On Sunday, March 30, 2008 from 10:00AM – 5:00PM I’ll be teaching a full-day workshop entitled The Portfolio and Fine-Art InkJet Print Workshop at Adorama Camera, 42 West 18th Street in New York City. I’m very excited about this class because each participant will walk away with at least one print from a pigment-based inkjet printer (Canon, Epson or HP). From many past experiences, this has been one of the best ways I’ve found to help others learn about how to print their photographs or other artwork. A few spaces still remain as of today (March 14), and the registration deadline for the Workshop is March 23. A full description of the class with information on how to register can be found here. If you are interested in future workshops, you can periodically check my teaching and workshop schedule on this page, and for private consulting via phone or in-person, feel free to contact me using the form on this page, or via phone at 732-742-0123.

Originally posted last month on one of my favorite blogs: PhotoshopNews.com, this excellent overview of over 30 books by some of the most recognized people in the imaging industry is well worth a look. From Photoshop-related titles like Real World Camera Raw by Bruce Fraser and Jeff Schewe; to Eric Meola’s book of Unseen Photos of Bruce Springsteen; to Peter Krogh’s Digital Asset Management book (The DAM book); to I Am America (And So Can You!), by Stephen Colbert, this is a fantastic group of titles. I was also very honored to have had my new book, 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques selected and reviewed by R. Mac Holbert of Nash Editions. More than 25 guest artists, including Mac Holbert, contributed to the 301 Inkjet Tips book.
I recently came across an excellent overview of Epson’s newest line of printers (the x880 series, which includes the Epson Stylus Pro 4880, 7880, 9880 and 11880). It was written by Joseph Holmes, a photographer who has made some of the most beautiful and detailed inkjet prints that I’ve ever seen. On the site you can also find some interesting movies that compare the color gamuts of a number of printers (each pair using similar papers), including Epson printers, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF5000, and the HP Designjet Z3100. If you are interested in the technology behind the printers, I highly recommend taking a look at the article here.
