Master Guide to Digital Printmaking
Printing your images increases your perceived value as a photographer. Everyone has digital files sitting on hard drives or memory cards. To offer a beautifully finished printed piece shows that you care about your photography and that you put effort into the presentation of your imagery for your clients.
James Tan, a much sought after Print Master, will share about getting consistently good prints from Canon PIXMA PRO printers.
The talk will include demonstrations and the steps needed for Monitor Profiling and Color Management using Canon printers.
Canon PIXMA PRO expands the color gamut with improved saturation of colors and darker, deeper blacks that allows the professional photographer to achieve new levels of colors and skin tone reproduction. We bring you through the initial concept to finding the winning image, then processing these images for printing.
This workshop is right for you if you want to understand digital printmaking.
