photography hijinx

a very good photographer chase jarvis has a monthly 'internet tv talk-show/photography thing' that broadcasts out of his blog. apparently it's watched in over 100 countries but is out of seattle. they also feature guest artists: this episode ish is in the house first answering boring questions but then getting his photo taken by a camera the size of a truck using a type of photographic technique know only to modern day alchemist ian ruhter. we actually see the entire process from start to end product (it's about an hour long) as the do a portrait using some kind of process using silver. i do not pretend to understand the arcane black magick his technique draws its powers from, but as you can see from the end result (and ruhter's other work) it's wicked. when i have time i'm going to check out some of the other episodes, which look really useful and inspirational for 'creatives'. action begins at 1hour 32 minutes.
