Full-Day Printing w/ Photoshop Workshop 11/5/2011 in NYC

This quick post is to let you know that space is still available for my full day color management and fine-art printing workshop being held this Saturday 11/5/2011 at Calumet Photographic in New York City. It’s on the same floor as the exhibition I recently curated by Ron Wyatt, entitled Ron Wyatt’s China. In addition to a full day of color management and printing information, I will be showing more than 30 different fine-art paper types, as well as some metal prints.

The first 12 people to register will also have a print prepped and printed by me on a fine art paper of your choice. One of the printers I’ll be using for the workshop is the Epson Stylus Pro 3880. For more information or to register, visit this page.

If you are not planning to attend the workshop, you may still want to stop by on Saturday 11/5 or Sunday 11/6. Ron Wyatt will be answering questions and doing free 30 minute tours of the current show on exhibit at 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm (no registration is necessary). There are 31 prints total in the show, including 11 framed prints from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

I hope to see you there!


PhotoPlus Expo NYC 2011 Returns with a Packed Schedule of Events and Seminars

For more than 20 years I’ve looked forward to late October in New York City. Not only is the weather often fantastic, it’s the time of year that the PhotoPlus Expo is held. And this year, they’ve upped the ante by adding a number of new events, including the inaugural WPPI 2011, which features a full day of educational seminars on Wednesday, October 26, 2011. The WPPI NYC show will be followed by the PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo from October 27-29, 2011. This page has an excellent overview of the events, including information about a Wednesday evening “Test Drive Rally,” and a Friday night Bash and Benefit For Japan Relief. Registration for WPPI 2011 costs $99 for those who register by October 25, 2011 (on-site registration will be $150). For more information or to register, visit this page.



Last year I wrote an article entitled: 10 Tips for Navigating the PhotoPlus Expo in New York City, which you can find here. With the exception of some specific events that I mentioned from last year’s show (and booth numbers from last year), the information still applies.

I’m also very happy to be speaking again at the PhotoPlus Expo 2011. My seminar, entitled Lightroom Power Printing: Tips for Getting the Most from Lightroom’s Printing Capabilities, is on Thursday, October 27 from 3:30-5:30PM. During the seminar, I’ll be sharing a lot of the techniques I use to prepare, proof and make final prints using Lightroom, whether outputting to inkjet printers or photo labs. A two-and-a-half minute video promo of my seminar can be seen here, and to go directly to the registration page and a full description of the seminar, visit this page.

I hope to see some ImagingBuffet readers there! If you see me on the show floor, drooling over the latest lighting gear, lenses, etc., please say hi!


Two Recent Articles on Factors to Consider when Choosing an Inkjet Printer

I recently wrote two pretty long articles for covering factors to consider when choosing an inkjet printer. When all was said and done, I wrote about 7000 words total for both articles thanks to the number of printers on the market, as well as the many topics to consider before making an investment in a printer (from costs to RIP options). I added information about my personal experiences with inkjet printers, and I included a number of printer model names and specific suggestions throughout the article. The first covers printers up to 17 inches in width, and the second covers printers up to 44 inches in width (the widest paper size that can fed into a printer).
