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: Printing Flowers
Everyone wants to print flowers. There is such a mass appeal of flowers for such obvious reasons, including their impermanence and their vibrancy of color. Therefore, it only makes sense that flowers should be printed to display that level of vibrance for a long period of time!
In this session, we will focus our energies on not only the editing process, but choosing the right surface of paper and size of paper. Among the topics discussed matte vs. glossy papers, the importance of textured papers, the illusive rice papers and natural/eco-friendly papers, printing with borders and considering creating alternative borders, and more! We will really be digging deep to think about what we are doing, why we’re doing it, and what we want to do!
Our instructional online presentation will be held on Wednesday May 25th from 7-8pm and we will reconvene for our Printed Image Review on Thursday June 9th from 6-8pm. You will have that time period in between to photograph and/or edit your images.
In the end, you will receive a print that you want, and it can be up to 13×19″ in size. You can also print smaller sizes, and it is encouraged to consider that, as we will be considering other techniques. If you would like prints on additional textured papers, we are happy to do that for the additional charge.
The Printed Vision classes are an excellent opportunity to learn more about not only about printing, but also the processing of images at a much more focused level. Recommended for everyone: Beginners to Advanced Photographers. Come join us for a lot of fun!
