Hello! This quick note is to let you know that some spaces are still available for my full day color management and fine-art printing workshop being held this Saturday 1/28/2012 at Calumet Photographic in New York City. 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. Below are two testimonials from recent attendees of the same workshop at Calumet Photo:
“Andrew gave a clear and detailed overview of printers, inks and most importantly settings that control the final quality of the prints. Â I love knowing that there is such a vast range of papers to choose from and how to get the best results from them. I stayed up quite late last night experimenting with the settings discussed in the class and I ended up with a print that I am pleased with! This is great, thanks so much for unlocking this mystery! The workshop more than exceeded my expectations.” – Polly W.
“I am a platinum printer with the need to make enlarged digital negatives and have been contracting this work out because even though I have followed the various blogs, I didn’t understand the requirements of what it means to be a digital printer. Â Andrew’s class gave me the framework to understand the process. Â He discussed the various options for hardware (equipment AND papers) and software from an unbiased, user viewpoint. This is VERY important. Â The week before I took Andrew’s class I went to the NY PhotoPlus Expo hoping to get a handle on my digital printing questions by talking to the various company reps and came away even more confused!
Andrew clarified all the sales hype and in a very straight forward manner showed what is needed to make great digital prints. Â Using participant’s digital files, he printed the images on various papers demonstrating the strengths of each and he also demonstrated the power of using Photoshop in such a clear manner that it is no longer a scary, black box, but a tool to be used. I highly recommend this class for anyone wishing to make digital photographs, and for experienced digital printers who wish to make better digital photographs.” -Lyle Allan
I hope to see you there!

Happy New Year!
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 seminarsÂ on Wednesday, October 26, 2011. The WPPI NYC show will be followed by the PhotoPlusÂ 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:Â 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 seminarÂ 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!
