This workshop is designed for professional and amateur photographers, as well as other artists who want to see a wide variety of print samples, learn about color management (including how to make custom profiles or have an outside service make them for you), and learn specific workflows to achieve gallery-quality black and white and color prints that closely replicate the image displayed on a quality calibrated and profiled LCD or CRT monitor. Each attendee will have at least two prints made of their work on a pigment-based inkjet printer (13-inch-wide Epson and HP printers will be used during the workshop).

Some comments from previous workshop attendees:

“In nearly forty years of taking numerous photo classes and workshops this was definitely one of the best. Andrew’s vast knowledge and natural ability to impart his wisdom was excellent. Nancy Ori’s Studio is an excellent venue for workshops as the atmosphere is so welcoming, it is more conducive to learning than being in a traditional classroom. The topics covered exceeded my expectations and I learned more than I imagined I could in such a short period of time. Thank you Andrew and Nancy!!” -Heidi S., West Orange, NJ

“Andrew Darlow was articulate, extremely knowledgable and very patient. He is a very good speaker who instinctively knows how much information and detail to present to the attendees who had a wide range of experience levels. The workshop was very well organized and the setting was beautiful and peaceful. The workshop exceeded my expectations.” -Ruth Naomi Floyd, Philadelphia, PA
