    Silver Gelatin in Vancouver, WA.

    Hi All,

    Any of you from the Pacific Northwest hopefully know that we will be having our 2nd Annual APUG-PNW meeting at UW Vancouver in the second weekend of September. There will be a whole host of great presentations, primarily on alternative processes. Any of them will make the trip to Vancouver worthwhile. In addition, I will be discussing silver gelatin emulsion making, arguably the newest addition to the 'old' processes. I will have a range of examples and we will make sure there's time for questions.

    Hope to see you there,
    Denise

    Remember people - Vancouver, Washington, is across the river from Portland, Oregon, and not in Canada.

    I think I'll be there, Denise.

    No, Captain Vancouver had it moved to make his maps work better.

    The Mukilteo Lighthouse is on a point of land Capt. Vancouver called Rose Point because of all the beautiful roses they saw there when they landed in 1792, now it's a parking lot and a ferry landing with a lot of smoke and asphalt.

    I was hoping to see someone make a glass plate negative, I have an 11x14 wood glass plate film holder with the two sheets of glass in it and another one that needs a little wood to close it up. I think using a glass plate to make a Carbon Transfer print might be quite an accomplishment.

    You do, it's just not Vancouver, Washington.

    It seems a lot of people get the two confused. Having been to both of them, I'm not sure exactly how that could actually happen...

    Curt - I can show you how to make a glass dry plate sometime. And I know that Denise will talk about that this meeting.

    Here you go! Remember,too, that there is a PNW Group on APUG (http://www.apug.org/forums/groups/u-s-pacific-northwest-regional-wa-id-state-jefferson.html) . Be sure it check it out regularly for local photo info. PNW photographers are a fantastic and active bunch of folks, and a better gender mix than often found among traditional photographers.

    A weekend of free presentations on a variety of alternative photographic processes will be held the weekend of Sept. 12-13 at the Washington State University Vancouver campus.
    Photographers of all skill levels are invited to participate in all or any part of the events, which will include demonstrations on photogravures, carbon printing, optically enlarged negatives, cyanotypes, bromoils and other traditional processes, as well as print sharing and a gallery exhibit.
    The weekend is being organized by the Pacific Northwest members of the Analog Photography Users Group. This is the second annual APUG-NW gathering; the first was held last fall in Newport.
    All lectures and demonstrations will be held in the Multi-Media Center (VMCC) at WSU-Vancouver, 14204 NE Salmon Creek Ave., Vancouver, WA. No advance registration is necessary, but interested photographers are asked to contact organizer Robert Brummitt at robert8x10@hotmail.com so space requirements can be accommodated.
    The workshop schedule for Saturday:
    9 a.m.— "Darkroom Cookbook III" with Steve Anchell of Salem. Ore.
    10 a.m.—"Bromoils" with Terry Halstead of Beaverton, Ore.
    11 a.m.—"Artisan Silver Gelatin Emulsion Making" with Denise Ross of Newport, Ore.
    1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.—"Carbon Printing Demonstration" with Vaughn Hutchins of Arcata, CA.
    4 p.m.—"Enlarged Negatives and Cyanotypes" with Michael Stathatos of Washougal, Wash.
    5 p.m.—"Photogravures" with Russ Dodd of Portland, Ore.
    On Sunday, participants are invited to join in a field trip with Anchell, who will show alternative view camera uses. The rest of Sunday’s schedule includes the following:
    10-11:30 a.m.—Participants' print viewing
    2 p.m.—"Photographic Artist Books" with Laura Russell of Portland, Ore.
    3 p.m.—"Tintypes" with Susan Seubert of Portland, Ore.
    4 p.m.—Panel discussion on “The Resurgence of Alternative Processes.”

    The PNW meeting is too tightly scheduled for me to do a full dry plate demo, but I will have enough materials and examples with me for you to easily get the idea of how it is done. Looking forward to seeing you. Denise

    Any idea of what the crowds will be like, how many people attended in Newport?
