Alt Summit | Saturday Sessions

Saturday at Alt was a really cool day. There were so many things to do. From a photowalk, to a foodie tour, to a thriftshop tour or a trip to the ski slopes in Park City, you could choose a sightseeing adventure or take a day filled with hands-on classes. I chose to take three classes, Bookbinding, Printmaking and Food/Tabletop Photography.

The morning started with a bookbinding class with Alison of Igloo Letterpress. We made three different projects but my favorite was the actual bookbinding where we sewed paper signatures together with waxed linen thread.

The second class, Printmaking with Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore Street Press was really cool and really messy. I only have this one picture of Eva giving us instructions before it was gloves on and paint flowing.

In the afternoon, I was thrilled to take a food photography class with House of Brinson. William and Susan were super amazing. Susan spoke first about styling a shoot and using what you have as props.

Then William went through some of the more technical processes.

Before the light was completely gone, they set up four stations for us to practice on.

Here are some of the pictures that I took.

All the beautiful food inspired me to take more pictures at home after grocery shopping. I want to really expand my portfolio of food images this year. I think these few shots are a good start! I honestly think I learned more in that two hour session than I did in a year’s worth of photography school. Amazing what a little hands-on learning can do!

Just as the class was ending, it started to snow giant, wet flakes on the gorgeous courtyard. I stepped outside to take a few pictures, but the best one that I took was a quick snap with my iPhone through the window:

Classes ended around 5:30 and I headed back to the hotel to hang out with Karyn. We decided to stay in and chill in the room. We watched a few movies and relaxed since the next day was a big day in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival!

    Sounds like a good time. I ended up going to Sundance on Saturday since all the classes were booked when I signed up. Wish we had a chance to meet!
