Ive been invited to be one of 25 artists on the Fall Foliage Art Studio Tour here in southwestern New Hampshire on Saturday and Sunday, October 9 and 10. Sounds like an excuse for a party! Ill open my studio to visitors, with traditional prints on display (Brooks Jensen or inventory reduction pricing: $25 each for 5x7 or 8x10 mounted black and white prints), but that doesnt feel like enough, so heres an invitation to photographers who might like to visit. Well have good food, lots to photograph on my land (147 acres of New England woods and rock walls, on what is traditionally the peak fall foliage weekend here). Ill also have maps to nearby places to photograph. Come try an 8x10, or try large format. Ill have cameras and film (2 - 8x10s: Norma and Alice,my Sinar and Ritter, and 4x5 Baby Wista). Have a look at my darkroom and studio space. Maybe we can induce visitors to pose for a large format portraits. Moses, my African Gray Parrot, is excited, too. Ill have a video/CD sale: Camera Repair in the Field with Richard Ritter DVD video, normally $24, on sale for $15. The Richard Ritter Ultra-Large Format Camera Owners Manual DVD video, normally $15, on sale for $12. Finely Focused: Mechanics and Creativity in Large Format Photography, 309 pages on CD-ROM, normally $25, on sale for $20. Swanzey Rural Character, the award-winning documentary, $5. Richard Ritters on board to be here. I can probably convince him to bring over one of his ULFs for folks to put hands on. He thinks he may have an 11x14, too. Come hang out, swap stories, compare cameras, try something new, but mostly, have a good time, eat, drink and be merry. Hope to see you. And if anyone has more ideas for what we could do, let me know.
