Some weeks ago I posted a poll for a projected workshop for late summer or early autumn 2006. The response indicated that most respondents wished to have a workshop to depict the mining towns of the southwest. This choice was followed by the Great Sand Dunes NM near Alamosa, Colorado. This is to announce that we will conduct a workshop during late September to early November...actual dates will be announced soon. Paricipation will be limited to eight participants. Attendance will be on a first come, first served basis. I encourage those who may be interested in attending to PM me early. We will begin the workshop process before the actual day of the workshop by having each of the participants complete and return a questionaire so that we can determine where we can be of maximum benefit to each of the participants. The first evening will be for portfolio reviews and discussion of your individual photographic goals. This will further enable us to help the participants achieve their photographic vision. I want to begin by stressing that this will be a workshop...participants should come prepared to spend long hours photographing, learning, laughing, and enjoying the remnants of a time past. This workshop will emphasize actually photographing. Topics covered would be determining proper exposure, film developing considerations to coincide with lighting and exposure. This workshop will cover seeing photographically....how to impart depth to your images and how to produce exposures that express your vision. This will be consistent with nurturing and furthering the growth of your individual photographic efforts. We will strive to have our efforts address the individual needs of each of the participants. Because of time constraints, there will be no darkroom procedures covered in this workshop. I will be conducting additional darkroom workshops beginning in the winter of 2006-2007. Dates, costs, and other details of all workshops are being finalized and will be announced soon.
