Advanced B&W Craft
w/ Mark Citret
June 12-14, 2017
We’re thrilled to have Mark Citret back with us this year for another workshop! As you know, Photostock has a way of getting under your skin and Mark was compelled to join us once again as part of a cross-country photo excursion. Last year, his “Finding Your Vision” workshop was so popular that we’ve decided to build on it with and advanced two and a half day class that will include a darkroom element this year. Mark is one of the the premier printers around these days and to not get him into the workshop to show how it is done would be a huge mistake.
Class will begin on the evening of Monday, June 12 with a class intro and orientation at the Photostock Workshop. You will cover the three aspects of the class: exposure, film development and printing along with a lecture on exposure technique including Mark’s own version and simplification of the zone system. Basically reducing the cumbersome system to two basic procedures; one for “normal” contrast situations and the second for “high contrast” situations.
You will continue at sunrise on Tuesday, June 13 with fieldwork on location with exposure techniques to create good, working negatives. Later in the morning, you will return to the workshop for film development techniques and printing demonstrations that will continue into he afternoon.
On the final day, Wednesday, June 14, you will meet for some morning shooting and then return to the workshop for a day of printing with Mark where he will print both his own as well as selected student negatives and follow up with a workshop wrap up and question period by day’s end.
Keep in mind that this workshop will will run rain or shine, so equip yourself accordingly. It will also require carpooling and it is hoped those with more space might volunteer. There will also be a lunch break each day that is not included in the cost of the workshop. Feel free to pack a lunch or join us down the hill at the Moosejaw Junction.
Workshop Fee: $450.00 (includes general registration to Photostock 2017)
