Don't you want me to take your LJ icon photo?

This weekend I'm in San Diego doing a workshop with Kake McKinnon (sold out) on Saturday and one on mah own (wide open) on Sunday. (Facebook invite here.)

This isn't a workshop for photographers, it's a party. And a workshop about photography. If you're a photographer and you want to learn about lights and lenses, you should sign up. If you're an actor who needs a headshot, you should come, if you have a dress you want yourself photographed in, you should come. If you have a diorama of the Civil War you want to sell on ebay and you need stunning photos of, you should come. If your portfolio is a mess and you want help figuring out what to do, you should come. If you have lights and umbrellas you can't figure out how to use, you should come. If you want to make origami paper cranes and listen to me tell jokes all day -- you should come. There are two half day sessions (morning/afternoon) and one all day session (which is both morning and afternoon.) The half days are $50, the full day is $100 -- you can come in the morning and decide whether you're having too much fun to leave after lunch.

We'll be in a beautiful house with a hot tub. Fo shizzle. Email for details.

Here's a .pdf of the last time Cake and I did this -- you should look at this, it's pretty pretty.

This is the promo shot I did for Curio Theatre's production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead last week. It's the sort of thing we'll be working on this weekend. Come on out. Bring your friends.

Please share with your friends around San Diego who may be interested.

Go do something awesome today.

This makes me wish I lived in the US even more! I love the UK but your posts keep making me make grabby hands at America.

Hope you have a lot of fun, it looks as though it's going to be amazing.

Actually, people can come to Balboa Park, just outside the Mingei Museum, on Saturday between 1-3 if they want to see the outdoor photo shoot of people in formal costume dress wearing fabulous jewelry being shot by Kyle and a host of other people with Cameras.

Extra points for showing up in hilarious dress. We will photograph you, and drape you in accessories, and then photograph you again. We might even pair you with a stilt-walking model.

We should be fairly easy to find, being dressed up and all. Tell Kyle to wear a frock coat and lace cuffs! And bring books and postcard sets to sell!

I like the shapes in this picture - the triangle of light/smoke is nice, especially given the down-pointing triangles of the men's vests. I do wish you had burned the lower right a bit more - unless the stairs/box are an important plot element, I don't think they add anything and they detract from the rest of the image.

I miss the Curio. A lot.

I am signed up for the afternoon! Should I bring the bag o' Strobist gear I have no idea how to use? Will you teach me to shoot fountain pen porn? And is it ok if I fold a three-headed dragon instead of a crane, it being Game of Thrones night on HBO? ;)
