    Carbon Workshop – Yosemite – April 14-18

    Just a reminder, if you’re interested in this workshop, Yosemite will guarantee a housing slot (Yosemite’s Lodge at the Falls) if you reserve a spot in the workshop before this coming Thursday at midnight (Feb. 26.)

    Per the AA Gallery’s info the workshop will include:
    - making prints using carbon tissue pre-made by the instructor [Vaughn Hutchins], but will quickly move to making their own custom carbon tissue which best matches their negatives and images.
    - the opportunity to photograph in Yosemite Valley during instructor led field sessions and be able to process the film exposed that day specifically for carbon printing.
    - for those without a large format camera who wish to experiment with using one, two 5x7 view cameras will be available for use during the field sessions. For those without large format or digital negatives, film will be supplied to work with.
    For full details go to:

    Good luck and that's good information for the future. I guess you can reserve camping space?

    Hodgdon Meadows campground has spaces available, it is not in valley though, it is at the hwy 120 entrance to yosemite, about 45 min from the valley. I've sometimes gotten camping sites, a week before I go. A few people cancel in time to get some of their money back.

    Wayne, the AA Gallery and I plan on making this workshop an annual adventure...we'll see if demand meets our expectations. So far I have people signed up from the ends of the country -- from Florida and Hawaii. My ego would like to think that these folks are coming all this way just for me...but the reality of it is --- who could pass up any workshop in a place like Yosemite?! Especially in the Spring!

    In 1992 I taught myself carbon printing from a magazine article. It is not all that complicated of a process...as far as alternative processes go. And in my biased opinion, it is one of the most beautiful ones, as well as one of the cheapest and most permanent.

    It took me two years to start producing prints I was proud of. This was before the internet took off and became the source of information it is today...so there was no one locally and no one on-line to ask questions and to help me figure out what I was doing wrong (or right!). So this workshop will give the participants a giant jump start on the process, and they will go home with prints, knowledge and experience to shape this process into their personal mode of expression.

    Hope to see you some year in the future!

    Vaughn

    Ted...arriving on a Monday, I am optimistic that you'll find a spot to camp...but I will still keep my fingers crossed!

    I have sent a request to Sara at the AA Gallery to see if they can guarantee some campsites or priority on the waiting list. I'll let y'all know what I hear back.

    If you are attending this workshop or would like to attend this workshop and sharing a room would make it easier ... please PM me ... we have some people who really, really want to do this but lodging could be an issue for them.

    If you're in the same position as Ted ... will or would like to attend but need to do the camping option, please PM me so we can let the staff at Yosemite know how many people are in that situation and maybe we can get some guaranteed campsites.
