“The boot camps series includes five workshops that will be held on Saturdays to accommodate attendees who are unable to take time off of work to participate in a full workshop that typically take place during the week,” said Mark Osterman, process historian, George Eastman Museum. “The boot camps are more streamlined, but still offer people a chance to get hands-on instruction from our historic and alternative process experts and the opportunity to make their own photographs.”
