If you caught my article on digital printing on metals in the current issue, you know I am quite the fan of InkAID for hand-coating various substrates. The folks at InkAID just released a how-to video that might be of interest to you.

Sorry to have to share some sad news with you:
Leslie Stroebel, known as Professor Stroebel to some and “Dimples” to his family, passed away peacefully at the age of 92 on November 14, 2012. Born on March 11, 1920, he went from seeing the President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, waving to him on horseback at age 7, to embracing the digital age and using his computer to write books, stay in e-mail contact and Skype across the country with his two great-grandchildren. He had a long and wonderful life, witnessing change and advancements. Captain Stroebel was a veteran of World War II – a “Geodet” in the Air Force Photo Cadet program sent to map points in such diverse locations as Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Libya and Kenya, with exciting stories to tell about each. A well-liked and respected Professor Emeritus of Photography who taught countless students during his 44 years at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Dr. Stroebel wrote and co-authored photography reference books and texts used to teach generations of photographers. As one former student put it, “An icon of large format photography, he had a large format heart.”In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the charity of your choice or to the RIT Hollis Todd Scholarship Fund, https://www.rit.edu/development/giving/telefundgiving.php in his honor.
My office on the East coast is about to lose power due to the Hurricane…this will affect my email and web abilities & possibly phone, so I will see you back here on the other side of the storm!
Be safe everyone.

Pittsburgh Steel Worker -- W. Eugene Smith
Just got this in my mailbox:
Anyone who is a fan of photojournalism, or great photography that documents our daily lives, will want to attend this year’s W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography in New York City on October 17th at 7:00 p.m. More than $40,000 in grants will be presented to some of this year’s nominees, including the Howard Chapnick Grant for the Advancement of Photojournalism. The W. Eugene Smith Fund has extended an open invitation to attend the event and there is no fee. The evening is filled with incredible photography and presentations from some of the most respected journalists in the business today, including a keynote speech by Kimberly Dozier, correspondent for AP and author of Breaking the Fire. Dozier will also recount her time in Baghdad in 2006 when she was injured in a car bomb incident.
