    Are you involved with the workshop? Just curious, as you're not listed as one of the instructors.

    The workshop does sound interesting - it's a definitely possibility, but I have to wait until my job situation stabilizes, hopefully in the next few weeks....

    You will have so much fun if you take this workshop. Bruce is a bundle of energy so get sleep before hand, and sleep once you get home. While at that workshop, you will learn so much about film and what are the capabilities combined with the zone system. This is a highly reccommended workshop.

    I've attended Bruce's workshop before, so I know of what you speak. I averaged about 4 hours of sleep a night in the tent I setup behind the classroom :D

    Why wouldn't they just contact Bruce directly? Bruce is a member of APUG BTW. I too have taken instruction from him and my comments can be read in his latest brochure I believe. He's a blast and so knowlegeable.

    robert are you the guy that was selling some used Omega gear thru Bruce a couple of years ago?

    That was the lab I was with. I was trying to get the equipment to good homes and not to the local landfill as some of the equipment did go.
    Bruce is having me do this as its a Portland Photographers Forum Workshop. We use the portion of the proceeds to buy use cameras, clean them up and give them to a local high school. Where the students want to explore the art of photography but can't afford cameras. So far PPF has given out 6 manual cameras, film and chemistry.
