forenote: I posted a general thread yesterday - which was too hasty. This and the others supersede it. Luther Gerlach is one of the foremost practitioners of the process - in terms of both practice and theory - he is recognized and used by the Getty Museum for their demonstrations and workshops in the medium. As an interesting side note - he is also the owner and operator of the world's largest 'mammoth' wet plate collodion camera, which you may be able to get a glimpse of while attending the workshop. We will also be offering a special 'mammoth plate' workshop with Luther and his camera. The Workshop will be both a technical and practical workshop concentrating on wetplate technique, appropriate to all, from those who need an introduction to the process through seasoned 'professionals'. The workshop will focus on the topic of the human figure - and a model will be provided for shots the students take. Luther will show some of his figurative work - and we will also look at some precedents in this genre, specifically concerning the wet plate photograph. Lunch will be served while students' plates are setting up and we will explore students' results at the end of the session. Workshop fee is $275 - and a further $20 off if purchased online - and/or 15% off if purchased online. The workshop will be hosted at our gallery in Los Angeles, CA on May 1, May 15 and June 12, 2010. SPACE WILL BE VERY LIMITED. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!
