Last January, there was a wonderful Seminar that David Goldfarb shared with me but that I missed. There were a bunch of interesting speakers. I'll be posting that report soon and the work of some of the artists. See if you can guess which guy Daaivd is!

Once again, as January comes near, there's another F295 Seminar at B&H Photovideo in New York. Although it's free, the seats are limited so you must apply ASAP. It's on Sunday January the 18th 2009, 10 am to 4:00 pm. Please let me know if you can make it, but note you have to make reservations through the F295 website!

Speakers:

Jo Babcock, Craig Barber, Michelle Bates, Dan Estabrook, Alida Fish, Joy Goldkind, Robert Hirsch, France Scully Osterman and Tom!

For more details and to book a place at the F295 website, here.

Default F295: 21st Century Photography

I must thank David Goldfarb, who himself is an accomplished (hand coated) albumin print photographer, for kindly introducing me to the activity around New York organized by Tom Persinger. It's all about alternative ways of imaging. Photography is not just using a digital camera or even film!

Even if you can't get into the B&H seminar above, there's a second chance, so don't miss it if you are within commuting distance.
