    LF Workshops?

    Hey Large Guys,

    Well I use a smaller camera (feeling a little inadequate here), but wanted to know if any of you know of LF Intro workshops in the New England/NYC area. I looked into ICP, but they don't have any.

    Regards, Art.

    ICP is talking with Gordon Hutchings about doing a workshop in NYC sometime next Spring as well

    There are several articles in the Free Articles section of the web site that might also be helpful.

    Michael Smith and Paula Chamlee do a very good course called "Vision and Technique" I have done it, and spent time with them both, can recommend it very highly. They are in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

    Art,

    I know that Richard Ritter has some workshops, but I don't know if any are for beginner LF use. Carl Weese is up there, his workshops are more for pt/pd printing, but they are worth a look. Maine Photographic Workshops runs a few each year that would probably be suitable.

    Look for some workshops at the Peters Valley Craft Education Center (northern New Jersey). They run a bunch each year, and should have an intro course.

    Look at your local community college, they sometimes have this type of mini-class to offer. If you are willing to go further afield, there are many, many to choose from.

    I do strongly encourage you to go the LF Conference in Springfield next year, as it will give you the opportunity to see lots of LF discussions, photographs, and equipment from vendors. There is no doubt that the vendors section is the best opportunity in the US to actually see and try out some of the equipment that you may have read about in the magazines or on the internet. That alone is worth the effort to get there.

    Springfield, Massachusetts. It's not too terribly far from New Haven, so it would be a great opportunity for Art to get LOTS of LF exposure with little effort.

    Art,

    Look at the local colleges. The advantage there is that you will be taking a course spread out over two or three months rather than a day or weekend. You have time to think and practice. Any good course will start simply and build in complexity over time. If you have difficulty at any stage you have time to get help and build your abilities.

    In this local area Cleveland-Akron_Kent, OH we have two two year colleges offering everything from Intro Photo, LF technical how to, platinum contact printing, enlarging negatives digitally for contact printing. In four year colleges Akron Univ has a photo major which includes Intro and Advanced LF as well as eight levels of Fine Art Photography. They even have 4x5 studio cameras and lighting for the students to use. Kent State Univ. has Photo Journalism. Courses at most of these places are offered day and evening to fit your schedule.

    In OH if you are over 60 (I'm 64) you pay fees only in a State funded college. The $836
    Advanced B&W course I am taking now costs the old guys $136. Even my wife says we can afford that.
