Discussion in ' Photographers ' started by M. Lointain , Dec 1, Share This Page. Thread Tools. Dec 1, 1. Messages: I found out from a friend of mine in San Diego that Gene Nocon died as the result of a heart attack on Nov. I knew Gene, although not that well.

I thought I would let others here know since I didn't see an announcement yet. He was a generous guy from what I recall. Dec 1, 2. Messages: 1, His "Photographic Printing" was and still is my favorite darkroom book.

Dec 1, 3. Dec 1, 4. Only That's not very old these days. I think the fstop Timer may have saved my darkroom career. Suddenly I'm able to print again. Mad props, Gene.

Dec 1, 5. Dec 1, 6. I have his Photographic Printing book as well, and his methods changed the way I printed at the time.

Still follow the style to this day - he made printing even more enjoyable for me. I always wanted one of his timers - sadly I still haven't snapped one up. RIP Gene - thanks for your contribution to the analogue world; you will be missed.

Dec 2, 7. Sad news. I have his book and have these words, from there, on my noticeboard. How will you know if the basic exposure print is right?

Photography is the study of light. The print, for me, must have this study, this feeling of light. There had to be light to take the picture.

The print should thus reflect the existence of light. Dec 2, 8. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? No, create an account now. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?

User Name Remember Me? Find all posts by ashfaque. Mike O'Pray. Thanks for the link Ashfaque. For anyone who decides to look at it I'll just say that it is a little over 30 mins long and covers more than f stop printing.


A tribute to a dear friend, business associate and genius in both analogue and digital photography. Gene Nocon, buddy, brother, friend and life long working partner to my photographic career deserves at least this page in my work. Meeting him shortly after graduating photographic college, privileged to be 'best man' at his wedding to Liz and to have spent the hours, days and months, years in the darkroom and then light room, as he called his digital career, was a privilege. His mastery and operation as a photographic genius was unsurpassed. Prints we created together were each and every one a masterpiece, through dint of his genius and expertise. As he once quoted, the true founder of photography must be the person who impressed the negative onto a durable captured surface. The printer is essentially a major part of the art.
