    Here's a very preliminary list of the people who were nice enough to offer to write an article or two. Keep in mind that the ¡VivaFILM! project has only been up for 48 hours or so. Plenty more to come.
    Jonathon Reynolds - Developing b/w film without without a proper darkroom
    Daniel Bayer - Building a darkroom
    Brendan Hohls - Getting a group together to talk about film in your local area
    Doug Grosjean - Guide to swing lens photography
    John O'Keefe-Odom - Camera as enlarger
    Bruce Cahn - Setting up a wooden field camera
    Rishi Sanyal - Advanced scanning
    Tim Gray - Using Vuescan
    Now, don't hold them to anything. They are all busy guys doing this out of the goodness of their heart and I'm sure the articles will be written as soon as everyone has time. But if you have any interest in the project or these articles, please drop them a line of encouragement. I myself will be working on a few film photographer interviews and of course more Filmtown articles.
     
  2. Just the titles make me want to read half of them already. Wish I knew more so I could contribute.
     
  3. To Josh and everyone who is writing an article: Thank You!
     
  4. as someone who recently switched to film (without prior experience in the medium), i'm looking forward to reading all the articles. thanks everybody.
    Josh, where are they going to be posted? and are you going to create the film.photo.net page?
     
  5. Josh, where are they going to be posted? and are you going to create the film.photo.net page?​
    These are all uncharted waters for PN at this point. But I'm hoping to get film.photo.net up in some fashion next week. However, Jin and the programmers are all tied up trying to get the last of the ImagePro reprogramming finished.
    One (or both) of two things will probably happen. I'll probably throw up a completely simple plain page at film.photo.net to keep people organized. Plus, I may start some sort of email notification list to let people who are interested in film photography keep updated.
    At the very least, I will post updates here on the film/processing forum.
     
  6. Thanks, Josh and everybody. I'm really looking forward to reading some fascinating articles.
     
  7. Josh, I'm really excited to read about all this. And thanks to everyone who is planning to write an article! I can't wait to read them.
    If we are interested in writing articles to contribute, do we just contact you directly?

    Yes please. Just use the email link in my profile.
     
  9. Josh, How to read these article, Sorry but I am unable to reach these articles.
     
  10. The articals are not published yet. Stay tuned.
     
  11. National/regional/city listings of quality labs might be worthwhile, especially those willing to do mail order. Just a thought...
     
  12. Almost forgot. "Viva Film" t-shirts are a no brainer, Josh.
     
  13. National/regional/city listings of quality labs might be worthwhile, especially those willing to do mail order. Just a thought...​
    Funny you should mention that. I was just drafting up an idea for the programmers to asist in creating a lab database.
     
  14. Why restrict it to one country? You have readers from all kinds of places.

    Nobody mentioned limiting anything to any particular country. So I'm not sure what you are referring to.
     
  16. Sorry; a previous comment called for a "national/regional/city" registry and I got worried a database would be geared towards USA only (ie. require contact info in that local format and so on). That still happens with some frequency so I perhaps overreacted a bit.
     
  17. While it is possible that we would start such a thing with a US system, if only for the simplicity of creating and testing it, it would not make sense for anything to be "USA only". I would expect that we would end up with a worldwide system in some fashion as our final goal
     
  18. National=nation, like different countries, Janne. PN has always been international.My intent was building a list for countries, regions within countries, cities in regions, OK? I'm sensitive to your concern by living in Canada whose total population is smaller than California's.
     
  19. Hi Rishi and Tim, let me know if you want any help with your scanning articles. I've just been doing some tests of a Nikon 5000 and Vuescan including multisampling vs multiexposure.
    Roger
     
  20. Hi Josh, did any articles ever get published? Has VivaFilm gone anywhere at all? Thanks
