    It was proposed to me so I thought I would run with it. I got no problems doing a mixed workshop either. I would be more than happy to do a workshop in your area also mqb74. There are still some women that are not as outgoing as they need be also.

    thanks Eric well said.

    It sounds like fun, but I'm not in New England.

    I would attend a women only workshop if there were one in the Dallas area... there's a dynamic in mixed male/female groups that impacts my ability to learn. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's not there when I'm learning with a group of other women. Each person is different. There are many women out there who will disagree with me. Just my $0.02. BTW I'm the only female engineer on a team with 17 men. Not only that, but they're all also republicans and love digital photography.

    A "shooting" workshop can be held here at the VPC (there would have to be some kind of "donation" to the Center) or a darkroom workshop might happen at Whitey's school depending on scheduling. Actually, scheduling will play a part in having it here at the VPC also.
    Keep both venues in mind when planning this event.

    Eric, very well said......

    Being fortunate enough to go out and work on a project with Lee, I can tell you it would be well worth the time spent. We have had lots of fun, the BS level runs off the scale sometimes and most of all we learn from each other, but when questions come up we frequently differ to Lee for help.

    So why not have all three workshops....one for the ladies, one for the gents and one for both.

    For those wondering why a ladies only, look no futher than the Santa Fe workshops, they have been doing these for a while now.

    Good luck with it Lee...hope you have so many you have to do 2 or three worshops to fit everyone in.

    If someone announced a workshop from which women would be barred outright, I'm sure he would be accused of discrimination. Personally, I think a person should be able to offer a workshop for either men or women if he cares to, but why the double standard?

    there is NO double standard. I am thinking of offering this women only workshop as one of many. Hopefully, there will be more workshops in the not too distant future of all kinds and for all people.

    Lee, let me know when the next one you have in the Ft. Worth area. New England is too far for me as much as I would love to see New England. I don't care if it is all women or mixed, although all women sounds like fun. Perhaps that is why it was suggested.
