Price: whatever you think is fair.
I am hosting a garage sale on August 11 & 12 here in south central Michigan, but hoped to put some of this in the hands of my friends.
Please put questions in the comments below.
Yes, I have some good connections with a couple of schools, including the College of Creative Studies in Detroit.
The lights are pretty much gone. Very cool strobes going to a college in northern Indiana. The teacher, a friend of mine, will be able to set up a studio for her students with all the lighting!
Here are the timers that I have left. One looks very vintage!
I live in Coldwater. Someone coming on Monday to get an enlarger and hopefully more.
Any powerful lights for "light painting"?
Can you give me a brand, Larry? We had a lot of lights, most of them gone now ... but there are a few things left.
Connie, There are lots of brands. Basically, I'm looking for a powerful spotlight. Battery powered. There are two primary types of light painting. The one in which the light source is within the frame (within the picture) VS the type where the light source is outside of the frame, projecting into the picture. I am seeking the outside the frame type.
Therefore a spot, possibly variable to semi flood. Due to the age of equipment, it is likely you do not have any that are LED. Those are best for me.
Must be rechargeable battery powered.
gels (colored overlays)
powerful (lots of lumens / candlepower)
a stand for mounting
This would not be part of the darkroom equipment. It would be with the shooting equipment.
Basically a portable spotlight, with accessories.
Pretty much Norm shot with natural light, so we don't have much lighting for studio. But I believe you are asking for darkroom use. Nothing digital, stands are gone, probably not any of the above. He did no shooting after 2006 so that gives you some idea of the vintage of our equipment. He was interested in light painting, had DVDs about it and it was of interest to him, but he never did any.
He didn't do any lighting for his photos, only worked with available light. The studio had a skylight and outdoors he shot mostly with infrared film, I don't think that would work well with artificial lighting, but honestly don't know that for sure.
Very happy to report that Debbie Maylen drove over from Dearborn, MI, yesterday and my burden has been lightened. She helped me out and I helped her out. Piles are now smaller.
Still have that big enlarger looking for a home, but half the chemistry, half the negative holders, half the trays and beakers, half the photo paper, etc. on to its new home.
Sold this large enlarger! It is not going to a landfill which was my fear.
The small enlarger is still available, plus some timers ... chemicals, negative holders ...
