Gene Nocon

It was simply a form of “hook” to get you viewing. Dec 1, 3. His mastery and operation as a photographic genius was unsurpassed. Find all phofography by David Brown. The photpgraphy is essentially a major part of the art. I just couldn’t work out where he stood.

No, create an account now. The print, for me, must have this study, this feeling of light. His Nocon timer itself revolutionized the darkroom, enabling photographers to deepen their expertise.

He was that in droves. This is fair enough but then towards the end he seemed to regret the passing of darkroom art in a kind of end of a Golden era scenario and blames current photography teachers for the darkroom’s demise He just seemed to be facing both ways at the same time.

Your name or email address: I went to a party Saturday and took two rolls of film that I developed last night ,and I am going in to my darkroom today to print them up ,that’s what its all about ,what ever way you want to do it its up to you ,but as long as you are happy with the finished print that is all that matters.


I may have learned a lot in our darkroom times together technically but I also learned the art of selfless action phtography espoused over all the time I knew him.

He was a generous guy from what I recall. That is why he was able to work with Royalty, becoming photo mentor to one of them as much as an inspiration to taxi drivers, rank amateurs and professionals alike.
