ADVANCED DIGITAL PRINTING (Lr)
Date: TBA (six sessions bi-weekly)
A FINE PRINT
IS ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS
Fine Digital Printing II* is an advanced five session bi-weekly course focused on continuing to explore the art of fine digital printing (this course is a sequel to the Fine Digital Printing course).
Each class begins with a review and discussion of student's prints (both work and finished prints) with an emphasis on exploring the directions each print may be taken. Post production techniques will be discussed, and when necessary, demonstrated, to assist in the finishing of student prints.
In addition to working on their own images, students will be assigned homework focused on using different styles and approaches to finished prints, thereby strengthening the student's understanding of their own printing style. Discussions and presentations on different approaches to print finishing and presentation will also be held.
Designed for the student who is already printing their own work (either through a commercial printing lab, or a home printer) with a wide range of processing skills, this course can help take your fine printing to the next level!
Class Size: four to eight student
Course Expectations: students are to produce numerous proof and finished prints during the course (8"x10" or larger}. These prints can be produced on photo-chemical (commercial labs) and ink jet printers (home printing). Printing costs are not included in the course fee.
Location: ViewPoint Gallery, 1475 Bedford Highway, Bedford, NS
Fee: $280 + HST plus printing costs
A three month ViewPoint Gallery Print Associate Membership ($80 for a student/$30 for a who is a Friend of ViewPoint) would provide students with access to the gallery's 24" wide Epson P7000 printer for the duration of the course, with printing fees of $10.80/linear foot of 24" paper.
Requirements: Students must have previous photography experience and intermediate skills with Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom (in-class demonstrations will be done on Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom Classic on a Windows 10 computer). Students who have not completed the Illuminating Lightroom courses should contact Eric Boutilier-Brown prior to registration to ensure their skill level is sufficient to fulfill the course expectations.
Students using Adobe® Photoshop® CC may also take the course, but should be aware than a number of the techniques explored in class do not apply to Adobe® Photoshop® CC, and that Adobe® Photoshop® CC is not directly addressed in the course.
