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 in Black & White
Black & White printing has an historic place in photography, as for the past 175 years, it has been the dominant method of printing and viewing photographs. There are many things to think about when we edit an image for printing in Black & White, and this course will discuss those many items.
In this session, we will discuss different paper options, what to look for in the editing process, and more. Our instructional online presentation will be held first and we will reconvene for our Printed Image Review. You will have that time period in between to photograph and/or edit your images. In the end, you will receive a 12×18″ print on fine art Baryta paper. (Please note: The cost of a 12×18 or 13×19 print on fine art paper is $35-$40; the cost of this class includes the cost of that print!)
Receiving Your Print
After the class, your print can either be mailed to you or picked up at one of our Hunt’s Photo store locations.
