Education Nights are Fun

Last night


…we had the opportunity to host a meet and greet night with The Manitoba Foto Friends.

What a great group of members who toughed the icy winds to come  out to learn a few things about how to submit files to The Lab Works for printing and to learn more about our products and services!

The Foto Friends haven’t been around very long (about 2 years) but already boast over 240 members!  They are a group devoted to photography and their energy and excitement is awesome!

We were pleased to have had the opportunity to meet some of these super friendly foto friends and think you should check out the group if you are seeking like-minded community. The group has no membership fees but maintains a comprehensive program that help members get access to knowledge and opportunities to shoot! (After our evening with them, some were heading off in to the night to shoot the northern lights). Inspiring to say the least!

Thanks Foto Friends for a fun night!

Make History.

While we like to think that everything we touch here in the lab is to become important historic record, from time to time we really get to see some special pieces from our past.

In this case our client brought in 46, 4×5″ glass negatives for scanning. Glass negs were produced and used between 1850 and 1920 until they were replaced by roll film. Pinpointing exact age is something beyond my skill, but the owner of the negatives is quite certain that within the grouping is an image of King Edward the VIII – indicating some of these were taken sometime between 1901 and 1910. A local film archivists informs they were likely later-made “prefab” glass negatives, which implies a later year of manufacture and a higher film speed. The quality of these images is simply beautiful.

At the time these were taken, it wasn’t likely thought of as “history in the making” but are now valuable pieces of history. What can you do with your digital files or negatives that will be history in the making? Make some prints, design an album, what ever it is, once you have it to hold it will exist for another 100 years. Historic.

 

Pinhole

It’s January.

It’s cold outside, the daylight is still limited to a mere 8h 40 min. from sunrise to sunset.

To take your mind off the fact that its dark and cold, I highly recommend visiting the Platform Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts this Friday night for the opening reception/booklaunch of  be.still, an exhibition by The Pinhole Artist Collective (PAC).

“PAC is a collective of artists interested in exploring the artistic plurality of analogue and digital photography. Growing out of the spirit of Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and the DIY artistic philosophy, they are hands-on, resourceful, playful, and open to constructive criticism. In regular gatherings, the collective engages in both critical discourse and artistic creation and is, from time to time, nomadic. PAC members participating in be.still are Sarah Crawley, William Eakin, lori fontaine, Beth Johnson, Jen Loewen, Merrell-Ann Phare, and Bonnie Tulloch“.

The reception is to begin at 7:00.
