Re: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age

I also think that this is a great idea. Where would it be held etc. ? We could have a giant portfolio viewing exchange and have a lot of fun. Hellena

What a great idea! I think summer or fall would be the best time of year (July - August - September)... The conference should be international, IMO. Could it be something like APIS in Europe?

Subject: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age

Hi There

I have just taken over as President of the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society, which is about to celebrate its 120th anniversary

I am a keen alternative photographer indulging in gum, cyanotype and platinum

I do some heavy processing of digital photographs, which I print out in my inkjet printer as large negatives (I can get to A2 and slightly larger)

I then print onto watercolour paper using a light box I've built myself

Can I ask everyone a simple question?

Would there be any interest next year 2010 in a conference or some other "get together" on the topic of "Alternative Photography in the Digital Age"?

If so, what sort of size of an event should I aim for?

What would be the best time of year?

I am keen to try to make it international, am I being too ambitious?

Thank you all in advance
