Some details below on a workshop with Mary Virginia Swanson. For those who don’t know Swannie, she is an amazing person to work with. Her knowledge of photography, galleries, portfolio reviews is unsurpassed. Swannie has given great advice in seminars at the PRC and to many local photogs in one-on-one consultations. She’ll get you to focus on the pieces that matter and really get you on track.
The Center for Creative Photography in Tuscan is another amazing rescource. Their outstanding collection can be viewed up close and personal ( but no touching the photos ). Appointments are necessary.
From the CCP website – “The print study program gives the public free and unprecedented access (by appointment) to one of the world’s largest photography collections. During the scheduled viewing, visitors may select and view photographs from the over 80,000 prints in the Center’s collection.”
I was there in 2006 and had them bring out some of my favorite photogs – Arbus, Winogrand, Avedon and David Akiba. Yes, you coulkd see their work in galleries, museuns and books. But yiou would be able to look under the matt and see the notes on the back! Really an great place to visit.

Check out this review of NIK Software’s Silver Efex Pro plugin for Photoshop by Craig Wolf.
I use Silver Efex in the lab fairly often and find it a great addition to the toolbox.
“Can anyone tell me how they developed this plug-in? Did they hold a seance and contact Ansel Adams and Edward Weston? I don’t know. I do know that Nik Silver Efex Pro is as good as gold. Even somebody like me can achieve fantastic results in just seconds. You may begin to smell the chemicals after looking at your own results.” – Craig Wolf
