The salon will focus on fine art photography intending to be a support to those doing photography and also to others who are fascinated by the medium and collectors. The format of the salon is fluid at this point but here are three components to start:a presentation by one of the salon members (or guest) that would involve teaching something photo-related–technique, aesthetics, culture, politics, motivation, history, sales; a critique by the salon of a member’s work, typically a set of prints on the wall but could also use HC’s digital projector for those who don’t print; and some time for socializing.
Later the salon could support creating/making available shared resources like a photo editing/printing workstation, photo blogging, wide format and b&w ink jet printer access, darkroom, lighting, studio, model sessions, joint projects, etc. The salon may also provide a core group to spin off a filmmaking salon along similar lines.
At this point the first presenters will be Gary Seelig with photos and Kathleen Ryan talking about street photography.
