    womens only workshop in the New England area

    Hi all,

    there has been some interest in a "Womens only workshop in the New England area". I am willing to fly up to the area and lead the workshop if there are enough willing participants. This could be a darkroom workshop or a shooting workshop. My question is are there enough women that want to attend somethng like this? PM me or post on this thread and lets talk about it.

    PM me at lee

    How 'new' is the England we are talking about. Is it anywhere near France?

    As a woman in New England, I'd totally go for it! Either way, shooting or darkroom, or a bit of both!

    Bethe? Krystyna?

    Anyone from the New York or DC area could maybe come up? Now if they could come up with transporter technolgy, we could beam Nicole over, too!

    Dave, I'll pour the dektol as you stir.

    Could you imagine the hell I'd get if I announced a "Man" only photo workshop? Grin.

    I'd be interested in this, especially the darkroom workshop, but probably couldn't swing it until late spring early summer because of work and family things going on right now.

    I'd get the food and drinks for the participants and help out in any way.

    OK, I gotta ask, why "women only"?

    I'm in Minnesota, so don't have a vested interest one way or another in this New England workshop. And I can understand how it can be intiminating for someone to be in a group that knows a lot more than they do or - even worse - THINKS they know a lot more than they do.

    So I see how, in certain traditionally male dominated fields, it can be intiminating for a woman. But surely photography is not such an area. And the women who participate on this site certainly seem as knowledgeable as the men who participate.

    I'm not arguing against it and I'm not trying to initiate a debate. I just am curious as to why it was proposed and seems to have attracted interest.

    The mere fact that you had to ask the question explains why there is interest among the gals. All power to them.
