Friday, March 23, 7-10 pm is the opening for the Cheap Shots exhibit, featuring the work of 17 photographers under the guise of the Ann Arbor Krappy Kamera Club. It's taking place at Gallery 4, upstairs in Nickels Arcade off State Street in Ann Arbor.
A bunch of us have been busy getting the gallery ready -- last week we painted the walls, and we hung the photos on Tuesday. It looks GOOD. Only a year ago, we started this whole thing, and now we have our first show, which isn't bad for a loose-knit bunch of people like us.
More info in the show is here
Marjorie and I both have two pieces in the show, and although my camera wasn't terribly crappy, my lens was a lensbaby, which qualifies as super crappiness.
I'll be presenting a bit about using old cameras on March 31:
Dust Off Your Old Cameras and Get Busy!
Saturday 31st March
A talk by club member and vintage camera expert Mark O'Brien. He'll show examples of "orphaned" cameras, of the type many people find hidden away in their attics and basements (Argus, Brownies, old SLRs, etc.). He'll talk about how to get these forgotten gems up and running and out shooting film again. Afterwards he'll stick around to answer questions and offer one-to-one advice on the history and value of old cameras.
When: Saturday March 31st, 1-2pm
Where: Gallery 4, 212 Nickels Arcade, Ann Arbor, MI
