The 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 two days are spent partly in the lab and partly photographing on location. Students cover raw workflow in color and black–and–white images, study the importance and use of luminosity, and set up of digital cameras for quality capture.
The last three days introduce workflow through Lightroom and Photoshop and focus on the skills necessary to produce excellent prints on a consistent basis. The class covers Lightroom Library and Develop 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.
Prerequisite: An understanding of camera functions in manual mode and basic computer editing skills are required.
