This blog is predominately about camera trapping in California. We camera trap to save our souls and to teach primary school students about biology and conservation. We will also touch on other camera trapping news and musings, sets from afar, mediocre herpetology, sucky birding, and other natural history discussions.

3 Fish Studios

We at Camera Trapping Campus always like to give a shout out to artists we discover or can call a friend.

A couple weeks back I had the pleasure of taking a class in linocut printmaking at 3 Fish Studios, located in Dogpatch, SF.

Our teacher, Eric, was a great: offering us great knowledge, unique resources and positive feedback throughout 6 hours of wonderful creativity (also soundtracked by some sweet jams).

All of us choose one image, which we would trace twice, then carve on a small linoleum sheet.

Then, we were free use all that was in the studio in combination with our block. Beginning with the basic, a Conrad Machine etching press and black ink...

... and ending somewhere between bright origami paper, musty field guides and children's books from the early 20th century.

The classes are highly recommended for anyone in the Bay Area -- no matter the level of artistic skill.
