Produce high-quality, archival, digital fine art prints working with a master in the field.

© George DeWolfeThe Digital Fine Print encompasses workflow from image capture through final printing, empowering participants with the knowledge to produce high-quality, digital, archival, exhibition quality fine art prints.

The first three days introduce a workflow through Lightroom and Photoshop and focus on the skills necessary to produce excellent prints on a consistent basis. The class covers Lightroom Library, Develop and Print Modules; Adobe camera raw, luminosity control; Photoshop overall, broad and local controls, noise reduction and sharpening, evaluation, printers and papers, color management, and display. Special emphasis is placed on George’s Optipix software.

The last two days are spent printing B&W and Color images in the lab with different brands and textures of paper. Emphasis and technique will be placed on good detail in the highlights and shadows, and good separation in the  
midtone values.

Prerequisite: An understanding of camera functions in manual mode and basic computer editing skills are required.

Instructors

George DeWolfe

George DeWolfe’s photography is filled with seeming contradictions of abstract/real and known/unknown issues that seem to fuse and resolve within his singular images. They are supremely of the moment.

George’s images are born out of the penetrating awareness of photographic moments that are highly personal, intuitive and sublime. Set simultaneously in conversation with the structures of ancient Chinese landscape painting and Western landscape genres, George’s artistic practice incorporates ideas from Buddhism and Gestalt Psychology, and encourages photographers to recapture a certain perceptual naiveté that we inadvertently unlearn as we grow. George’s publishing credits include At Home in the Wild, a book on New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Digital Photography Fine Print Workshop, and most recently, B&W Printing. He was a Senior Editor at View Camera and Camera Arts for 18 years.

His most recent honor was Award for Artistic Excellence presented by The National Park Service. George has photographed for many environmental organizations over the past 40 years: Appalachian Mountain Club, Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, Mass Audubon, National Park Service, America Rivers,
