    Per,

    This year I will try to make it. But not sure if I will camp or motel it. Keep me informed. I will plan to bring along a few platinum/palladium prints to show, if that is ok.

    Platinum Prints would be great, Jan!

    Please bring some and help re-kindle an interest in the process!
    At this workshop there may be several people, who have never seen a Platinum print or know anything about the process!

    THE FREE JOSHUA TREE workshop is this coming weekend!!!

    Joshua Tree Free Workshop / Gettogether this weekend!


    Friday (for those who like to come early) + Saturday and Sunday.

    If you can please bring a bit of firewood (old growth preferred but we aren't choosy)!
    Be sure to bring warm clothing, a hat, sun glasses, sun screen, water and plenty of film.
    If you have work (prints - transparencies) of your own that you would like to share / show off please bring that as well.
    It could be prints or transparencies. If you bring transparencies it would be great to bring a small battery powered light table.

    Tentative schedule:


    Friday afternoon:

    Scouting shooting




    Saturday

    9:00 AM We meet
    As always please bring your equipment so we can learn what you are working with: tripod, camera etc...
    General info etc...

    9:30 David Wooten will show off his 7X17" sheet film camera and explain how he uses his 6X18cm camera in conjunction with his larger camera.

    10:30 Jan Pietrzak will show his Platinum prints and give a brief talk about Platinum printing in general

    11:15 Ill demonstrate pre-exposure and offer a few pointers about tripod usage, view camera workings etc...

    12:00 Frank Schlegel will show his Platinum / Palladium prints

    !2:30 or 12:45 - 1:30 we break for lunch

    Scouting - photography until 45 minutes after sunset.


    Dinner time! Alan has offered (as usual) to cook up a storm. Although he is not asking for anyone to pay I think it would be great to give him $5 per person.
    BRING A CHAIR FOR YOURSELF!!! and a flash light is good too for finding your way back to your campsite after dinner!

    Anyway we usually have a big campfire, eat a lot, tell stories and have a great time!



    Sunday:

    Photography / early shooting = before / during / after sunrise.

    9:30 or so at the campground we'll look at prints and transparencies.

    10:30 Environmental portraiture - how shooting portraits on location goes well with landscape photography. Using small reflectors and pre-exposure to get maximum shadow detail (for those "glowing" images).

    11:30 Questions - and hopefully good answers?

    12:15 lunch

    The afternoon is open; many people will be leaving for that for some long trip home.

    The rest of us may hang around - depending on weather etc. and do some photography in the afternoon.


    Please email me your car license, cell phone #, and time of arrival. Also please let me know if you plan to camp or live the high life = staying at a super deluxe motel in 29 palms or Joshua Tree!


    It will be fun!

    Per, I've got an 800 watt inverter hard-wired into my car. I'll bring my light box as well. As long as i'm parked withing 100ft of the campsite we can have power.
    Is there a particular group of campsites we plan to occupy?

    I will be bringing a couple of strobes and accessories and my Alien Bees Vagabond invertor...works for lights, not coffee pots.

    I'm trying to procure a local model to do some Env. Ports for me and her, on TFP basis. That is not confirmed yet. In case it becomes reality, if anyone's interested in also using her, let me know.
