The GEH bromide workshops have finished and they were a great success! Mark Osterman has been sending me regular reports with pictures. Beautiful pictures. The dry plates made by the class are wonderful. For anyone hesitating on getting started on handmade silver gelatin -- paper or dry plate or film -- there is now absolutely no technical excuse :). The recipes are here, the materials are here, and the examples of success are growing by the day. So, get started! Or, if you already have, go bold and show the world. There are a lot of calls for 'alternative process' shows. Publicity is our friend. It is the only way to create awareness. With awareness will come community, and more information and opportunites.
You may want to see Mark's Facebook page. He has posted a number of pix there. Also, some of the plate work is starting to appear here.
It was an enjoyable two weeks with wonderful new (and old) friends. Many were APUG members and heard about the workshop from APUG.
We are planning for 2014. So much to teach and so little time! The 4 of us will be starting our planning on Tuesday at GEH.
If anyone happens to be in New Orleans this month, I hope you can stop by the New Orleans Photo Alliance gallery to see my print in a show juried by Christopher James. http://www.neworleansphotoalliance.org/exhibitions.php
It is a contact print of a handmade Whole Plate format glass dry plate negative on handmade KCl gaslight paper. http://www.thelightfarm.com/Map/TLFT...-emulsions.htm
