For ages, darkroom printing was an art form that was destined only for those that had a darkroom. Now they practically give digital printers away, and what darkroom techniques were sequestered to your basement can now be duplicated in a corner office.
But Digital Printing, while simple in concept, has a myriad number of curiosities and questions associated with it. Among the issues printers run into are color correction, proper exposure, ability to utilize multiple papers, understanding how to edit for print, how to print in black and white, and why and when to use certain tools. In this course, we will answer these questions, as well as refer back to some of the more basic elements of digital printing, including ICC profiles, monitor calibration, and more!
This class is for anyone that has set up their printer and understands some of the basic concept of printing, but is having issues producing consistent results, or wants to go further in understanding how to achieve the best printing results! We love printing, and we want to share that love of printing with you! You do not need to own a printer, but it helps. We recommend Canon or Epson.
While the time is limited, we invite you to bring one or two potential images with you (on a memory card or thumb drive) that may be used in the class for demonstration. RAW files are recommended.
For more basic techniques in printing, our Intro to Digital Printing course is recommended.
