One Week to Better Photography
August 28 - September 1, 2000
Dwight Primiano

    Photodocumentation plays a major role in conservation and the
    study of fine arts but many professionals who use photography
    are self taught.  This intense hands-on workshop will provide
    all the skills, from simple to complex, necessary for consistent
    quality photographs under any condition.

    For the beginner the first day will introduce participants to
    the basics of 35mm SLR camera selection and operation.  Those
    familiar with camera operation can join the workshop for
    individual days or a four-day course on photographic methods for
    two and three dimensional objects and architecture with 35mm and
    4 X 5.  Slide and black and white photographs produced in the
    workshop will be critiqued to help identify means to produce
    accurate photodocumentation with consistent exposures.   The
    results of attending this workshop will be better images and
    reduced film and processing costs.

    Fee: $100/ day or $400/week
    Registration Deadline: July 26, 2000
