY good. The learning curve for scanning, photoshop editing, and getting good quality black and white prints was enormous. The tutorials I've written and made videos for are designed to help others start out doing it right without the frustration, trial and error, and lengthy research I had to do.

I have just finished a video for my tutorial website that shows how I process film, from start to finish.

It is long, about 50 minutes, because it shows m doing everything from cleaning my developing equipment and mixing chemicals to the actual processing work and hanging up the completed negs to dry.

Chris.. It was fun to see how you process your film. Your free use of water reminds me how the California drought has changed my water use. I also now know that someone in your household plays croquet... I think. I've enjoyed your contribution to RF over the years... thanks..

Water is plentiful in the Midwest. Fort Wayne has three rivers and about 50 small streams that flow into them! Our water comes from one of the rivers. It looks like a lot of water is used, but I think running my clothes washer or taking a shower takes more water than film developing does.

The junk in the basement is all crap my family has stored there for decades. This used to be my grandparents house. A lot of the stuff belongs to my parents (despite them having a much larger house!), my sister, and my uncle, as well as stuff my grandmother hoarded. Before I moved in, my mother (its her parents house) threw away a whole dumpster full of empty egg cartons, empty kleenex boxes, etc. The basement was full of crap like that. I think the croquet set belongs to my grandma. We used to play with it when I was a kid, but no one, not even my grandparents, knew how to actually play the game. Don't know why they bought it or when, but its been there at least 40 years.

I had a patient a few weeks ago that plays croquet professionally. I didn't realize that such a profession existed. Maybe your grandmother was on to something.

I like how you're so confident in your ability. From what I've seen you ARE really good and the confidence to say it is great to see. I feel like most people have trouble claiming something that's true. No reason to be modest if you are great, right?

I haven't even looked yet, but can already tell this is going to be great. Thankfully I don't have to get up early tomorrow morning, because I think I'll be watching/reading a lot from about 30 seconds from now.

People seem not willing to follow instructions. They want to screw around with stand developing, push processing, old film, etc. This is a precision project and you need to use a film, calibrate to it, and do exactly the same thing time after time. Want the same result, do it the same way.

I have not read Chris methods, but I will guarantee he fully exposes and used proper developing. Only way.

I still develop my own film, but I scan the negs instead of printing in the darkroom. I've suffered from serious health problems most of my life, most recently I had a minor stroke a year ago! I had to stop darkroom printing because the chemicals were causing me severe respiratory problems, even though I had a very good ventilation system. That was 10 years ago!

I would like to do a video showing printing. I teach private lessons in Fort Wayne for people who want to work directly with me to learn, and I have had a couple of people recently who wanted to learn darkroom work. Both were high school art teachers who were told they needed to teach darkroom (both were young teachers who had only done digital), so I met them at their schools and taught them. It had been years since I'd done it, but its like riding a bicycle, you never forget! I miss it, but don't miss getting sick. I didn't spend enough time in the darkrooms to affect me badly when I was teaching these teachers, but if I had my darkroom working again I know I'd end up spending all day in there.

I'd like to do a video of darkroom printing, but I'd have to find someone willing to let me use theirs.

Ronald,

I agree with you. I think some of it, like esoteric developing methods such as stand developing, represents the perpetual quest for a "Magic Bullet" some photographers spend a lifetime chasing.

Pushing is useful in some types of work, like photojournalism, where getting a shot is so important that you can sacrifice absolute quality (example, if the film you have isn't fast enough, you can push to 'get a picture' even if the picture sucks..its better than no picture).

Using old film is just tightfistedness. I know some people who do it genuinely don't have much money, but RFF is full of men who make more than 95% of the population of the USA or the EU, who own $30,000 worth of Leica gear, and then quibble over spending $6 a roll for film. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Amen to the cheap film comment. Not only do you have thousands in equipment, you also run the risk of spending time, which is not replaceable, and a photo op with dodgy film. Doesn't make sense.

After I developed some film yesterday, I thought of showing my procedure for cutting film into strips to fit into plastic Print File binder pages. Film often binds up when trying to insert it into the pages, and I show you a little trick to prevent that from happening!
