Sorry you have-to-be in Zion that next weekend. It should be good and cold.
We saw the first dusting of snow on the Sierras this last weekend, twenty or so people saying how are we getting home. Some of the passes where closed on sunday.
Maybe, just maybe Kerik, William and I need to do a week long P/P workshop some time. I am sure we could find a place like Aggies house for 15 to 20 students it could be fun. Just a thought.
If this is the approach you like, I beleive Kerik would be the best choice. I dont know Jan (hell for that matter I dont know Kerik personally) so I cannot comment on his instruction, but everything I have heard from Kerik's workshops has always been glowing praise with no sensitometry..

Last, pt/pd is a bit hard to master, but it is not all that hard, nor is it balck magic, all that requires is a little stick ot it and in no time you will be making wonderful prints.
Thanks to Will, Jorge, Jan and William Laven for your kind words. All greatly appreciated. And I am confident one could get fine instruction from any of us.

If you (or anyone) is interested, contact me directly or you can sign up on the Ansel Adams Gallery website (www.anseladams.com). As of last friday there were still a couple of slots open.
Thanks again. The kindness is appreciated!
That's a hell of an idea. I'm starting to look for a good workshop in 2005 right now, myself. If you guys do that I'll gladly fill up one space...

Brian, I'm in the process of working out the bugs in my way of printing in plat, plad. No problems so far even without fancy densitometer equipment. It is really not tough with lots of ways to overcome variables alone the process. Give it a try although not easy there is a short learning curve.
Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!
Missed this post while out of town. Brian, as you know I have been working on some Ziatypes and for me, it was the best way to get into this type of process. The small kit from Bostick and Sullivan is less than $80 US and after I built the proto-type light source for UV have to say it is not only fun, but starting to wish I had larger negatives (currently using 4x5). Can't say I have mastered anything, but have gotten some pretty good prints. Prints in the mail right now for some solid input.
While I would love to get a good workshop in, just not possible right now. The Zia's really are not hard - if I figured out what to do (with lots of input from this site BTW) someone with your talent should get it with no problem. What is really cool to me is these are some really old process and still just a blast to work with. Feels like you are interacting with the print, just in a different way than silver prints.
Have never met Kerik, so can not say first hand what a workshop is like..but I like his work enough to have one of his works hanging on my wall.
