Maybe you’re avoiding printing altogether, or you’re just contemplating purchasing a photo quality printer. Then this is definitely the workshop for you!

You’ll learn the complete printing workflow, from calibrating your monitor to achieving the perfect gallery worthy print.  Here are some of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Understanding color spaces
  • Using printer profiles
  • Printing from Adobe Lightroom

  • Evaluating and refining your prints

This is a one OR two-day workshop, and you can choose to attend one or both days.

On Saturday we’ll cover the technical aspects of the printing workflow and go through the various steps and choices required to get predictable results that match your monitor.  We’ll also look at preparing photos to be printed at an outside lab.

Sunday’s session will be a hands-on workshop where you’ll be working on your own images, preparing them for printing, making prints, and evaluating the results.  We’ll have a variety of papers for you to experiment with so you can see the effect paper choice makes on the final print.
