I posted information on the InkjetTips.com and ImagingBuffet.com workshop pages a few weeks ago about two upcoming full-day workshops that I’m conducting in New Brunswick, NJ at Alfa Art Gallery on Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13. Some seats still remain for both workshops, which are limited to just 8 participants each. I currently have a show on exhibit at the gallery entitled East + West, featuring photographs of New York and Japan. Having the workshop at the gallery allows me to describe the prints up close, and properly lit under gallery spotlights.
The fee for either full-day workshop is just $179. I’d also like to offer a $30 discount on either of the two workshops to our readers, which is valid if you register by Thursday, 9/10.
For either day, the page will display “sold out” at the top if all 8 seats have been reserved.
All the best!
The Portland Metro Photographic News, a fantastic online magazine focused on photo news from the Northwest United States, recently reviewed 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques.
Here’s a short quote from the review:
…consider this book as an all-inclusive reference source for everything related to personal printmaking. The book is organized in a digital printing workflow manner, and presented in a language that’s easily understood by beginning and advanced photographers…In my camera bag is my camera manual. Alongside my computer sits my Photoshop manual. And next to my inkjet printer, you’ll find Andrew Darlow’s “301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques”.
Read the whole review of 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques here (as well as a review of other photo books).
The website has a Portland, Oregon area photo events calendar, plus many great news stories about photo shows, camera club news, and much more. One standout page on the site is a photo essay from Photolucida (a biannual photo event held in Portland) by Tom Hubbard, founder and publisher of PMPN.
I just received the newest issue of After Capture magazine (June/July 2009) and I’m happy to have been able to provide another “Rip this Page Out” article. This month, I’ve provided a resolution chart , similar to the one I make available to those who subscribe to my Inkjet & Imaging Tips Newsletter, as well as a description of how to use it and what resolution to choose for different purposes.
If you qualify for a free subscription of After Capture , it will be delivered to you in hardcopy form. The June/July issue has a number of excellent articles (including one very helpful one about Lightroom, metadata and what happens behind the scenes in the application). I highly recommend taking a look at the website-AfterCapture.com. All the PDFs from the current and past issues can be downloaded there.

I recently had the honor of being interviewed for a segment of Photofocus, a podcast and website run by Scott Bourne. Most of the show is a collection of questions from readers/listeners of the show, and I think that the information presented is excellent. The main contributors to the show are Scott Bourne and Rick Sammon. They have both put a lot of film and flash cards through many cameras, and they really know their stuff.
On the show I answered some questions about how inkjet papers can be used for things other than traditional prints, and I covered some suggestions regarding image resolution.
The site is filled with a lot of photo tips and info, and I believe it is well worth a look for newbies to professional photographers. Visit this page on the site to listen to the show and read the show notes, or you can subscribe to the podcast on their site.
I’m very happy to announce that I’m conducting two color management/fine-art printing workshops on January 31, 2009 at a new pro rental/fine-art reproduction studio located in Hillsborough, NJ (near Princeton). One runs from 10am-3pm and the other from 4pm-7pm.
