Digital Group now “Explorations Group”

Photography has seen many changes in technology and when I first started the Digital Group some 25 years ago “digital photography” was new. Back then it made sense to distinguish the group’s name from the well established “analogue” image capture and darkroom processing as the medium was an exciting new way for photographers to create their imagery. But nowadays using the digital medium has become ubiquitous for photographers so we’ve decided to drop the “Digital” designation in preference for “Explorations” as that is what we’ve been doing for the last 25 years through the Digital Group... “exploring” photography (regardless of the medium). So we will continue our “explorations” of photography in all its many facets, as we’ve done over the last 25 years... but now the group will be know as the “Explorations Group”.

Toning Workshop with Mike Wilde – May 11, 2019 – 11am – 4pm

The Darkroom Group welcomes back Mike Wilde on Saturday May 11th from 11am - 4pm for a hands-on toning workshop.

Mike will present a background on various types of toners as well as technical and artistic reasons for using them. Selenium and sepia toners will be be demonstrated and available for use.

Participants are invited to come in with prints already done, and better if they have a couple of identical prints so we can look at the change. Prints on fibre papers will produce better results than RC papers.

This workshop will be limited on space.

To reserve your space, email me directly at imaginemallory [at] gmail [dot] com. Any member is welcome to attend, no previous experience is required.
