    I'm starting a 'printing for the fine art photographer' class next week with Charles Cramer and Bill Atkinson.

    It's in San Francisco, I live in Philly.

    So i'm leaving tomorrow at 7am to go travel CA for a week before the class.

    They asked us to bring ~10 prints for critique.

    I had planned on matting and mounting all 10.

    My cat died, and I didn't finish the matting.


    My question is this:

    Do I:

    A: stay up till it's done (5 more to go)
    B: take half mounted, half un-mounted
    C: unmount them all


    I'm afraid that the mounted ones will get special treatement because theyr'e finished, although I don't think they're my best prints...

    thoughts?

    Did they ask you to have them mounted? I'd go all or nothing

    they did not, they said bring it however you want to present it... slides, prints, etc...


    I'd prefer to have em matted.

    Not sure if I have it in me, and if it's worth staying up all night.

    I say unmount the ones you have done, take them like that, and get some rest.

    They're done.

    fucking sucks.

    I gotta be up to get on a plane in a couple hours...

    Haven't packed yet.

    The kittah dying really sucks.

    Not that he died today, but that he died...

    3yo kittahs shouldn't be allowed to get brain tumors.
