About The Printed Vision Series
The printed image shows our successes and our faults at a much higher level of detail than the digital image. To become better photographers, it helps to understand this by creating the printed image as a final product, which is the purpose behind the Printed Vision Series.
Each Printed Vision topic will meet for two sessions. In the first session, we will discuss the topic and elaborate on editing with examples. This will include discussion of exposure, dynamic range and color, but also deeper points, such as noise reduction, image sharpening and grain. In between sessions 1 and 2, attendees will independently process 1-2 images and submit them to the instructor for printing. We will print one of the two images leading into the second session and discuss some of the challenges we face in printing them.
You do not need to produce a new image for this class and can go into your archives to print, but you are welcome to go out into the field and create something new based on the topic!

This Month’s Printed Vision Session: Workshopping Holiday Cards
In case you haven’t noticed, this instructor puts a lot of stress and effort into holiday and greeting cards! So many things can be said about printing small: If you can’t make it good small, you can’t make it good big; printing small presents a wonderful level of intimacy; cards are a way to easily distribute your work, your passions, your vision! In this instructor’s mind, nothing is better than a pristine, home-printed card.
The purpose of this class is twofold: 1- Find an image and workshop it for maximum effect in a printed card and 2- Work with you on how to print. IMPORTANT: In every printed vision class, we print images. Usually, it’s a large scale print, but here we will be printing cards. In the end, we will print 10 cards that will be yours to distribute. Please note: We will not have the ability to print hundreds of holiday cards for you in this way. The purpose is for us to see the end result and create small-batch custom prints accordingly.

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