Our district Subject Area Committee (SAC) meets two to three times during the academic year and I wanted to share what I was doing with my colleagues so I presented at the Spring SAC meeting and attempted to take a group portrait.
It was an exercise that proved to be more difficult than I expected given the weather, the time-intensive set up and the general difficulty trying to do something for the first time in front of a bunch of people. It was not unlike trying to parallel park with passengers in the car. It all was in good fun - but the presentation went better than the group photo. I'm lucky that I have supportive peers who understand process is all part of the practice. There wasn't a successful image from this portrait in the way that I could show them a good photograph, but I learned valuable information about developing solution temperature and the effects of rain drops on freshly poured collodion, so I will call it a 'win.'
