NEW! Fujifilm X-T1 Body Preview...

Well finally, the mythical Fujifilm X-T1 has been announced! After many leaks, even an official teaser from Fujifilm, the X-T1 ($1,299 body) was finally revealed in all its glory. As much as I like the sleek, rangefinder-esque styling of the X-E2 and other previous X-series bodies from a practicality standpoint, I can't deny that the new X-T1 looks great, especially in person. Yes indeed, thanks to our local Fujifilm rep, I managed a reasonably extensive hands-on for an hour or so with a production-level X-T1 body, although the firmware was still pre-production. Below, you can see the X-T1 between an X-Pro1 and X-E1…

Impossible Project Workshop Videos by Wayne Lam

This past week we ran a number of workshops offering photographers the use of our studio space, 8x10 camera, lights, backdrops and Kathy's expert advice on shooting 8x10 Impossible Project film and making emulsion transfers. Thanks to one of our great clients, Wayne Lam from Wayne's World Studio, we now have two videos showing the processes. So for your viewing pleasure, we bring you the following "how-to" videos.

Impossible Project 8x10 Workshop

Finally! Beau Photo’s 8x10 Impossible Project Workshop will take place on January 14th and 16th.  
This is your chance to try out Impossible Project's 8x10 film without having to buy a whole box and figure out the processor on your own! Learn all about this film and how to get from taking the photograph to processing the image, as well as what options you have for preserving your image. 

This workshop will be a different format than our lift workshops. Each person will have about an hour and fifteen minute time slot in which to set up whatever they like and shoot a sheet of Impossible Project 8x10 film. You are encouraged to bring your own model or still life subject matter, and you will be able to use our 8x10 camera and lighting from our rental department to create the perfect shot. 

The $30 workshop fee includes one 8x10 Impossible Project shot and instruction on the process. Additional shots can be taken for just $20 each or you can purchase a box of film and have some left at the end of the day to use as you wish. If you are inspired, you can also do a lift with this film here at Beau or when you get home. Payment in advance is required to secure your place. 

Call or e-mail Nicole for information and to register.
