Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Hey Helen,

There's a problem with your GoFundMe link above, you may want to fix it.

Here's the correct link.

Best wishes to you and Eric.

Eric keeps me on my Toes shooting...
He learned photography watching Me and fell in Love with rangefinders
I taught him the basics Aperture, shutter speed, Film ASA, Developing. Then we took off with lenses. The way they render, speed, oof.
His favorite lenses: Both the 35 summaron f3.5 and 2.8 and the 50 Summicron V3
He obviously has a Great ‘EYE’ ...Captures Atmosphere, Emotion with ease, His Framing and Composition dance and Drawer the Viewer in

here are some of my Favorite shots he took
Eric loves shooting Portraits, Street and Demonstrations

I used this in my early days here on Rff as my avatar
I set the camera up for him , decided on a 50 lux v2, used neopan 1600 my favorite film for daylight and night
He framed it and shot back in 2008... Eric then knew he was hooked on photography ...:LOVE IT

Helen,

We've only exchanged a few posts/comments in threads and I wasn't acquainted at all with Eric but I'm saddened to read here what you both are going through. You have my thoughts for comfort and healing through this ordeal. Wonderful photos and posted here!

David

After 8 months of no paychecks, our cupboards are almost bare, but I accepted a job that I start in the middle of next month. Once cash flow becomes actual and positive I'll send something. Perhaps I can sell a few things here and send all the profits (need to cover shipping) to you. Need to noodle on it a bit, perhaps come up with a better idea.

Of course, good thoughts and prayers to you and Eric. I wish I was there so I could visit him and fill his ears with dum jokes and stories.

Hang in there, your family here will help both of you get through this.

I'm very sorry to hear this. I'm also stuck with a cancer I can most probably never get rid of but with, at this time, a longer life-expectancy (at least some years, I think).

Best Regards,
Anders
