I’ve been conducting full-day inkjet printing/color management workshops over the past six months in Berkley Heights, NJ. The space where they are held is excellent, and the small class size of no more than five students helps make it easy for people to ask questions. Below is the press release for two full-day workshops that I’m giving January 9 and 10, 2008. Also, there is one space available for the same workshop this Sat. October 13 from 10:00am-5:00pm.

BERKLEY HEIGHTS, NJ, December 10, 2008 – New Jersey Media Center LLC will host two separate full-day workshops, entitled Fine-Art Inkjet Printing: How to Prepare Files and Make Gallery-Quality Prints on Friday, January 9, 2009 and Saturday, January 10, 2009 from 10:00am-5:00pm. The workshops, held at Nancy Ori Studios in Berkley Heights, NJ and conducted by photographer and consultant Andrew Darlow, are designed for professional and amateur photographers, as well as other artists.

The workshops, each limited to just five participants, will cover the following: an overview of pro-quality printers from Canon, Epson and HP; a description of more than 20 recommended inkjet papers (including glossy, fiber gloss, and watercolor); color management hardware and software options (including a demonstration of how to make custom monitor and printer profiles); and tips for optimizing workflow and print quality with specific papers and printers in Adobe Lightroom 2, Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4, and other programs.

Selected prints output from Canon, Epson and HP printers will be demonstrated and discussed, and 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). Participants will receive more than 30 letter-sized blank sheets of high-end inkjet papers for testing, and a class binder detailing the contents of the presentation, as well as the step-by-step print workflow covered in the workshop will be provided to each participant. Each attendee will also receive a 30 minute private phone follow-up consultation with Andrew Darlow.

Andrew Darlow notes, “I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to teach these January workshops at New Jersey Media Center after having such great experiences at the previous ten that I’ve conducted there over the last six months. Working with each attendee to make prints of their inspiring work during the class has been a real joy.”

REGISTRATION FEE: If registered by December 30, 2008– $224 (plus $25 materials fee). Fee if registered after December 30, 2008 – $269 (plus $25 materials fee).
