Photographers grappling with the finer points of digital printing will be happy to hear a celebrated Australian art photographer will be holding a one-day workshop on professional quality printing in Auckland next month.
Fine art photographer Tim Handfield will be sharing his years of experience in creating collectable, exhibition-quality prints in the Auckland leg of Kodak’s 2012 Australia and New Zealand Seminar Series on May 1.
The aim of the workshop is to teach photographers how to get the most out of modern printing technologies without compromising the quality and subtlety of traditional photographic printing techniques.
The event, titled Pixels to Fine Art, covers the concepts and aesthetics of digital printing as well as technical elements and is therefore suitable to both photographers doing their own printing and working with photo labs, says the organiser.
“Despite the best in technology, many digitally produced prints have a harsh overworked look and lack the power and authenticity of traditional processes.”
Admission to the session, which begins at 10am on the Tuesday and runs until 4pm, costs $215, or $140 for students, and includes a 40-page full-colour book of workshop notes.
Places at the event are limited; email firstname.lastname@example.org to register – venue information will then be supplied along with a registration form.
