About Capture to Print Workshops
Printing your photos will make you a better photographer. The first step to creating a great print is by understanding how to create a great photograph in the field.
Capture-To-Print is an intermediate workshop that focuses not only on photography, but also editing and printing! Half photo workshop, half editing and printing, we will take you through the whole process–from Capture to Print— to demonstrate what is important in the field, how to effectively process photos, and why printing is a necessity.
About this workshop
We will begin at the South Boston Waterfront, also known as the “Seaport District”. This area of constant expansion holds the beautiful ICA Boston- Institute of Contemporary Art; the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center; one of the first modern “Innovation Districts”; the Harpoon Brewery and Taproom; and many hotels and nearly one hundred restaurants. There’s so much to photograph, from architecture to people to details to long exposures and will give us an excellent, diverse body of work that we can use to find images that we want to print.
After the workshop, attendees will edit their photos on their own and upload 2-3 images to the instructors for review. We will review those edits, individually discuss your editing choices and make suggestions for additional edits, then print the images as 12×18″ on fine art paper. We will conclude the workshop the following week with a printed image review. We will hold the review in our Melrose store, but if you cannot attend this, you will also be able to watch it online. (The session will also be recorded if you cannot make it to the online session live.)
This will be a fun and challenging workshop that will walk you through the full process of creating a print, from capture to edit to print. The process of printing is integral to developing one’s photographic vision.

After the class, your print can either be mailed to you or picked up at one of our Hunt’s Photo store locations.
