Black and White Fine Art Inkjet Printing Workshops July 18 and July 25, 2009
I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be conducting two Black and White Fine Art Inkjet Printing workshops in Berkeley Heights, NJ on July 18 and July 25, 2009. Each workshop is identical, and each will run from 10AM-5PM. I’ve done about 15 similar workshops at the same location over the 16 months, but these will focus exclusively on how to produce black and white fine-art prints. I’ll also be showing and discussing the materials and processes I used for my recent show, entitled, GRANDmarks NYC. You can read more about the show here.
This full day lecture and printing workshop will include:
-Suggested inkjet printers for quality black and white printing (emphasis will be on Canon, Epson and HP printers and their standard pigmented multi-gray inksets, though information will be provided about dedicated black and white inkjet printing systems);
-Suggested color management hardware and software for black and white printing, and how to produce, install and use custom printer profiles;
-Tips for selecting inkjet papers for black and white printing;
-Demonstration of a step-by-step black and white printing workflow (Mac OSX will be used, but Windows-specific information will also be covered for those who use Windows XP or Windows Vista);
-Specific Photoshop and Lightroom tips for converting from color to black and white, and what to do and not to do before and after you convert your files,
-Links to and demonstrations of free actions to help optimize black and white print quality.
Many samples of black and white prints will be displayed and discussed, and each attendee who supplies a file will have two prints of one image printed on either an Epson or HP pigment-ink-based printer. Each participant will also receive a binder with course materials and a list of resources and materials, including recommended papers and canvases.
Enrollment is limited to just six participants.
Tuition for either workshop is $224 (plus $25 materials fee). Those who register by June 18 will receive a free 30 minute phone consultation with me after the workshop, as well as a signed 11×14 poster print of the photo: Chrysler Building (pictured below and limited to just 301 prints).
