A FINE PRINT IS A PHOTOGRAPH'S

PERFORMANCE

Fine Digital Printing (Lightroom) is a six session bi-weekly course perfect for the photographer with lots of great images but nothing to put on their walls! This course guides students through the process of producing fine finished photographic prints using Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom, with a focus on image refinement, tonal adjustments, and preparation for printing. The class addresses all aspects of digital printing, for students using both photo-chemical (commercial labs) and ink jet printers (home printing).

 

Each class is accompanied by full colour notes and written homework assignments.

Course objectives:

  • examine printing options, costs & consequences

  • explore proof, work & finished prints

  • learn strategies for culling images for printing

  • create methods for consistent image finishing

  • explore framing & presentation options

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, 1272 Barrington Street, Halifax, NS

 

Fee: $320 + HST plus printing costs

 

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 CC 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.

Feedback from students:

 

I walked into this course with a totally wrong impression of how to print properly...this course was a real eye-opener.  Right combination of lecture and hands-on via homework...

Sure is nice to learn things in class as opposed to my usual way of muddling through books and online tutorials! I see there is plenty of room to tweak my work!

            - Krista

 

I am really excited about all of this. The printing really is a final step to photography and I LOVE it!
