    Workshop Description

    This Monday to Friday workshop offers the beginning to intermediate film-based photographer an intense immersion into the basic and advanced processes for film photography with basic tools and without a darkroom. You’ll explore materials, methods, and expressive approaches through a series of guided, hands-on challenges designed to increase your technical ability and visual awareness. Take part in classroom exercises, studio sessions and field work in stunning locations 10 miles out to sea on beautiful Monhegan Island, Maine. The workshop will include lecture, interactive discussions and projects, and an independent project you’ll design and execute yourself under the guidance and encouragement of the instructor.

    I wish people would speak plain, concise, and clear English. I really don't get any of this.

    What exactly don't you understand? We're going to be learning how to shoot with black and white film cameras and process without a darkroom for 5 days on a beautiful island.

    Constructive criticism would be appreciated more than a generalized negative comment.

    Well, I too had difficulties in understanding what this workshop is about. The problem with your description is that it is very generalized.

    I can only assume you are going to use a Jobo for darkroom less processing of various formats?

    Bob,

    Jobo and Paterson tanks mostly. We'll be using mostly medium and large format cameras; developing in daylight tanks; scanning and printing negatives on an inkjet or contact printing with an alternative process.

    I am in the process of writing a more specific syllabus, but I guess I need to go back and re-write the main paragraph with smaller words....

    That is a smart way to run a workshop, just need a loading room and basic chemical.

    good luck.

    This would neat. So would Photostock. Still, I'll keep an eye on the calendar and the pocketbook.

    So, here's a bit more detail, and I will be updating the pdf syllabus on my web site soon!

    We will use 35mm, medium and large format cameras to take photos on Monhegan Island, while learning the basics of film photography—from loading cameras and selecting film through film development to film scanning and printing via inkjet and alternative contact print processes like VanDyke Brown. Instead of a darkroom, we'll be using daylight tanks to process film in the studio on the island. Only the loading of film holders and daylight tanks will have to be done in the dark.
    Alternating with the learning basic theory of film photography and working in the "darkroom", we will take daily hikes to the extraordinary locations that Monhegan Island provides.
