Upcoming Printing and Color Management Workshops in NJ and a Special Offer
Andrew Darlow (right) with participants at a recent printing workshop. SoLux lamps and bulbs with a range of color temperatures are shown in the photo, and will be used during all of the workshops listed below to illuminate prints and to show the visual differences one may encounter when displaying art in galleries, homes and other locations.
I have three upcoming workshops covering Photoshop, Fine-art printing, Lightroom and Color Management. I enjoy these workshops immensely primarily because each group who joins me brings new ideas, questions, and new images and prints to share with me and the other participants.
Below are descriptions for three upcoming workshops that I’ll be conducting. For the first one listed, I would like to offer a $50 discount for those who register by 3/31/2010 (see below for more information)
