    Darkroom practices Workshop with Les McLean

    Darkroom Workshop
    With Apug.org’s own
    Les McLean


    When: 27/28/29 of May 2006 (Memorial Day Weekend)
    Where: at my darkroom in Everman, Texas 76140
    Everman is on the out-skirts of Fort Worth, Texas
    On a good map this is just outside the Loop 820 on the
    South side of town. When you sign up we will provide a detailed map of the area.
    What will Les cover: This is a copy and paste from an email from Les where he says,

    I will cover:
    Split grade printing and printing with graded papers.
    f stop printing using RH Designs Stop Clock Pro which I will bring and I have one also
    Single, two bath and water bath development.
    The benefits of using different developer dilutions and variations in time.
    Pre and post flashing including burning in with white light using the RH Designs paper flasher.
    Burning and dodging.
    Toning using selenium and gold toners.
    If time allows perhaps one evening we can do some lith printing, this will be a fun night.
    Print Critique
    I will also bring negatives and prints so that the people can see what I print from and the final prints I make.
    I also enjoy using students negatives for my own demonstrations during the workshop for it is a better way for them to appreciate the methods that I'm teaching rather that me use a negative that I've print a thousand times. They can experience the thinking process that I apply to each image that I print for the first time and also the way that I apply the judgments that need to be made.
    It would also be nice to get out and expose some film with them but we have a lot to fit in, however, I'm happy to work as many hours as it takes so we can print through the evening is that is possible. A workshop is not a 9 to 5 experience in my book.

    Cost: $450 for the 3 days

    For those coming in from out of town there is a Quality Inn about one mile from the workshop and I am trying to get a group discount for workshop attendees.

    So, here is a great opportunity to hone your darkroom skills with other like-minded people. Please make your plans now first come first served.

    If there is only one workshop you do in your lifetime, it has to be Les McLean's. He is a joy to be around, and extremely good at what he does. Not only can he demonstrate the techniques in a easy to understand manner, but he goes the extra bit and teaches you how to be the best you can be at printing. Any opportunity you have to be at one of Les' workshops take it. You will never be disappointed that you did.

    Hi Lee! This is an awesome opportunity, and I am definitely interested, but I have to do some research to get a handle on flight, room, and other expenses.

    Here are some questions: is there public transportation from the airport to the Quality Inn? will there be transportation daily from the Quality Inn to your darkroom for workshop participants? do you know what this might cost? lastly, what kind of deposit do you need and when?

    Thanks for your help!

    Krystyna,

    I can arrange for transportation to and from the airport if need be. I can also arrange transportation to and from the motel to the darkroom. Free I would like at least half around the first of Jan and the rest the first of May.
