Mini Sessions to Raise Money for After School Photography Workshops

everydaystorytellingminisessionwebpromoThis fall I will be teaching a series of after school photography workshops to K-5th grade students at Hillsdale Preparatory School.  The workshop activities will nurture creative curiosity through tinkering with vintage photographic technologies. Students will  experiment with film cameras, make sun prints and even create a few instant “Polaroids”.

To learn more about the after school workshops please go to www.retromediaproject.com.

The workshops are free to HPS students.  To raise money for the needed materials I am offering a limited number of mini portrait sessions throughout October and November 2016, just in time for holiday gifting!

Each mini session will include 30 minutes of photography at your home or at another Hillsdale location of your choice and 6 printable digital files.  The mini session fee is $100 and is due at the time of the session.  The photos will be available within a week as a digital download.

To schedule a mini session or to lean more about the after school workshops, please call 412.996.2283 or send me an email to mrsheckel@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your interest and support!

Salt prints…

It’s been over a decade since I made my last salt print, but recently I  recommitted myself to processing old sheet film exposures and returning to the photographic processes that I fell in love with while in graduate school.

I’m getting my feet wet with this first sheets of film. There’s a lot I have forgotten, but I am hoping to turn this effort into some creative projects so I’m determined  to stay with it.

The one shown in this post is of a wedding I photographed for friends in 2005.  There’s plenty of density on the negative which can be a good thing, but it’s going to take more than the 20 minute exposure I allowed to get a solid print.  I’ll have to give it another try with a much longer exposure. 🙂
