    A weekend of free presentations on a variety of alternative photographic processes will be held the weekend of Sept. 12-13 at the Washington State University Vancouver campus.
    Photographers of all skill levels are invited to participate in all or any part of the events, which will include demonstrations on photogravures, carbon printing, optically enlarged negatives, cyanotypes, bromoils and other traditional processes, as well as print sharing and a gallery exhibit.
    The weekend is being organized by the Pacific Northwest members of the Analog Photography Users Group. This is the second annual APUG-NW gathering; the first was held last fall in Newport.
    All lectures and demonstrations will be held in the Multi-Media Center (VMCC) at WSU-Vancouver, 14204 NE Salmon Creek Ave., Vancouver, WA. No advance registration is necessary, but interested photographers are asked to contact organizer Robert Brummitt at robert8x10@hotmail.com so space requirements can be accommodated.

    Hi All,

    Robert entered a typo in his list of activities. I will be giving a presentation on Artisan Silver Gelatin Emulsion Making, not printing. I will discuss and present examples of Dry Plate photography and handmade b&w contact printing paper.

    Hope to see all PNW'ers there!
    Denise

    I am looking forward to your presentation, Denise! The idea of making one's own material is exciting. It harkens back to the days when a painter made his/her own brushes and paint, and a woodworker and sculpturer made his/her own tools to carve the wood and chisel the stone. Who knows, perhaps I will someday make my own wet or dry plates for use to make my carbon prints.
