Fine art prints are the yardstick by which critics measure our craft. The only way to truly judge the quality of an image is through the creativity and effort that generates a fine art print. They are permanent and can stop people in their tracks.
Let me share with you practical considerations over a range of topics that I have learned over both common and difficult printing issues. Color management. How your eyes and brain might not be seeing what you think you are looking at on your monitor. How to choose the right fine art papers. What’s wrong with my printer? And what do you need to worry about to develop a non-destructive image editing and printing workflow to preserve image quality from start to finish and print what you envisioned.
Plan on a thoughtful and open discussion with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Feel free to bring samples of your work to share and get critical feedback that might also be of interest to other workshop participants.
About the Instructor
After a successful 30 year career as a scientist, inventor, author, and program manager in the molecular diagnostics industry, Peter decided to channel his creative energies into art.
