    Midwest Portfolio Showing January 28, 2012

    Get your portfolio ready. The Midwest Large Format Asylum will hold it's fifth portfolio review on Saturday, January 28th, 2012 at the Best Western Indian Oaks Motel in Chesterton, Indiana. If you love images made with large format capture, this will be the place to be.

    Many participants arrive a day ahead on Friday for an afternoon of shooting as Chesterton is only a few miles from the Lake Michigan shoreline and the Indiana Dunes. Many others come just on Saturday for this free event.

    We will expect to show between 15 and 25 portfolios. If there is time, we have also offered short talks on such subjects as carbon printing, mixing your own chemistry and creativity, to name a few.

    Photos from our previous years "lockdowns" and more up to date information can be found in the FORUM section on our website:

    www.midwestlargeformat.com

    Hope you will consider joining us. Large format photographers from Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio will be joining us.

    I didn't see any portfolios in the FORUM section. Does one have to register to view them?

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Yep. There's no cost involved, nor any other commitment, and Frank won't sell your e-mail address to fund his strange addition to Efke 25 film.

    I believe you can click on the Gallery button in the forum section and see posted photos without registering.(most of the forum topics are only visible with registration)

    I'm greatly looking forward to this event and plan on driving down Friday afternoon/evening this year instead of getting up super early to drive down Saturday morning like I usually do.
    The prints are always fabulous and it's just an all around good time.

    Yes, Canadians are welcome. I believe there is even a forum member from Italy so you don't really have to be in the Midwest

    The forum gallery mostly has images from our monthly outings. We go to someplace pretty cool every 3rd Saturday of every month...some are one day trips, others are overnights. There are also a few individual images other photographers post from their private outings.

    Not all of our LF group have the equipment to scan & post (after all, they are film people), and some just think that too much quality is lost from the original print to post at 72 dpi & don't post, so if it portfolios you want to see, the real deal will be at our showing in January. I suppose in a way, that is why we get together to show prints. There's no judging ......just enjoying.

    You do have to register on the website to see the full site content. It's free and secure.

    It's great you are thinking of coming. Here are some specifics:

    - You would make your motel arrangements directly with the motel
    - It is a free event (although it is not unheard of to have a donation box)
    - Eveybody pays for their own food
    ------usually we go out as a group to a Chilies for supper Friday & Saturday night
    ------there is a nice diner in town for breakfast (I believe it is Peggy Sue's)
    ------the day of the review, we take lunch orders as you arrive & cater it in
    - we usually start at 9:00 am & go until all portfolios are seen
    - usually we draw numbers out of a hat to determine the order
    - we will provide the viewing lights & light boxes for transparencies

    we are an informal group and are open to all comments & suggestions. If I had to guess, I would say our average number of portfolios is around 17 or 18. Turnout depends on weather as it is January and roads can get bad. There are always a few people who come just to look & enjoy so my guess is the average number of people attending is around 20-25.

    Hope that helps.

    Rick
