Darkroom Frustrations

In a few weeks, I'll be heading up towards Petoskey, MI for the Northern Light Photographic Workshops and the photographic gathering organized by Bill Schwab. I had a great time at last year's event, and met lots of excellent and dedicated photographers. In anticipation of that, I have been trying to print a bunch of images, many of which were taken last year. Sometimes I am "in the zone" when printing, and things come out looking great, but the past few outings into the darkroom have not been one of those times. I blame myself for this, as I should be in there more frequently, and I confess that I have been scanning more negs than making darkroom prints. That's come round to bite me in the butt. Images that I scanned in previously have not been as impressive on paper. Anyhow, I'll work through this, and have a bunch of prints to bring up with me on June 24. I better get cracking, though and no excuses. At least hockey season will finally be over Friday night, taking away one more distraction...
