Three more in my DC at night series. These were all shot with the Canham 5×7 wood field, and if memory serves, all were taken with the Kodak 12″ Commercial Ektar lens.

Busy photo day
Today was a very busy day. This morning I went out to Glen Echo Photoworks to help out with the open house. We had a lot of folks come through asking about my upcoming classes and about the prints I brought along.
Then I went to dinner with my parents for their 50th anniversary at Blacksalt, which is a fancy fish and seafood restaurant here in DC. I had made the reservations and told the restaurant about the anniversary in advance, so they prepared special menus that said Happy 50th Anniversary on them, and when dessert came out, they specially decorated the plate with chocolate sauce.
The photo relevance here is that I brought the Rollei along to take their photo at the table. I’ll have the film dropped off Tuesday and get it back later this week.
On the way home, I detoured back to Glen Echo and waited for the neon lights to come on so I could burn through some more of that 5×7 Portra I have sitting around. And burn through it I did. I also stopped off in Georgetown and shot some more on the waterfront, and even grabbed a couple of sheets in the rain. I’m really looking forward to seeing those!
I’ve gotten some further confirmation, so I can post more information about this now:
I’ll be showing work at PhotoWorks in Glen Echo, Maryland as part of PhotoWeek DC 2011. I’ll be displaying my platinum/palladium prints and talking about the process as part of a show-and-tell event on Sunday, November 6. I’ll update with links when they have a schedule of events published. I’ll also probably be doing a process demo some evening that week or the following weekend, November 12-13, and a full-fledged workshop in the spring of 2012.
