In addition to the new Winter Night Landscape workshop I’m teaching in late February, I also will be teaching three weekend printing workshops at Maine Media Workshops this winter. I’m teaching a 2-day Introduction to Digital Printing workshop on March 15th-16th and a second time on April 26th-27th. I’m also teaching a 2-day Advanced Digital Printing workshop on April 5th-6th. I’m happy to answer any questions about either of the courses, and if you’d like to sign up, please click the links and go to the Maine Media Workshops site and follow the steps there. You can find all of my upcoming workshops here.

Here is the course description for the Introduction to Digital Printing workshop:

Bring your digital images to print form in this informative 2-day introductory workshop.

Learn techniques essential for generating high quality digital prints by exploring the relationship between image processing software like Adobe Lightroom and your printer. This course covers the basics of digital color and black & white printing, how to process images for print, common problems digital photographers encounter and how to develop a cohesive personal workflow for consistent output. Students generate and print images on a luster papers using Epson or Canon printers. Instruction includes lectures, demonstrations, critiques and hands-on exercises.

And here is the course description for the Advanced Digital Printing workshop:

Advance your printmaking in this intensive 2-day workshop.Students who have made the leap into digital printmaking may have learned the basics, but if you are striving to advance yourself, this workshop is for you. Students are exposed to use and evaluate the latest Epson printers, ink, papers, and profiles. An integrated approach to using Adobe products like Photoshop and Lightroom will all be detailed and practiced. This intense 2-day workshop goes deeper into fine-art printmaking and explains the tools needed to understand how it differs from making a basic print. Through direct classroom demonstration, critiques, and lectures, students learn a variety of techniques and tools that will help improve and refine both their digital files and print output. Participants leave with finished prints and the knowledge needed to get the results they are looking for. Also, students leave with a vastly expanded set of possibilities for making images.
