The great challenge, and ultimately the satisfying joy, of digital printmaking is to produce a print that matches our vision of an image. We accomplish this goal when we know the tools at our disposal and how to use them in a clear and repeatable way.
This is also the goal of this fun, one-day seminar with Bill Kennedy, Professor of Photography at St. Edward's University. A founding member of the Agnostic Print group, Bill operates K2 Press, a digital printing studio in Austin, Texas.
This in-depth seminar covers the tools needed to perfect the printmaking process including cameras and lenses, software for digital workflow, printers, inks, and papers. We use the university's Advanced Imaging Lab to demo a variety of ink sets, printers, and professional color management tools. In addition to these technical aspects, Bill also focuses on the importance of developing a personal printing style and how to get there.
Topics covered over the course of the day include: choosing your hardware and software; color management and the importance of display calibration; how to optimize images for printing and adjust them with the utmost control; making great black-and white conversions; archival paper and ink selections; choosing the right printer, and how to print on unconventional media.
If you have not yet perfected the ability to consistently produce prints you are proud of—prints that mirror your vision for an image—this seminar with Bill is a smart (and fun!) way to spend your day.
