    Right. I haven't done a book. I did get to see a bunch of Eddy's photos in June. I enjoyed them, and spending time with Eddy.

    Perhaps no one was confused, but I thought it was a worth noting that you are the one with all the old film crap :)

    Thanks to all of the great SBHonline members for your interest in my photo book and nice comments. Your response is more than I could have expected.
    For all of the orders since late Thursday, I will be going to the Fed EX store Monday afternoon to get them shipped out. I will not ship again until Friday.
    Then, I go back to St. Barth for a new round of photo work on Dec. 29th. Orders then will be transferred to Amazon. com. The price will go up a bit because of all of the fees they add on.
    I wish everyone the best for the Holidays!

    Picked up a copy while on island last week. Stunning. It's difficult to capture scenes in a way that truly provides the viewer with a sense of what it really looks and feels like to be in a setting. They got it done with this book. Outstanding. Very pleased with it.

    Thanks, Diane. I thought about it, and even had some drum scans/prints done, to see how they looked. They couldn't match the originals. There was no good way to capture the paper texture, and depth of the original. I use a few different silver gelatin papers to get the results I want. Each has a unique look. Some are neutral... some warm... (and Ilford just last week released a cold tone paper!). Add the various toning techniques I use, and it becomes even more difficult to get each image to look true to the original, within the constraints of using a single digital paper surface for a book.
    Another reason is purely philosophical. Printed in a darkroom, each one is unique, and a purchaser owns a photograph unlike another purchaser's. Hand painting adds to the singularity. Even when I try to mix paints to match a previous print, there's always a bit of variation (and I'm pretty good at mixing them).
    A lot of sbhonline members have my work hanging in their homes and, I'd like to think, appreciate the uniqueness of their particular image. It's one of the great joys I get in producing work the way I do...

    The book is beautiful!
    I was pleasantly surprised about how quickly the book arrived after ordering it, as it was an additional Christmas gift for my husband.
    Looking at the pictures definitely warms us, as the temperatures here in Kansas City have been quite cold recently (0-9 degrees is not usual or appreciated!)
    Thanks again for the great book of photographs of one of our favorite places!

    I have greatly appreciated all of the nice comments on this site about my book. Tomorrow I'm fortunate to be able to return to St. Barth and so my direct sales of the book end today at noon. Amazon.com now has it and will ship it directly to new buyers.

    The link to the book is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FL0ZWT8

    Because of all of the fees Amazon charges to fulfill orders the price has increased.

    A special discount of 15% will be given to SBHonline members. Enter 15SBHONL at checkout to get the discount.

    Thank you for your support and I wish all the best for the New Year.
