Weston Photography Newsletter #6February 28th, 2012
The winter has been pretty mild here on the California Coast. The sunrises and sunsets have been spectacular this season! Can’t remember a time that they been so beautiful for so many days in a row! Though we are longing for big winter storms and rain we are happy with what we have. We are gearing up for our 2012 Weston Photography Workshop Series, and we are excited about meeting all of the new people that are coming and looking forward to seeing the familiar faces that we have met over the years.
The Edward Weston Workshop: A Day with Kim Weston is scheduled for March 17, 2012. I know its on St. Patricks Day. Maybe instead of our delicious homemade spaghetti (our regular meal) we should be cooking Corned Beef and cabbage. Kim got a really good recipe from our friend John Wrobleski and its so good!
Only one day left for the February POM!

The Edward Weston Workshop: A Day with Kim Weston
I thought it was appropriate to rename our 1 day workshop. After all we spend so much time in Edward Weston’s home and old darkroom. Here you will see where Brett Weston helped Edward print the famous “Project Prints” a collection of 832 negatives considered to be Edward’s finest prints. Tour the famous Point Lobos State Park and see where many of the famous iconic photographs like “Pl-L-23 China Cove” and “PL-L-10G Fog and Cypress were taken. This one day workshop is a perfect introduction to The Weston Photography Legacy. Not too many places in the world you can see such so much fine quality photography without going to a museum! Local Photographers will join us and share their latest works. We will cook an intimate dinner for you and engage in a fireside conversation about photography!

Ocean Dunes Visit
Last weekend we got invited by Ted Stoddard to come and meet the photographers in his large format camera group. I had never been to the Oceano dunes. I had seen so many photographs that Edward Weston had taken there and was so excited to go down and see them. We had a great time and hope to schedule some time to go down and photograph there soon!
We hear lots of rumors that black and white film photography is going away. We don’t believe it. Let’s keep it going every way we can. While we embrace the digital photography world we continue to explore all different modalities, Kim has been spending his mornings and nights on our beloved coastline. Things do change you can count on it. Join us as we celebrate this wonderful photographic world that we live in!
Thank you to all of the new newsletter subscribers, our loyal Print of the Month Collectors, our workshop followers, our other collectors, and to all of you out there that keep in touch with us!
