Explanation for my Absence

GREETINGS, I have not posted here in a very long time, for which I apologize. Soon after I made my last posting, my mother unexpectedly passed away, which was a shock and a terrible hardship for my family and myself.

During that time, I was overburdened with moving to a new home, while trying to fix up both the new house and repairing the old house, which had fallen into disrepair. I simply hadn't had the heart to blog, as it was such a sad and difficult time, and I lost my almost daily habit of writing and photographing.

Many people have asked me to take this up again, and I thank everyone who has giving me support, encouragement, and prayers.

  3. Dear Mr. Abeln, I only just found your blog as I was trying to find a way to imitate autochromes digitally. I am so impresses with your research. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I am not that sophisticated in terms of color spaces. My background is in printmaking and I have been doing copperplate photogravure for the past 15 years. I have done a few 4 color photogravures with some success but I would love to try your method. So the question I have is, would I process my image in your old autochrome icc file and then switch to the sCMY icc file before I split my channels to create my trans-positives?

    I'm sorry you lost your mother. I too lost my mother last August and it is a life changing event - cathartic. Thank you for your time.

  5. So sorry for your loss...Please let me know how you collect the photos that are posted on your site. I see a picture of St. Alphonsus "Rock" Church at Easter and was wondering how you got the photo?
