I’ll be giving a 2 hour seminar titled “Intro to Fine Art Printing” this weekend at Unique University, part of Unique Photo located in Fairfield New Jersey. Sponsored by Canson Infinity, I’ll be talking about the basics of printing your own work, the latest fine art printers, workflow, and of course Canson paper. I’ll also have a bunch of my own prints on hand to use as examples of the different papers I use, and also highlight key aspects of a successful print. There will also be a Q+A session where I’ll try to field all of the questions thrown at me!
Of course there is no way I can teach everything about fine art printing in a few hours, but I hope to give participants a thorough overview of what is involved, and provide some practical tips they can put to use in their own printing right away. This is a deep topic but I’m always eager to share what I’ve learned over the years, and give other photographers a deeper respect for the art and craft of printing. Many photographers choose not to print their own work, and I totally respect and understand that. I have always been interested in the finished product, which for me is the print. It is what I sell and how I make my living, so it gets my focus and attention as much as any other part of my photography.
I’ll have some photos and post some tips from the seminar here next week – if you’re interested and in the area, check it out.
