Because of the change in schedule last Saturday, here with a re-confirmation of the changed schedule: Tuesday, the 6th of december: Both the documentary and the fiction group assemble at 00.45 pm in front of the entrance of the ICC. This is because of extra security measures taken by the ICC in occasion of a judicial event on upcoming Tuesday. The Court informed me about this last Friday. My apologies for any inconveniences this might cause for you.

- darkroomprinting - To make it easy! On analog photo paper the contrast (gradation/grade) can be determined with filters. The paper-sensitivity for detailed white is equal for all grades 0 through 3,5. (Filters 4 through 5 have half that speed.) Estimate the exposure time for detailed white. Then look at the shadows and choose the appropriate grade-vilter. Summary: analog printing: expose for the whites and filter for the blacks.

-Ai, film overexposed- What to do?! When your film was a dia (slide) film: bad luck. This film is made for good contrast and has a very short exposure latitude. The negative film, being a half product, has a wider dynamic range. There is plenty room for overexposure. Even 5 F-stops is no problem. Although overexposure results in a high density, Trying to correct the overexposure by under-developing is not a good idea while shorter development results in a lower contrast. Just a normal development results in useful negatives, a bit dens with a normal contrast. Remember: you expose for the density and develop for the contrast. Digital pictures have a wide dynamic range for underexposure and almost no latitude for overexposure.

Read each others texts in groups of 4 and try to come up with as many images, and sounds that you can to keep the creative process going. Nothing is weird or soft or harsh, or shameful, or boring.

Een nieuw gezicht
Rowine de Kok

Kunst en cultuur bieden ons steun, herkenning en vreugde in het leven. Hoe zou Nederland er uit komen te zien wanneer onze speelruimte om nog te kunnen dromen en denken langzaam verdwijnt en echte in ons als mens steeds meer op de achtergrond komt te staan...

Een wereld waarin alleen de roze jas van een kind nog lijkt te kunnen kleuren.
