In this workshop we will examine camera calibration in the field for documentary purposes, white balance tricks for in the field purposes (for less post-processing), field steps achieving proper large prints (upscaling issues) for photographic purposes, and then we will do demos/lectures on print large-scale documentary digital photographic prints on some of the finest inkjet papers in the market. Hands-on demonstrations will make up the entire course with lectures and field demonstrations. Paper samples will be shared and examined for printing various subject matter. You will leave the course with large scale color digital pigment prints on 11×17, 13×19, & 17×22 paper printed on our large-format pigment Epson printers using images that you created in the field. This course is for anyone who has wanted to take a color photographic image (digital or scanned film) from an in the field start to finish, realized in the beautiful large print.
