Introduction to Digital Printing
In this class, students will learn to make high quality ink jet prints. Images can come from digital cameras or scanned film. Students will learn the technical skills of using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and color management to print with profiles, make test strips and refine the print. Through assignments and critiques, students will not only learn to print, but will develop their eye to see color and make interpretive choices in contrast, tone and saturation. Class time will include printing time on our Epson printers. Students will supply their own paper. Supplies will be discussed on the first night of class.
To participate in this class, student must be 18 years of age or the minimum of a high school graduate (or the equivalent).
