Lecturing a Class at the Art Institute of California- Hollywood

On April 11th, 2011, I had my first opportunity to lecture a class on portraiture photography. While the experience was great, it was definitely something I never thought I would ever do. Even though I've been shooting for over 20 years. I never thought that years later I'd be having a, "show and tell", with students who were just getting their feet wet. You see, I never went to school for photography (or took a class), so I had no reference on what students were learning in todays classroom. It was as much an eye opening experience for me, as it was for them. For one, gone are the days  of film,  print processing machines and darkrooms. Not that I miss them, but they were a large part of my "growing up" experience in photography. No more Cibachrome prints, or E6 processing. No more C prints or C-41 processing....puff! Everything has been replaced with rows upon rows of computer monitors, laptops and digital cameras. Even researching images through magazine tear sheets, is a thing of the past. It's a little exhilarating and sad at the same time. It's like loosing a room full of time honored, battle hardened craftsman, and replacing them all with one laptop. How many relationships, with labs and print technicians, had I built over the years, only to find they've all fallen to the waste side. Like so many tumble weeds, blowing in a deserted town. Puff! Welcome to the future of photography.
