We were happy to be hosting another PhotoTapas event in Ryan Gallery this weekend, featuring a series of guest speakers in Ryan Gallery.
After some coffee and donuts bright and early Saturday morning, the day began with a lecture from Scott Baxter about his The Gather exhibition at Scottsdale Museum of the West, and the relationships he has formed with the ranchers featured in the show.
Kerrick James spoke with us about monochrome infrared photography using digital camera bodies that have been modified
Alan Fitzgerald gave a crash-course on how to prepare your digital images to make contact prints in the darkroom, and students were able to see examples of prints made using digital negative transparencies!
Gina Santi spoke about the cultural contexts and traditions to consider when traveling the world and photographing the people you meet!
Brent Bond shared examples of photographic books and portfolios using letterpress-printed colophons and covers.
Geoff Reed shared his journey self-publishing his photography.
We ended the day in the lab with Spanish tapas-inspired food and a wine tasting with Garage East’s Brian Ruffentine, where he spoke about the varietals of Arizona wines produced in our own backyard!
