The Little Pond Workshop is a wonderful opportunity for photographers of all skill levels to shoot with talented figure models in a unique setting on private property. I will be serving as one one of the instructors along with 3 other very experienced figure photographers: Greg Tapler, Olaf Starorypinski, and Rick Schweitzer. We will provide guidance on composition, determining correct exposure, training your eye to find the best light, and developing a good rapport with the models so they can help your to achieve you vision. Students should expect to come away with a better understanding of how to integrate the nude figure into a compelling piece of fine art photography.
About Little Pond
Little Pond Arts Retreat, is the residence of a very good friend of mine and his lovely wife. Little Pond is spacious and private. The property offers creative opportunities with natural lighting, textures and tones. Below are some photographs that offer a glimpse of the creative spaces available at Little Pond. To read more about Little Pond, for directions, or to visit their website, please click here.
We are limiting the workshop to 16 so each participant will have the opportunity to work with every instructor and model. We intend to place the instructing photographers in different areas of Little Pond so as to capitalize on shooting time with each model and to allow the participant’s creativity to grow as they move through each area.

PSA ~ IMAGES in the PUBLIC DOMAIN
Four or five times now, i have seen where a blog contains some verbiage like:
"All images were found on the internet and assumed in the public domain"
Just an FYI kids, as of 1978, images/photos do not enter Public Domain until 70 years after the death of the original creator. Barring some written document, where the creator gives his work to the Public Domain,
So now, ignorance to public domain is not an excuse to infringe on some creators copyright.
I know at least one of the blogs he might be talking about. I follow this asshole on tumblr just to see when he posts my friends’ work or my own. Then I report him to the photographer and hopefully they issue a take down request. He’s a wholesale copyright violator and I’ve told tumblr as such, but they let his blog here continue.
I’m not a litigious person, but if he posts something of mine again, I’d consider suing his ass for copyright violation.
so, i had a minor accident in the darkroom. my setup is mostly a board across my washer/dryer in the basement. it works well, but i still have to do laundry. so, one day after making some prints, i left the tray of developer out just because i’m lazy and tired after i’m done. when i came back, i think the spin cycle caused one of the boxes of undeveloped film to fall into the print developer. i had to scramble a bit to figure out what to do to save the negatives and some were already developed. the others were damp and i thought they might be ruined. so, i just tossed them in the print developer for 10 mins and thought i’d see what comes of them. there was a good possibility that they were already ruined. towards the end of the 10 mins of development, i decided to solarize the negatives (turn on the lights for the briefest second) just to see what might happen. the results were mixed, but i liked this one a lot.
Ilford HP5+ developed in Ilford Universal Developer for 10 mins, solarized, fixed and washed. scan of the 4×5 negative.
