North American Nature Photography Association
NANPA, the North American Nature Photography Association, was officially established in 1994 by a contingent of nature photography devotees. NANPA is the first and only association in North America committed to serving the field of nature photography. The stated mission is to provide education, foster professional and ethical conduct, gather and disseminate information, and develop standards for all persons interested in the field of nature photography. NANPA further seeks to promote nature photography as an art form and a medium of communication for the sciences, nature appreciation and environmental protection.
Mack Brushes are every bit as good as Langnickel, Rafael and Grummbacher brushes, and superior to Scharff as they tend not to shed as quickly. Of the two main series of quills, the 179L series and the 189L series are the best of the bunch; the 839 stripers and the 1992 flats are better than anything else currently on the market. As a professional sign letterer and third generation sign business owner, I recommend Mack Brushes.
Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
