    A couple of quick things regarding The f295 Symposium.

    *If anyone from APUG is planning to attend and would like to attend the preview party for the f295 Exhibition of Lensless and Alternative Photography let me know and I'm pleased to add you to the guest list.

    *Enrollment was going as well as we could have hoped and to celebrate that we extended our rates and eliminated the costly in-person rate of $200. So from now until April 20 you may register for $120 and after that a mere $165. Register here: http://www.f295.org/wordpress/?page_id=64

    *if any of you happen to be in PA and are a teacher-- we were just approved to offer Act 48 credit for the event. contact me for info.

    Here is a bit about each of the people presenting at the event:
    Jo Babcock, who just might be the king of low tech cameras. Jo takes
    the most mundane objects and gives them life as a camera and then uses
    these cameras to look inward and capture what is missing in their life.

    Craig Barber teaches at the Center for Photography at Woodstock and
    travels all over the world with his pinhole camera, focusing on the
    cultural landscape. Craig is also an amazing platinum printer.

    Barbara Ess, an associate professor of photography at Bard College,
    whose otherworldly pinhole book I am Not This Body: The Pinhole
    Photographs of Barbara Ess, was selected as one of the ten top photography books of the year by the Village Voice.

    Alan Greene is an expert in mid-19th Century Cameras & Negatives. His
    book Primitive Photography: A Guide to Making Cameras, Lenses, and
    Calotypes takes you step by step through the process of building your own cameras as well as teaching the photographic techniques of over a 150 years ago.

    Patricia Katchur is the director of the Center for Alternative and
    Historic Processes right here in NYC. The school is dedicated to the
    process of do-it-yourself photography.

    Terry King, from London, has been leading workshops for over 25 years
    on hands-on processes like gum printing, bromoil, cyanotype, and the rex process.

    Tom Persinger, founded and directs f295, an international organization
    with over 1000 members, interested in furthering the dialogue of the
    art of lensless photography.

    Mike Robinson works as a modern master of the daguerreotype. A
    long-neglected and demanding photographic art, the daguerreotype produces a direct positive image on silvered copper plate. He will also have images on display at the Daguerreian Society exhibition: Daguerreotypes Past and Present.
