Peter & All,
I am definitely interested in a darkroom/platinum workshop and a field trip to Bash Bish, March/April are still the best times for me, I'll wait to hear from the rest of the gang!!!
Happy New Year!
As I mentioned previously I'm not the big Portrait person but am more than willing to show up and spend time with people in rotation to show them the workings of a view camera. Not everyone will be sitting or taking portraits at the same time; therefore those who might be interested to try their hand with a view camera will have plenty of time to play...
For darkroom We need to clarify what is most important for people to want to learn, see, or do.
For Plat it would be good for everyone to be able to make an enlarged negative and a print of their own. This would take an entire day. If people just wanted to see the process that take less time. Maybe you could all bring an overly dense negative that will print for platinum. Cannot cut corners there.
Start throwing out ideas everyone.....
(almost went to BashBish today it was so beautiful outside!)
Happy New Year everyone,
I have some studio lighting equipment (lights,stands, softbox, umbrella, flash meter, canvas background, etc.) that I can bring to a workshop if the date works out. I love shooting portraits, and while not my day job, do take the occasional portraits for pay. Here's a portfolio of studio portraits that I put together last year:
ok, a stupid question...what the hell is "BashBish?"
Yeah! I apparently missed this, too! What's BashBish, again??

Happy New Year, everyone!!

Nice website Art! also...I wonder if I could bring (or send) my "future" daughter in law as she is getting into portrait photography and would love to gain some practical experience? She isn't an apug member yet...but did buy Sean's mamiya equipment!
Hey! This sounds like a party! All we need is a specific time and date. I'll bring a couple of cameras, a couple of polaroid backs, some lights and a nice big drop background... oh, and a lot of curiosity and a wealth of inexperience. Good enough?
i'd love to join the party, but my child rearing activities might take my weekend. when a time/date is figured out, i'll see if i can make it.
soundss like a blast
