One Week to Better Photography
Dwight Primiano
August 27 - 31, 2001
Fee: $100/ day or $400/week
Application Deadline: July 26, 2001

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.

Day 1:  Camera basics, metering, testing and calibration of color
        and b&w film, 35mm and 4x5 copy stand.  Digital

        large format equipment selection, use of Polaroid film,
