    :surprised:

    I have a problem!!
    As some of you know, we "just" got a new photo house - equiped with studio - darkroom - gallery....
    Half a year, it has been used, and it works great!

    BUT - now we have just recieved new students....
    And between my photography line (analouge), and the new photojournalist line, we share about half of all the students in the school..

    I can count 28 students in my class!!! (And I have space for about 15..and 12 is a full class......):rolleyes:

    Students from Denmark, Iceland, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Hungary, Croatia, Albania(!!) and Canada..................(GREAT feeling that so many young people wants to join the analouge world, bu tit is also a little humbeling...)

    I have no idea how to solve this luxurary problem...

    I'll update when I know, whether I'll die of stress or whether I'll be a proud teacher.

    :rolleyes:

    In America this is easy to solve. You just raise your prices so you only have wealthy students.

    A good dose of single malt scotch should help with the perspective.

    Dry Gin Martini - keep the Gin in the freezer [with the film] and then you will not have to use ice in the shaker*. That way the Martini does not get poisoned by the water from the ice.

    good suggestions. Maybe I could invite my twin, and then pretend to be skizofrenic? OR just be skitzofrenic, and pretend my twin is here to help.....


    .. and NOW some whisky :smile:

    Emil, count yourself lucky. Overstressed, overtaxed, overworked, and lucky.

    I'm assuming your models are also your students. Please send some across the pond. Bill Barber

    That's one way. But good for future problems of this sort.

    Another way of going about it that might help in the present situation is to raise your voice a bit, so they can hear you in the back of the class.
