this is a WORK shop!!!
There will be activities every day!
Every morning we will go shooting at a new location from about 6AM to Noon.
In the afternoons we will have discussions, presentations of various topics such as marketing of your work using Internet, Social Media, gallery representations and self publishing of limited edition prints and books. There will be print reviews (in group setting and individually). There will be demonstrations on pre-exposure to control contrast, and there will be advice on how to make stronger compositions that reflect the philosophical content of the subject matter.
Portraiture - large format with daylight? Or electronic studio flash? You will have the opportunity to do both. With your large format camera!
And you will discover that a portrait is no different that a landscape!
In the evening you will have the opportunity to process roll and sheet film using Pyro Rollo from Bostick - Sullivan and alkaline fix TF-4 from Photo Formulary.
After film processing you will get the opportunity to make a few Platinum - Paladium prints on Arches Platine paper.
All materials (except film) will be provided.
We have secured very reasonable group rates at a small local motel!
All in all this will be a fun, high energy workshop (mentally - and physically if you like)!
Finally APIS 2011 takes place in Santa Fe from October 6 - 8. If you plan to attend that event you can stay a few extra days and participate in our workshop!
This workshop is close to filling up now. If you want to participate please sign up ASAP.
