Comment on Nocturne by Anne Knudsen http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/Nocturne/#comment-56379 Sun, 16 Nov 2014 03:40:18 +0000 http://marktweedie.co.uk/?p=70#comment-56379 My father studied in Paris in 1974 at the Atlelier 17. We rented part of an apartment that was owned my Michael and Odile Tweedie. I thought I would just try and reach someone who might have know Mr. and Mrs. Tweedie. They came to visit us in Chicago many year age. My father passed away last March. He loved Paris and I have wonderful memories of our time spent there. Anne Knudsen

Comment on Bookbinding tools take shape by Mark Tweedie http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/Bookbinding-tools-take-shape/#comment-18885 Thu, 10 Apr 2014 05:37:29 +0000 http://marktweedie.co.uk/?p=5#comment-18885 Hi Jan, I find the flat folder really useful for making long folds in paper. Being able to grasp it and work it along the paper with your whole hand rather than just a couple of fingers makes for a stronger and more precise fold. The bone folder comes into its own for working on smaller more delicate folds such as the corners of the cover material around the boards. In any case they are so easy to make there is no reason not to have one.

Good luck with your first binding!

Mark

now, what i really want to ask you…do you find the flat folder is really necessary? i’m just wondering if i really need it or if a bone folder will do the job just as well? the one you’ve made looks awesome by the way.

so s you can tell, i’m only just embarking on my adventure of bookbinding…it’s kind of exciting really!!

sincerely
jan

Comment on Paper negative – the underestimated medium by Mark Tweedie http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/paper-negative-the-underestimated-medium/#comment-18431 Sat, 29 Mar 2014 19:42:40 +0000 http://marktweedie.co.uk/?p=115#comment-18431 The only way to do this really is to experiment until you find what works for you. I work on the basis that the pre-flashed paper I use has an ISO of about 6 so it is possible to use a light meter to measure the required exposure fairly accurately (or to calculate it by adding stops of exposure to whatever reading you manage to make if your meter will not measure as low as 6). With a pinhole camera I prefer to estimate the exposure based on experience with the cameras I use and I find this surprisingly reliable. For paper negatives in a shuttered/lensed camera meter at about ISO 6. It is easier when the weather is overcast as paper is much harder to expose correctly in bright sunshine especially as the resulting image will be much more contrasty than on film.

Comment on Paper negative – the underestimated medium by Digoy http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/paper-negative-the-underestimated-medium/#comment-18394 Fri, 28 Mar 2014 15:49:59 +0000 http://marktweedie.co.uk/?p=115#comment-18394 This is a great article, thank you for this. I’m new to Large Format photography and since film is hard to get where I’m from I’m thinking of using paper negative which is easier to buy. My question is how do I calculate for the exposure time?

This is one of my personal favourites too. It represents one of those all too rare but happy instances where the the final result is close to the visualised image at the time. Good luck with the studies.

Comment on Departure by Lucy Telford http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/departure/#comment-13587 Tue, 03 Dec 2013 23:25:11 +0000 http://www.marktweedie.co.uk/blog/?p=9915#comment-13587 I love this Mark. On the one hand, a sense of preparation for leaving although the destination is uncertain. Perhaps the destination is a familiar place made unfamiliar by time, at any rate it will no doubt be somewhere others have been before. On the other hand, I experience a sense of dread – as in the one departure we all have to make.

The images are beautiful. Liminal, threshold-like. Beginnings and endings.
