That is a great quote. I have always been a fan of black and white photography. It gets rid of the extraneous content that color can bring and focuses more on the subject. I just happen to like it best when it's done with film.

Not long ago I read a quote where ""Color is called Reproduction, where B & W is called Interpretation."

Daguerreotypes have a hard learning curve. I am self taut using a book and correspondence with the only guy I could find to give me pointers before there was much of an internet to hold your hand through it. At the time I was learning there were less than a dozen known practitioners, now there are probably a hundred or two living who have made one. That message board, though very quiet most of the time, makes it much easier now than it was back then. It is relatively easy to get an image but difficult to get a great one. Right now there are three guys I can think of that make consistent great, artful images, the rest just take pictures using old techniques. One of these modern masters Jerry Spagnoli told me his "failure rate" is 3 in 5, mine felt like it was more like 99 in 100. The other two are Eric Mertins and Mike Robinson if your interested in seeing their work.

Now that is some cool stuff right there. I am glad to hear that you saved your stuff. I've never tried that technique or a number of other historic processes. They are on my bucket list of things to do, unfortunately it's quite a long list. My only piece of advice is don't wait too long for that rainy day!

Shot, processed and printed a lot of film until digital took over the professional documentation end of my work. I have dabbled in historic processes and cameras since the late 1990's. cdags.org/galleries/daguerreotypes-larry-shutts/

Not much time for it these days, but I saved all my equipment for the proverbial rainy day.

I know there has probably have been a lot of cool photos taken this summer that does not make it on the site.
It might help the calendar if we start a "calender thread" where we can post potential photos used for the upcoming calender.

Just a thought.

All you have to do is show up and start snapping away. :hmm:
