Baby Photographer Wanted

March 30, 2010

No. Not for me…

Lindee, a recent transplant to Cleveland, is looking for a creative photographer to take her son’s 6 month portraits – an easy task if she wanted to use and to get the same old standard headshots.  But she’s looking for something more than that.  He’ll only be this little once.  She  thinks young, creative photographic art students may have a fresh prospective on baby portraits (She is willing to pay!).

If you’re interested, email Lindee:

Printer / Medium Format Assignment

March 23, 2010

I’m anticipating a big run on the printer this week before your deadline on Friday.  You are to have all your prints finished by the beginning of class.  So far, I haven’t seen much printing.  This worries me.  I’m posting a sign up sheet by the printer.  Make  arrangements to have your prints finished on time.

Minimum size 11″x14″.  Remember to arrange your prints to make best use of the 24″ wide paper (for instance, two vertically oriented 14″x11″ prints side by side for a 22″x 11″ print).

If you’re working in the darkroom, disregard.

Reminder: Student Show Drop Off…

March 22, 2010

…is Tue and Wed  (yes tomorrow and the next day) between 10am – 4pm in the CSU Art Gallery.
